Pink Floyd, AC/DC, U2 Stage Designer Mark Fisher Dies

Mark Fisher

Stage designer Mark Fisher, whose illustrious career included work for a long list of top-selling acts such as AC/DC, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones, has passed away at the age of 66.

NME reports that Fisher, who’d been battling an undisclosed illness for a lengthy period, died “peacefully in his sleep” while resting in hospice. He is survived by his wife, who was at his side when he passed away.

“We are all extremely saddened to hear of the death of our dear friend Mark Fisher,” lamented the Stones in a press release. “The remarkable sets he designed for us over the last two decades played a major part in the success of all those tours. His passion, dedication and professionalism was infectious. We all loved his dry sense of humour and unflappable demeanour… a quietly soft spoken genius… Mark will be sorely missed – not only by us… but by every single member of ours… and any crew he worked with. Our sincere condolences go to his wife and family.”

The celebrated architect and designer, whose many honors included membership in the Order of the British Empire, Royal Victorian Order, and Royal Designers for Industry, was involved in a number of major rock tours, including Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ and a long list of shows for the Stones, AC/DC, U2, and Peter Gabriel, as well as pop stars such as Madonna and Lady Gaga.
