USA - Kelly Clarkson, the singer-songwriter who rose to fame after winning the 2002 American Idol, has recently been a regular coach on The Voice and is set to host The Kelly Clarkson Show in September.
She also hit the road earlier this year to play venues across the US on her first tour in nearly four years. Lighting design for the Meaning of Life outing was by Roy Bennett, who employed an overhead grid of 120 Elation DARTZ 360 LED fixtures to accentuate nearly all aspects of the highly entertaining show.
Key design elements of the set included a VIP bar that surrounded the B-stage to enhance the party environment, and a large upstage video screen that displayed a variety of content including heavy amounts of I-Mag. The DARTZ, housed in 10 overhead lines of truss, 12 fixtures per truss, complemented both in Bennett’s cohesive design.
"The DARTZ 360 is a bright, reliable, fast, and compact light source,” he says of the narrow-beam LED luminaire, which were supplied for the tour by Upstaging. “It's proven itself to be the best when used in mass.”
The ceiling of DARTZ fixtures was used for a variety of looks from upbeat numbers to theatrical looks to more subtle moments. The fixture’s punchy output and three-degree aperture complemented the large video screen without overpowering it. They also provided attractive on-camera visuals for broadcast segments of each show that were live-streamed on Clarkson’s Facebook page.
