Beast of a light for Iron Maiden

    July 30, 2018

     

    Dallas, USA – The iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden is packing arenas and wowing head-banging crowds with its spectacular Legacy of the Beast European tour.  Helping to bring its richly-designed stage show to life is entertainment lighting from Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting. The company’s Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 beams provide both the heavy-duty punch and the subtlety required by lighting designer Robert Coleman, from a searchlight that depicts war to illuminating a stunning cathedral and finally, Hell.  “They are versatile and incredibly powerful - they’ve been hitting the back wall of the stadiums,” he said. “Also, the combined colors from them have been stunning. I have particularly enjoyed the strobe, especially when blasting the audience.” The 38-date Legacy of the Beast European tour marks the band’s 16th studio album and ends in London on August 11.
