Mozarts™, Flares™ Rock USHER

108 of Solaris LED’s unique new Mozart lighting fixtures are featured in the spectacular show designed by Eric Wade of FOHShow LLC for the 2014-15 USHER UR Experience World Tour. Commenting on the diminutive RGB fixtures’ versatility and impressive intensity for their size, Wade says: “Mozarts absolutely rock. We’re using them for internal set lighting, behind panels on ladders and straight forward open as an effect type instrument. They’re extremely versatile, giving many different types of looks, and they’re extremely cost effective. I can have several hundred of these on a tour for the price of a handful of movers, so I really don't sacrifice much to get a large amount of them into my show. It's the only light I spec by the hundreds. It’s the perfect light!”

165 Solaris LED Linear Fixtures Light Up Jason Aldean

In their first significant use on a major tour, 165 Solaris LED 16x1 fixtures have been performing flawlessly on Jason Aldean’s 2014 Burn It Down tour.

“I chose Solaris 16X1’s because, based on my experience with the amazing Solaris Flare, I knew they would perform well for my needs,” says Mike Swinford, the show’s Lighting and Production Designer. “We use them to outline the overhead trusses and also to outline the T-shaped thrust. They’re performing very well and ride on the trusses everyday so they do not have to be handled at every show. As with the Flare product, I am really impressed by their high output, plus linear effects when used with the MA console driving them. The 16X1’s individual LED “pixel” control is a real plus”. Production personnel include Tour LD Keith Hoagland and Lighting Programmer Mark Butts. The Solaris LED product is supplied to the tour by VER.
