Concert Design: The Road, The Craft, The Industry offers an exceptional journey though the world of concert design, exploring not only its unique design attributes but also the industry that has grown around it and how to make a career of ‘the road’.

Concert designer Seth Jackson analyzes how the industry has changed over the last three decades – from its early days of ‘no rules’ and ‘cowboys’ to a thriving and growing industry with countless career opportunities. Drawing on 25 years of experience and clients ranging from Carrie Underwood to Don Henley, he explores design techniques, working with Artists and directors, the rigors of concert touring, and navigating a career path through a challenging industry. The book also includes stories from numerous industry luminaries such as Steve Cohen, Jeff Ravitz, Eric Loader, Howard Ungerleider, and Jim Lenahan, along with Jackson’s own experiences.

Written for aspiring concert lighting designers and students of Concert Lighting and Theatre Lighting courses, Concert Design is an excellent resource for anyone who has ever wondered what backstage life is really all about.
