U2 have yet another reason to get the champagne flutes out as a result of their 360º Tour winning ‘Best Live Production’ at the 2009 Total Production Awards in London.
“It’s a massive engineering feat – from scenery to video to audio with the biggest PA system to ever be seen on a tour,” remarked Total Production magazine editor Mark Cunningham. “The four members of U2 are effectively the icing on the cake.”
There were also gongs for U2 crew-members Willie Williams (‘Lighting Designer Of The Year’ and ‘Video Visionary’), Jake Berry (‘Best Production Manager’) and Dallas Schoo (‘Best Backline Tech’).
“'It's not so much an awards ceremony, more like a family punch-up at a wedding reception,” remarks a slightly sore-headed Williams. “A great reunion for the 360 team and we're looking forward to taking it all out on the road again soon.”
