USA – Kelly Clarkson and many other A-list acts never looked so good. 2019 Billboard Music Awards’ lighting designer Jon Kusner specified 140 Solaris Flares and 58 Solaris Flare LR Linears for a stunning visual display, worthy of one of music’s most important nights of the year. The show broadcast last month on NBC, live from the Las Vegas MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“Flare LR linear fixtures made up a heavy part of our side walls in the performance stages,” says Kusner. “The Flare family of products – Flare, Flare Jr and LRs – in my mind has cracked the code. We also got some new Flare Rayzrs from Tony Ward at PRG to use offstage and we’re excited about having Flare performance in this new ultra-thin 'blade' format. Flares are the ideal LED product, and to find Flare technology in a smaller, discreet shape is a total plus.”

“Solaris Flares have become a staple in our inventory,” says Tony Ward of PRG. “Whether for concert tours, special events, or TV shows, Flares have become the preferred fixed-focus LED Wash product for many of our clients. Demand continues to grow for these fixtures, and the multiple fixture sizes and types give our clients better options to fit into new and creative lighting and scenic spaces. We can’t keep enough of them; they’re always busy, making the return on our investment in Flares really outstanding.”

Jon Kusner is an award-winning LD whose many credits include iHeartRadio Music Awards, Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, American Music Awards, The Academy Awards, Country Music Awards and more!
