Themewise, this was going to fit and promote the 'Live At The
Dome DVD" recorded the previous year. It featured a combined
photo on the front - one blurry photo of the stage including
Oakey, which I made even more blurry + added alot of light, to
give it a mystical appearance. Another image (of the crowd) were
added on top. The crowd were lifted out of the photo, to give me a vector
image, I could now toss and turn as I wanted. The guy in the
middle, pointing in the air is a guy called Ian Fribbance - a
huge fan, I've had the pleasure of meeting a few times - he had
no idea he were going to grace pretty much every merchandise
item during the tour.
The band did a photosession to promote the tour, so this year
around I had around 100 professional and brand new photos to
work with. Furthermore had David Beevers (their sound engineer)
requested fans on the messageboard, to write about
experiences with seeing the band live. I don't think at that
point anyone knew what it was going to be used for, and asking
on the board, didn't gave any replies. The many incoming replies
suddenly ended up in my mailbox - it was a great idea.
Size: 240 mm x 340 mm.
Paper: heavy hi-quality glossy.
Apart from artwork and photos, the programme included 3½ pages
of fan text.
Other credits included Will Scott for
live photos. The front were also used as the sleeve for the Live
At The Dome releases.
