  • Technical Ecstasy - Stage Design

    Did Sabbath use the "clam shell" drum riser for both the Sabotage and Technical Ecstasy tours? Video footage from 1975 suggests this began with Sabotage, but the Technical Ecstasy tour guide features it prominently- not sure whether that meant they recycled the stage setup, or if these pictures were simply culled from the previous tour.

    You're right. The live pictures in the TE tourbook were from the Sabotage tour. TE tour stage design was a large backdrop designed by Hipgnosis. The drum riser had a wood panel finish with 'Henry' logos in black on the side of the riser.

    Here are some shots, but I think this is a smaller venue, so only part of it is visible. There are shots from larger venues where you can see more of it if you look around.
