Roadies In Lockdown - Episode 3: Sam Augustus, Blacktrax Engineer
“…about Roger and that scuba mask.”
Boy, it never rains but it pours. Some stunning live footage from the Rhapsody tour in Japan and Australia as Sam walks us through his role as Blacktrax Engineer which involves making sure the lighting system properly tracks the positions of the band around the stage during the live show. This sees him spending a large part of the day waving a variety of different sticks in the air. He reminisces about a particularly chaotic and ‘quite farcical’ show day in Brisbane, Australia, and reveals the story behind Roger Taylor and some novel stage wear.
