I just finished a few articles about the latest Pussycat Dolls tour, and Scott Warner’s work on the tour. Scott is using a ton of Robe gear – from the article at TPI Mag:
Warner first used Robe fixtures on a PCD show in St Petersburg, Russia last year.
With the timing of Doll Domination, he was keen to try out Robe’s new Digital Series, so added 6 DigitalSpot 7000DTs, 36 REDWash 3.192 LED wash lights and 12 Robe REDBlinder 2.96s to the spec — all of which were newly purchased by HSL for the tour. The rig also includes 60 Robe ColorSpot and ColorWash 2500E ATs.
The 90 minute PCD performance is a highly visual, all-action extravaganza encompassing the genres of pop, hip-hop and cabaret, for which Warner’s light show needed plenty of multiple-choice options.
His creative scope has to cover all avenues and keep the new looks coming and the excitement and anticipation pumping right to the final chords. He achieves all this with a relatively expediently sized rig in terms of fixtures.
The lights are distributed all across the rig. This features an innovative trussing design based on 4 Octopods – two static underneath the front truss and two moving ones over-stage left and right, plus a 4.5 metre circular truss stage centre, and a smaller semi circular truss. In the upstage left and right corners are two 20ft runs of SwingWing truss, flown diagonally, and there’s also a back truss running the full width of the stage.
