The Equipment You Need for Your Artist Reveal

by | Jan 22, 2020 | BLOG

Imagine the opening show of the international tour you’ve spent the last year planning. The sleepless nights, thousands of equipment pieces, and back and forth negotiations have all been worth it. The opening act leaves the stage, and the lights lower. You know the next few minutes will set the tone for the whole show––the whole tour. Just when the crowd thinks the artist reveal will happen, it’s a false alarm. As planned, the artist rises from the floor as if levitating. What. A. Reveal. 

 

An artist reveal sets the tone

Artist reveals give your spectators that heart-pumping adrenaline that keeps a show dynamic and memorable. When you want to surprise the audience, there’s nothing better than a dramatic entrance or exit. We have the equipment to do just that. 

 

Ribbon Lifts

When you need to lift your artist to new heights above the crowd, the ribbon lift is your ticket. Whether mid-set or from the get-go, the ribbon lift will surprise your audience and give your performers a new outlook. What’s more, All Access has the only 12-inch ribbon lift certified for live loads in the U.S. (J.Lo exclusively uses it). 

 

Versa Star Lift 

Also known as star trap lifts, these are the most reliable on the market. Adjustable to virtually any stage height, you can also change the speed. So your artist can rise slowly from under the stage to the stadium going wild. Or rise quickly to gasps and cheers.  

 

Pop Up Toaster Lifts 

Very similar to the Star Lift (we call them cousins) is the Pop Up Toaster Lift. While your artist won’t eject from the lift like a piece of toast, they will pop on stage suddenly (with up to three feet of air). As with all our products, we guarantee safety and reliability.

 

Magic Stairs 

If you have a flair for the dramatic, how about your artist entering from a flight of stairs beneath the stage that seem to magically appear? Our Magic Stairs lay flush with a stage deck then transform to reveal an entrance from below. Before the audience knows it, the entire production has changed. 

 

Levitating Stairs 

The All Access Levitating Stairs could compete in any magic show. The trick here? Our mechanical effects keep the stair flush with the stage deck until the big lift, when your artist seems to levitate off the floor. These stairs take any artist reveal and performance to new heights. 

 

Versa Kabuki Curtain Sniffer 

A strange name for a sensational piece of equipment. The Versa Kabuki Curtain Sniffer can create an artist reveal in seconds by sucking a curtain into the sniffer (or snifter as it’s sometimes called). The effect is similar to that of a magician’s disappearing act behind a curtain. Here, of course, the idea is the shock and awe of revealing the full set. 

 

Artist reveal: the wow factor 

Sometimes you need a little drama to take your show to an 11. For any live event, the wow factor can be elusive. But, with a surprising artist reveal––whether at the beginning or mid-set––you can achieve the heart-pumping production you’re searching for. Our team is ready to work with you to do something that’s never been done before. Let’s get started
