Bandit on Blake Shelton dates
Lighting designer Jody Marsh chose to use Martin MAC 500s and MAC 600s for this tour. Lighting is controlled by a Whole Hog II. He said the thought process behind the design had to do primarily with the venues they would be playing.
"I know what I'm going to get from local vendors and then I make changes accordingly to essentially pull off the same show every night," Marsh explained. "You may not see the lights hung the same every night but you're still getting the same overall product, or as close to it as you can get. Creatively, I know what I can do with the lights."
Marsh said that biggest challenge for this tour is just to be flexible. "This past weekend we had two shows. One show was a 'normal day.' The second show, I didn't have the ability to hang any lights upstage. I had my towers and I had them bring some additional towers. It was a completely different rig, but with adjustments, the show was essentially the same," Marsh commented.
