Nice!quote:Production designer Oli Metcalfe and tour director Glen Rowe expanded on Bellamy’s claims that there would be drones, promising "a whole swarm of drones" and a stage "like a double headed arrow".
"We’ve been able to work with a company in the Netherlands that have written a piece of software that can control a whole swarm of drones," Metcalfe revealed. "So we’re programming them in a different way. They’re not manned, they’re not manned vehicles as in somebody with a controller. They’re controlled by a computer system and tracking system."
