Last summer, lighting designer Max Conwell was contacted to create a design for Razorlight’s first UK arena tour.
The tour began in October and has continued into this year travelling all over Europe and to the USA showcasing Razorlight as one of the most popular indie-rock bands of today.
The rig includes 12 PixelLine 1044s, Mac 2000 washes, X-Spots, and customized motorized louvers made by SpecialZ. The PixelLines are rigged at different heights across the stage wrapping around the band. Björn Ågren Razorlight’s lead guitarist described it as looking like a cityscape at night.
Max enthuses: “Playing such a diverse selection of venues, PixelLines are an obvious choice for me. They are incredibly bright, have a fantastic range of colors but also have the advantage of low power consumption. This is very important, as I know whatever the venue size the integrity of the design will be constant and they are also cool enough to put right next to the band.”
Max continues: “PixelLines and PixelPars are always my first choice for LED fixtures. Their reliability and quality of light prove themselves again and again. And with the focus these days very much on the environment the use of LED luminaires will factor more and more.”
A Hog IPC is in control and the lighting was supplied by Neg Earth in Europe and Ed & Ted’s Excellent Lighting in North America.
