Robe for Vasco Rossi Live Kom 2019
Italian showman, superstar Vasco Rossi – Il Blasco – was back with another monumental Live Kom tour including six sold out nights at Milan’s San Siro stadium. Leading the creative production team was lighting designer Giovanni Pinna who chose to use over 340 Robe moving lights – 152 x MegaPointes, 122 x Spiiders and 72 x LEDBeam 150s – to assist in that huge visual impact! Video screens / content director and disguise server operator Marco Piva and disguise tech whizz Nicolas Di Fonzo worked directly for Giovanni who also collaborated closely with live camera director Peppe Romano from Except to create the WOW factors and aesthetic highs. The design was tailored to the San Siro venue as it hosted the most multiple shows. The large central LED screen was flanked by four massive surfaces – two a side – creating a 97-meter-wide stage.
The roof lighting was completely new, with an 18 x 8 meter grid providing the main over-stage lighting positions – upstage of the 4 x moving LED header pieces – with a 24 meter front truss, plus lighting ‘top pods’ stage left and right tucked in between the side screens. With this much LED in the environment, Giovanni needed super-bright light sources and that’s why he chose the Robe fixtures. Twenty-four of the MegaPointes and twelve of the Spiiders were working in conjunction with a BlackTrax remote follow system, highlighting the guitarists and bass player. ER Productions supplied lasers including LazerBlades and BB3s, all controlled by Giovanni’s grandMA2 full size console, plus five 15W units run separately by Harry Boyde using one of ER’s Pangolin Beyond systems.
