VIDEO: Global superstar Drake puts drones to work as part of his 2018 tour

2017 Toronto International Film Festival – “The Carter Effect” Premiere

Verity Studios’ micro drones have been used in Canadian rapper Drake’s performances to create flying waves and drone swarms.

Aiming to light up the stage, the drones, along with Drake, will tour 50 locations and perform to audiences of over 50,000 people.

However, this is not a first for the Lucie micro drones which have already made their musical debuts on tour with Metallica and Circus Knie.

‘Elevate’, a song on Drake’s new album Scorpion, opens with the micro drones swarming onto the stage to surround Drake in a cloud of lights and, in another guest appearance, the Lucie micro drones create a light wave in the song ‘Look Alive’ before forming a red 3D cross that rotates around Drake.

Verity Studios were used to initially set up the drones but they are now operated by Drake’s tour team night after night.

Based in Switzerland, Verity Studios aims to bring technology to the arts and believe that drone technology is a way in which it can do so.
