Peter Gabriel is well-known for his many solo hit singles and albums, and as lead singer of rock band Genesis for many years. In 2003 he was the first to utilise the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) in a stage performance. Here is the singer and his female vocalist riding a pair of original Segway HT i167 models during a live performance of the song Games Without Frontiers.
Weird Al Yankovic is another other well-known performer to use a PT. He rides one in the music video for his parody song “White and Nerdy” and name-checks it in the lyrics. When Al toured in 2007, Segway NZ provided a red HT i180 for him to use on stage at the Auckland show. Here’s a photo from that tour.
Snoop Dogg and Kiwi rapper Ethical are other artists who’ve featured Segway PTs in their music videos. Check out Ethical’s video, shot on Auckland’s North Shore using a fleet of PTs from Segway NZ.
