Bandit Lites announces it has signed several new acts for 2002 with more pending.

Shakira (LD Patrick Dierson) is touring in support of her new album. Luis Miguel (LD Fabian Boggino) is touring the world with a huge system featuring the Bandit MotoData truss cueing system and a plethora of Martin MACs. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (LD Keith Wissmar) is set to take a bigger system than ever before into arenas across the country through the spring. Toby Keith (LD Eddie “Bones” Connell) takes his unique form of country music around the states this spring, and a High End Systems rig unlike any other Bandit has ever done before, the company says. Dream Theater (LD Ben Richards) is touring its unique form of rock-meets-classical music with a Martin MAC-based system. Slayer (LD Bryan Hartley) is back again, touring the US with a Martin moving light system. Brian Wilson (LD Will Twork) is touring the world with a mix of classics and new music under a Martin moving light rig. System of a Down (LD Jesper Luth) is embarking on a massive world tour under a Martin-based lighting system.

Also new to the Bandit roster of clients for 2002 is Acquire the Fire's Unshakeable tour with lighting designer Danny Zacharias. This festival of inspirational speakers and Christian bands is set to tour theatres and arenas across the US. With multiple groups playing on the same stage versatility is key. The system is a predominantly High End Systems moving-light package.

Country music crossover band Lonestar began a tour in February in support of its album I'm Already There. The package of High End Systems moving lights provides lighting designer Alex Krompic with versatility and the ability to fill any size venue with light.
