PRG Delivers 360° Services for Triller Fight Club PPV Event in Atlanta

PLSN Staff • News • April 25, 2021

ATLANTA – The first Triller Fight Club PPV event was held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on April 17. PRG supplied lighting, LED, media servers, audio and crew services for the blowout boxing and music event, which combined epic design and performance elements to give a fresh take on the boxing format. PRG was called on to support the lighting design from Tom Kenny with a flown lighting rig above the ring as well as a performance stage for the musical acts.

Moore details from PRG (www.prg.com):

The Triller team sought to reinvent the sport with their event, which featured creative production design and felt like a party. The intention was to create a spectacle that could appeal to almost every demographic rather than boxing or music fans specifically. With multiple styles of production and programming, PRG’s unique ability to provide and integrate multiple technical disciplines, acting as a 360° resource, made it the logical choice of production partners. That and the show’s sheer scale: The sprawling production setup covered almost the entirety of the stadium floor, with more than 1,500 lights and five rigs.

On the boxing side, YouTuber Jake Paul beat former MMA champion Ben Askren by TKO in less than two minutes in the featured showcase. West coast rap supergroup Mt. Westmore (Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, E-40 and Too $hort) had their debut with a performance of their first single “Big Subwoofer.” Fans also enjoyed performances from Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie and Diplo.

With the event reportedly pulling in approximately 1.4 million pay-per-view (PPV) buys, fans are likely to see more from Triller in this format. PRG’s unrivaled experience in sports, special events, and concert touring uniquely qualifies them as a production partner for this new wave of hybrid productions
