Pop artist Pink is on her first headlining tour with a stage full of colors from High End Systems automated luminaires.
LD Ethan Weber specified a mix of 45 Studio Color® 575 and Studio Spot® 575 automated luminaires to paint Pink’s "Get the Party Started" tour, which runs May 2-Sept. 2 in North America.
"I was hoping to use some Studio Beam™ and x.Spot™ fixtures," Weber says. "But it's a budget-conscious tour and we decided to go with quantity at the expense of some effects, which has worked out very well. I ended up with 45 fixtures which gives some pretty big looks in the theaters we've been doing."
This is Weber's first time to design, program and tour with the Studio Series, and he says he's found some "pretty good and interesting effects" in the Studio Spots.
Pink is touring the amphitheatre circuit, with a few smaller theaters interspersed in the itinerary. For the May 12 show in Austin, Weber had to adjust the rig a bit. "Usually we have three 'grandstand' configurations," he says, "but for this show, we had to go with three straight trusses and low trim."
