Flares Brighten iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball Tour 2017
USA – This holiday season rocked a little harder thanks to the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, presented by Capital One. The 12-city holiday concert tour ran from 28th November to 7th 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!”
