GRiZ’s inspiration for the set was to create a completely new experience to ensure that fans would get a show never seen before. The asymmetrical design included 90 LED Tiles and 60 LightSlices. “Grant (GRiZ) loves the asymmetrical design, as it is not the norm. He is tired of the typical designs with a big video wall and a bunch of light,” Production Manager and Lighting Designer, Ian Davis explains. “He wants his audience to enjoy new and creative things…a work of art, not just a concert.”

The GRiZMAS II show features LMG’s 18MM LED tiles and 12MM LED LightSlices. “The 18MM video “V’s” added a lot of depth to the stage and provided a unique experience no matter where the audience was standing,” Davis explains. “One of the primary fixtures to creating the overall look of the design was the LightSlice, which is actually a two pixel wide video tile. The ability to hang these any way you can think of really made this design possible.”

To achieve the dynamic look for GRIZMAS II, LMG Touring provided a variety of light fixtures. “The Sharpys are fast moving and pack a serious punch that can stand up next to the video on the rig. The vipers, are also a fast fixture with a great gobo engine able to add the texture to the rig that we were looking for,” said Davis. “The Mac Auras were laid out in a grid above Grant (GRIZ) allowing us to create a tunnel of light and really highlight GRIZ appropriately throughout the show. The GrandMA console was the key to putting this rig into action…the speed that you can create these looks is vital asset to every show that we create.”
