Accrington’s iMEP goes global for US debut of world famous Rock & Metal Concert

The concert, which features a band of classical musicians performing the biggest rock and metal songs of all time and experienced sell out tours in the UK and across Europe, took place at Palladium Times Square in New York last November.

iMEP were brought in to fully manage the event production in a turnkey operation including staging, lighting, sound, special effects, monitor engineers, backline technicians and more.

Not only does the concert feature classic rock and metal tracks from the last 40 years including Metallica, AC/DC, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Led Zeppelin, but also a spectacular display of candles, floating lanterns, giant headbanging puppets and much more, all of which required the highest level of attention to detail from the LS Music Studios team.

Eddy O’Brien, CEO of iMEP, said: “It was an absolute honour to play such a pivotal role in one of the most world renowned concerts in the world. For them to choose an #AmazingAccrington business is incredible!

“The Rock Orchestra by Candlelight event is first class entertainment featuring hugely talented musicians and having enjoyed sell out tours around Europe, there was big pressure to deliver in what was the first tour to the US.
