The Live Tour project is an idea that comes from Universal Brand Development, Fast Live Productions and tour producers Live Nation Entertainment. It is all about promoting F&F franchise from the start up until now. Today is the day that they finally decided to announce Fast & Furious Live Tour dates and according to the crew the show is set to start in London at the world famous O2 Arena on January 19, 2018, and after that, the tour will continue across Europe.
What exactly can we expect from this tour was explained in the statement given by the Creative director and executive producer of Fast & Furious Live Rowland French who said “It’s been years in the making, and we are beyond excited to finally show fellow fans what we have been creating in order to bring “Fast & Furious Live” to the global stage. With this mix of extraordinary stunts, special effects, cutting-edge 3D-projection mapping – as well as drivers pushing their own limits — every performance will create an unforgettable experience for the live audience. Twenty-three cities across 14 countries is just the beginning for “Fast & Furious Live.” You should also know that this will be the adrenaline-fueled, two-hour show that the arena has never seen before with precision performance driving and newly-created, physics-defying stunts. As you can imagine the show will feature all the favorite cars and locations plus the key scenes from the film series which will be recreated via state-of-the-art 3D projection mapping, and this will allow you to immerse yourself in the F&F movies and have an experience like never before.
Vince Klaseus, President of Universal Brand Development stated that “Fast & Furious Live’ will allow audiences worldwide to experience the extreme action sequences from the franchise through an authentic live experience.” He continued by adding “With this live show, we are redefining fan access and bringing audiences closer than ever to their favorite movie moments.”
Thanks to this event all of us F&F enthusiasts will have a chance to breathe some of the flaming exhausts and enjoy the acrobatics enhanced by the most advanced digital projection technology imaginable. We will be able to enjoy the cars like Dom’s legendary Dodge Charger and the flip car from Fast & Furious 6 and relive the best moments from the franchise.
To make this professional as possible, the Live Tour productions made a selection from thousands of the world’s best stunt performers and drivers and thinned it down to only the ultimate elite team who made it through the 4 months of grueling training camp in preparation for the world tour. To make the team complete a world’s leading parkour athletes will join them and make this a truly global cast performing stunts like you have never seen before. Phil Bowdery, executive President Touring International Music, Live Nation stated: “As the world’s largest live-entertainment company, we have been part of many incredible shows, but we are especially thrilled to be working on ‘Fast & Furious Live,’ which will offer fans a spectacle on an unprecedented scale.”
