When people think of the best magician and illusionist on the planet, Criss Angel, is often the first that comes to mind. The Mindfreak himself, has now brought his exciting Rock and Roll brand of magic to Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
This 2019/2020 Criss Angel, Mindfreak Show captivates and excites audience members in a way not seen since Harry Houdini walked the planet.
The show boasts over 75 mind-bending illusions with hair raising, state of the art effects. XSF is proud to have been involved and helped create such an amazing show.
“There are over 900 linear feet of truss over the audience with over a half a billion pixels of video.”
“There is only one truss company I could trust to make this all work and that’s XSFTruss!”
The Staging and Custom Truss for Mindfreak, Criss Angel
The show is described as a “technological marvel, designed to overload your senses and support Criss Angel’s visionary magic”. As one would expect, this Mindfreak Show came with several technical challenges and innovations that required a high level of detail and precision.
There is a lot of truss in this show, some is above the audience, some on stage, and some off. With that said, one unique aspect of this show was simply the variety of sizes and custom truss required for different reasons and purposes. While 100’s of feet of 20.5” x 20.5” truss was used in horizontal spans and vertical columns on and off stage, XSF also created a “never built before custom ”12” high by 6” wide truss, for use over head to carry above-average weight capacities.
Completely powder coated black, the star truss of this show is the 9 “fingers” of truss and video panels that span from front of stage to back of house. Each truss span is approximately 50 feet long and supports ½ meter X ½ meter LED Video over the audience.
