R.I.P. TJ Thompson, 1963-2014

With great sadness, we report the passing of TJ Thompson. TJ was the production manager on Lady Gaga's tours in 2009 and early 2010, from the first head-lining tour, The Fame Ball, in March 2009, through the summer 2009 world tour and the theatre Monster Ball shows until the first leg of the Monster Ball arena tour in March 2010. He passed away on May 28, 2014 at the age of 51.
Lady Gaga fans may recognize TJ as the guy who caught Gaga's microphone at the end of Poker Face during the shows on the Fame Ball tour. Besides working for Gaga, TJ had a very long career and worked as rigger and production manager for many artists in pop and rock, including Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Ciara, Janet Jackson, Micheal Jackson, Rodger Waters, The Eagles, David Bowie, Kid Rock, U2, Def Leppard, David Lee Roth, Matchbox 20, Queensr├┐che, Marilyn Manson, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent, Bon Jovi, Kiss, and more. May he rest in peace.
Thomas "TJ" Thompson, May 11, 1963 - May 28, 2014
