worshiptour-2The tour featured Casting Crowns, Hillsong Worship and Elevation Worship
USA - Premier Productions recently wrapped a special 2019 USA arena tour featuring multi-platinum-selling artists Casting Crowns, Hillsong Worship and Elevation Worship. Bandit Lites provided the lighting for the concert series as each evening showcased the three acts as they gathered their fan bases for a night of worship and praise.
“It takes teamwork to pull off a show of this nature and I must say each individual involved worked together in tandem to make this show look easy and beautiful,” said Bandit Lites vice president Mike Golden. “I had the pleasure of working with production manager Cory Edwards for the first time and I was extremely impressed with his professional, confident demeanour. Putting a show of this magnitude together with three very high-profile acts requires attention to detail as well as being able to adjust on the fly. Cory guided the ship on a daily basis with a smile on his face and a positive attitude that never wavered.”
Lighting designer Seth Jackson engineered cohesive design that multiple lighting designers could utilise to their own ends, a space that Jackson jokingly referred to as ‘a sandbox to play in.’
“My fixture choice, therefore, was based on the most flexibility,” he said. “Earlier in the year, Chauvet had shown me the MK3 in its early stages, and I was looking for the opportunity to get them into the field. The quality of output, the CRI and the multitude of options in the light made it the perfect choice.
“Josh Chambless, from Premier Productions, was integral to this success. He was able to bring everyone into the loop and keep the information train running. After that, 3D models, Bandit’s patch and plot, and the video mapping were sent out to each act to attack their own pre-viz process.”
Bandit Lites supplied more than 100 fixtures including the Chauvet Maverick MK3 Spots, Circa Scoops, Elation Smarty, Elation Proteus Rayzor 760 and Elation Proton Eclypse. MA 2 Consoles allowed each LD to have their own operating style and playback integrations but with seamless transitions between the acts themselves.
