The iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour presented by Capital One visited 12 cities from 28 November to 7 December. Select dates included Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, the Chainsmokers, and many more – with a spectacular lighting rig including many Solaris Flares.
“Love those Flares,” says the shows’ LD Tom Kenny. “A few years ago, TMB gave me some Flare demos to try out. Since then, after using Flares very successfully on many TV shows, including Kids’ Choice Awards, as well as the VMAs and Europe’s EMA award shows, I specified them for The Who Hits 50! tour.
“I always get wonderful compliments when I use Flares because of the fixture’s terrific colour and strobe effects. I was introduced to the Linear Flares last year and eagerly used them on this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival, and then on the Jingle Ball tour. Both of those events have the best of the best programmers, including the folks that work with me: Mike Appel, Tiffany Spicer-Keyes, Jason Baeri, Andrew GIF, and Joel Young on Jingle Ball.”
Kenny adds, “Everyone comments on the Flare’s brightness and the quick action. I’ve been very fortunate to be offered all the newest and coolest products to try, and Flares blow everything away by far.”
At LDI 2016, TMB debuted Solaris’ revolutionary Q+ Driver Technology, which made the classic rectangular 96-LED Flare even brighter, with a new Theatre Mode that virtually eliminates fan noise. lso at LDI 2016 TMB introduced the new Flare Q+ LR, a 108-LED linear version. At PLASA London 2017, TMB introduced the newest member of the Flare family, the Flare Q+ Rayzr.
