“EAV” (1977-2019) redefined Austrian pop music and blended performance art, comedy and music into a highly sophisticated and entertaining spectacle. Austrian culture, language and sense of humor were central to their artistry.

The tour “Werwolf Attacke” (“Werewolf Attack”) shared the same name as the band’s most recent album at the time.
Working out the lighting and production design in close collaboration with EAV mastermind Thomas Spitzer, the band’s edgy and eclectic character was ultimately reflected in the asymmetrical design approach and stark contrasts compared to the typically cheerful, trendy and colorful stage sets of the past. From a technical perspective, the design also had to be scalable to fit all venue sizes with all its different technical premises. And for the first time in the band’s history, EAV chose to use an LED screen on stage, as well!
