Legendary band tours with innovative lighting
The ambitious and complex Steampunk-inspired set for Rush’s Time Machine tour included more than 80 ColorBlaze 72 and ColorBlaze 48 RGB stage lights rigged horizontally and vertically on an innovative animatronic truss with articulating hinges, designed to look and behave like an enormous mechanical spider hanging above the stage. Lighting designer Howard Ungerleider used the ColorBlaze fixtures alongside well over 100 other stage lights, which received content from an integrated video control solutions and content server.
LED lighting plays a more central role in the stage lighting than it has on previous Rush tours. In concert with other LED lighting fixtures in the set, the ColorBlaze fixtures produced rich, saturated colors on stage, and provided camera-approved color correction for video production and photography.
