Adlib is dedicated to Carly Rae Jepsen
Adlib supplied audio and lighting production for the UK dates of Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen’s ongoing “Dedicated” world tour. In addition, Adlib supplied a lighting and audio control package for the European leg. Production Manager and FOH engineer Zach Snyder had not worked with Adlib before but was recommended to the Liverpool-based production specialist by their tour director, Tony Marino. He specified an Avid S6L 24d for the FOH console and a DiGiCo SD12 for monitors which was run by Spencer Jones. Lighting designer Charles Ford chose a grandMA2 light as his control desk of choice, for its power, flexibility and compatibility as an ‘industry standard’ workhorse piece of kit. For the two UK shows at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse and London’s Brixton Academy, Adlib supplied an L-Acoustics K2 and KS28 system. Charles’ elegant and theatrical styled lighting design for the larger shows included 16 x Ayrton Khamsin LED profiles with which he was very impressed, combined with 12 x Robe MegaPointes, another of his favourite fixtures for eye catching beam work and effects. His wash luminaire of choice was the Claypaky B-Eye K20, and also on the rig from Adlib were GLP Impression X4 Bar 20s plus ChromaQ ColorForce LED 48 and 72 battens for up lighting the white set risers and back cloth. The lighting detail was completed with hazers and a mirror ball.
