Elation Chorus Line and Cuepix on Happy Endings Tour
Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest bands in country music, and their 2018 “Happy Endings” tour played dates in North America, the UK, Ireland and Australia. Morris Light & Sound of Nashville, Tennessee, supplied the lighting for the tour, a large rig that included Elation Professional Chorus Line 16™ LED pixel bar luminaires used to line the mid-stage and upstage, as well as Cuepix Blinder WW2™ white light LED blinders in the overhead truss and on the back wall. Lighting design was by Travis Shirley. The Chorus Line 16 pixel bar houses sixteen 40W RGBW LEDs that allows for use on large stage performances and has enough punch to compete with highlumen lighting and bright LED video screens. David Haskell, President of Morris, commented, “The Chorus Line 16 has great performance with a good zoom function and the reliability is fantastic. The brightness of the LED is excellent and when viewed head on.” The fixture includes motorized zoom optics so it can be used to light set objects and cycs and a 220° tilt motor function. Audience lighting is an important element on many shows, especially country artists who often have a passion to connect with their audience. The Cuepix Blinder WW2 gives the classic look of the 2-lite but with a fraction of the power requirements and with power con in and out, the fixtures can be placed throughout a lighting rig without having to run separate 120v cables.
