1 day left to enter our giveaway that celebrates UWP super halftime tradition! So here is a captivating fact of UWP's crucial role in shaping entertainment for half time shows.

UWP FACT:

Up with People were the first entertainers to install theatrical lighting in the ceilings of football stadiums. Installation took two weeks for the technical staff to complete at both the ceilings of the Pontiac Silverdome and the Louisiana Superdome. This was done because if the lights were turned off, there would not be time to turn them back on to full brightness following the halftime performance. UWP, developed and installed a series of โ€œ12 foot window shadesโ€ and a pulley systems with 4 window shades each, 3 with color gels and 1 blackout (red. blue, yellow and blackout curtain) that extend out and over all the lights banks in the stadium. The shades were operated and queued via headset to 100 Airborne Rangers who had the ability to change the overall color of the stadium or completely black it out. A series of installed theatrical lighting trusses were hung from the ceiling and motored down to presentation height for theatrical lighting enhancement of the stage center piece.
