Shakira plays Dubai with Clay Paky
Dubai - Production Technology LLC (Protec), the region's leading event production company, made history in the United Arab of Emirates when it staged the Dubai-leg of Shakira's Oral Fixation Tour, branded as the biggest concert ever in the region and promoted by the locally-based Mirage Promotions.

The concert at the Dubai Autodrome was witnessed by a crowd of 25,000. The Protec team, headed by Rick Wade, provided and installed the show's set-up.

Shakira's tour lighting designer, specified his preferred lighting including, 43 Clay Paky Alpha Wash 575, 10 Clay Paky Alpha Wash 1200 and 213 Par Cans which was used to light up the 20mx40m stage. In addition, they brought with them 28 Clay Paky Alpha Spot HPE 1200 as part of their touring equipment. All of these were controlled by one GrandMA lighting console running the show entirely to time code.
