Bennett and FitzGerald have captured the essence of the ‘90s era and added a contemporary twist by mixing the classic rock and roll look of Par Cans with the beam work and vibrant color palette of high-power moving lights. Forty-eight Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 Beams are rigged on vertical truss facing out, while 53 Philips Vari-Lite VL4000 BeamWash fixtures provide backlight, sidelight and a myriad of bright, bold effects. The lighting package is being supplied by leading international rental operation VER.
“The Philips Vari-Lite VL4000 BeamWash is one of my favorite lights of all time,” said FitzGerald. “It does everything you need it to do; it’s fast, it’s bright, it can create all kinds of textures and so it’s the perfect workhorse for a production like this that’s 70% lighting.”
