140 Solaris Mozarts Featured on Hall & Oates 2016 Tour

The Daryl Hall and John Oates 2016 tour kicked off this year at New York’s Madison Square Garden and will continue through the summer. Nashville based Morris, in collaboration with famed designer Jesper Luth, provided the production and lighting design. Featured in the design are 140 Solaris Mozart fixtures. “While these lights are small in scale, they make an incredible impact, encompassing both performers in light and creating a warm, asymmetrical backdrop for the show,” says Jessica Charlton of Morris.

Solaris Mozarts Highlight Mötley Crüe Drum Coaster

Featured on the current Mötley Crüe “final” world tour is Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” overhead drum kit “coaster”, highlighted by 24 Solaris LED Mozarts. The Mozarts, mounted on the underside of the drum riser, are the perfect eye candy to highlight Lee’s solos as he rolls high in the air on an elaborate “roller coaster” of truss.

A total redesign from previous tours, planning for the show began last February between Matt Mills, Robert Long, and Sooner Routhier. “We searched for a while for something to put under the drum riser,” explains tour Lighting Designer, Matt Mills. “We had several ideas, but when I saw the Mozarts at InfoComm in Orlando it was a simple decision. We bolted them to the underside of Tommy’s drum riser and use them for video pixel-mapping, controlled via wireless DMX sent to a receiver located with the drum kit.” Tommy Lee’s 11-minute Crüecifly has no onboard power; once he “takes off” a UPS backup battery runs everything.
