Markiplier, one of YouTube’s most successful digital content creators, has embarked upon his debut European tour and Hawthorn is on board supplying technical equipment for the fast-selling dates which visits sixteen cities across the UK and Europe. 

American gamer and comedic personality Markiplier is currently one of the top 25 most-subscribed YouTube channels with over 19.5 million subscribers and 6 billion video views. Best known for his Let's Play gameplay commentary videos, commonly of survival horror and action video games, Markiplier's You're Welcome tour is offering live audiences an on-stage adventure with a mix of games, sketches and a cast of characters.

The European tour comes hot on the heels of Markiplier’s debut tour, which sold out at multiple venues in the US.

Our Hire division has supplied a range of equipment to specification, including a 20’8” x 11’11” fast fold screen, ETC Gio Desk, Showtec Par7’s, Yamaha QL5, 12 channels of microphone frequencies and stage draping.  We also supplied distro and cable, as well as transformers and cabling to work with the American equipment brought along for the tour.

Phil Holden, Production Manager said “Having never toured Europe before, our needs required extra attention because of the difference between tech in the States and the tech in Europe. Working with Hawthorn made it so much easier than I had anticipated. They were patient and thorough, and checked in with us throughout to make sure everything was going well. When we return to Europe, my first call will be to them.”

Markiplier's tour continues this year with dates across Australia.
