Green Lighting for Concert Touring

Posted on Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Over the last decade, stage lighting has taken some extreme curves and turns. What started as a weak source of light in questionable fixtures has emerged as a most viable source of light with new fixtures emerging at a rapid pace. LED lighting has become quite the buzzword with touring productions, bands and management, and is strongly associated with green lighting or environmentally friendly lighting.

Recently we asked a select few from our industry to give us their opinions on the current state of green lighting for the touring sector, including Ethan Weber, an industry veteran and lighting director for U2’s 360 tour, Steven Douglas, lighting designer/director for the Killers, and Chris Ewington, manufacturer and designer of i-Pix LED fixtures.
