Duran Duran’s Astronaut World Tour begins this month in the US with all original five band members and three custom circles designed and manufactured by Tomcat USA. The tour supports the group’s latest CD, Astronaut.
Tomcat USA worked with to create the three circles in three different diameters: 13.5’, 25.5’ and 40’. All three will be a vital part of the moving light show for this tour. Although each circle was made using a fairly common medium duty 20.5" bolted format, the project was particularly challenging because the truss required a custom diagonal pattern to accommodate specific lighting requirements.
The tour kicked off in San Juan, Puerto Rico on February 8 and has more than 40 other dates throughout the US before it heads overseas.
