Country superstar Miranda Lambert is back on tour with Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE
K20s lighting the way.
Miranda Lambert’s “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars’ tour reprises the name of her
first headlining tour in 2010. It follows her “Certified Platinum’ tour earlier this
year and features an all-female line-up.
“This is a 13-city tour playing a lot of the markets that Miranda hasn’t been able to
hit in recent years,’ notes Nashville-based production designer Chris Lisle. “The
design of the show is pretty straightforward with three overhead trusses and a floor
lighting package. We also have some soft goods and scenic pieces that play heavily
into the design. Miranda wanted to keep this one simple, so there are no video
elements. She just wanted to go out, have fun musically and do a “bad ass light
Lisle selected 20 Clay Paky B-EYE K20s for the rig. Ten each are in midstage and
upstage trusses alternating with spot and beam fixtures. “For some songs we use
them as wash lights, on others we dial into the macros in Shapes mode to create
some great visuals and effects since we have no video,’ he explains. “We also
used the lens rotation quite a bit. The B-EYEs work great and add a ton of visual
impact to the show.’
Bandit Lites provided the equipment for the tour.
Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, added,
“Mr. Lisle has been using our lights in a lot of creative ways and we are please that
he continues to choose Clay Paky for his shows.’
A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.
