Behind the Farewell Yellow Brick Road stage

Watch the video above to see Mike Gomez, Elton’s head production rigger, talks us through all of the work that goes into getting the Farewell Yellow Brick Road stage ready for the show each night.

“The Monster” has 107 individual rigging points, takes up 90ft of the arena floor and weighs more than 46 tons!

The FYBR tour kicks off again tonight in Boise, ID. For photos of every show so far, head to the Tour Gallery.
