Beast of a light for Iron MaidenNews
Posted by: electime 31st July 2018
The iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden is packing arenas and wowing head-banging crowds with its spectacular Legacy of the Beast European tour. Helping to bring its richly-designed stage show to life is entertainment lighting from Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting.
The company’s Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 beams provide both the heavy-duty punch and the subtlety required by lighting designer Robert Coleman – from a searchlight that depicts war, to illuminating a stunning cathedral and finally, Hell. “They are versatile and incredibly powerful – they’ve been hitting the back wall of the stadiums,” he said. “Also, the combined colors from them have been stunning. I have particularly enjoyed the strobe, especially when blasting the audience.” The 38-date Legacy of the Beast European tour marks the band’s 16th studio album and ends in London on August 11.
