Clay Paky B-EYEs light up New Miranda Lambert tour

Country superstar Miranda Lambert is back on tour with Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K20s lighting the way.

Miranda Lambert’s “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars” tour reprises the name of her first headlining tour in 2010. It follows her “Certified Platinum” tour earlier this year and features an all-female line-up.

“This is a 13-city tour playing a lot of the markets that Miranda hasn’t been able to hit in recent years,” notes Nashville-based production designer Chris Lisle. “The design of the show is pretty straightforward with three overhead trusses and a floor lighting package. We also have some soft goods and scenic pieces that play heavily into the design. Miranda wanted to keep this one simple, so there are no video elements. She just wanted to go out, have fun musically and do a ‘bad ass light show.’”

Lisle selected 20 Clay Paky B-EYE K20s for the rig. Ten each are in midstage and upstage trusses alternating with spot and beam fixtures. “For some songs we use them as wash lights, on others we dial into the macros in Shapes mode to create some great visuals and effects since we have no video,” he explains. “We also used the lens rotation quite a bit. The B-EYEs work great and add a ton of visual impact to the show.”

Bandit Lites provided the equipment for the tour.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, added, “Mr. Lisle has been using our lights in a lot of creative ways and we are please that he continues to choose Clay Paky for his shows.”

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.
