Logic Systems creates versatile 3‐artist rig at Live Nation Drive‐In with CHAUVET Professional
Welcome to Live From The Drive‐In, a three night, three‐artists series of shows from Live Nation’s first foray into the world of drive‐in concerts at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis. Navigating his way through this uncharted territory was Chip Self, owner of Logic Systems, which provided audio, video and lighting for the three‐night series of shows. According to Self, “The site was so large, that even a relatively large stage (Stageline SAM550) seemed small in context,” he said. “We spread Maverick MK1 Spots on the deck, all the way across the width of the stage and on both work wings (over 100’). The goal was to go as wide as possible and let the beams go beyond the stage roof into the sky, in an effort to make the stage feel larger.” Self, who designed and ran the show for El Monstero (Paisley and Nelly had their own lighting designers) put together the entire rig and managed the project in addition to running FOH for Nelly. He specified a collection of fixtures that included 12 Maverick MK1 Spot and 14 Rogue R2 Wash units from CHAUVET Professional for the three‐day series rig. Flown on the mid‐stage and upstage trusses, the Rogue units were the principal wash fixtures for all three headliners.
