ALIA Tour to Coldplay, Brisbane

Posted on Friday, March 6th, 2009

We all know who Coldplay are. We also all know that they deliver a top production wherever they play and I’m sure Australia will be the same.

Lucky Brisbane lighting folks will have the opportunity of a backstage tour of their lighting rig next Monday. Fraser Elisha, the band’s lighting director will take the tour. I don’t have an exact gear list as yet but here’s the European list which I don’t think will be massively different.

Lighting Console: Flying Pig Systems Wholehog 3 and Wing, Catalyst and Green Hippo Hippotizer media servers, 17 x Martin MAC 2000 Wash XBs, 7 x MAC 2000 Wash Fixtures, 32 x MAC 700 Spots, 20 x MAC 250 Wash Fixtures, 27 x Martin Atomic 3000 Strobes (10 w/ scrollers), 4 x Nova Flowers, 12 x i-Pix BB4s, 10 x Omni Wash Lights, 28 x Mole Richardson 4-Lite Blinders, 8 x Mole Richardson 2K Mole Beams, 4 x Custom Clip Light Fixtures, 4 x Reel EFX DF 50s, 4 x Look Solutions Unique Haze Machines
