Rent What? Inc. Cabaret rental drapes were used at a special July Aerosmith concert at the Forum in LA, in a new arrangement of the iconic song, “Dream On”.
Online PR News – 25-August-2014 – Rancho Dominguez, CA – Imagine the delight of Rent What? Inc. last month when they learned that their rental drapes were being considered for use during a special July 30th Aerosmith concert at the Forum in LA. The stylish Cabaret Crimson drape was ultimately chosen as part of a surprise reveal of the Southern California Children’s Chorus, in performing along with Aerosmith in new version of the band’s classic 1973 song, "Dream On". This special version of the song was dedicated to the band’s hometown of Boston, Massachusetts.
Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry released the new arrangement of “Dream On”, to honor the victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The 2013 Marathon bombing resulted in three deaths, and more than 260 were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon.
The drapery rental company, Rent What? Inc. was first contacted by Steve “Chopper” Borges, veteran Production Manager for legendary rockers, Aerosmith. Borges was looking for an interesting drape, along with traveler track, to use for the tour’s upcoming show at the Forum in LA. Megan Duckett, the company’s President and CEO, suggested the opulent Crimson Cabaret bi-parting drape as an eye-catching addition to the set design, and Borges agreed. Plans for the Concert’s stage drapery rental moved speedily along from there.
Duckett says, “This drape’s exquisite 100% fullness, and extra touches like its gold bullion and intricately detailed gold satin trims and accents, help this decadent drape set light beautifully on any stage. Its beautiful patterns and details gives stage designers a “creative ease” not always experienced with rental drapes.”
