Chris Young Hits the Road with Ayrton Ghibli Fixtures on his headlining “Raised On Country World Tour 2019”

Multi-Platinum entertainer Chris Young kicked off his headlining “Raised On Country World Tour 2019” on May 16 in Georgia with over 45 dates across the US, wrapping in November. Ayrton Ghibli LED spot luminaires with framing shutters fill out the rig for the slate of arena and amphitheater shows coast to coast.

The design of the show is based on a W-shaped videowall with four individually moving panels. Chevron-shaped lighting trusses increase in size moving upstage to downstage; six individually moving light pods are located between the downstage and midstage truss.

Lighting Designer Chris Lisle has positioned 36 Ghiblis among the three midstage and upstage trusses.  He selected them after staging a fixture shootout before the tour.  “We were super happy with the output and parameters of the Ghiblis,” he reports.  “They are the punchiest and brightest LED fixtures I have ever seen.”

Bandit Lites is supplying the Ghiblis for the run of the tour.  “The Bandit prep was top notch and their crew is amazing,” Lisle says. “We are extremely happy with the Ghiblis – their intensity, color range, feature set and more.  They are definitely the workhorse of this tour!”

“Chris Lisle has always trusted ACT products and has used many of our new fixtures on new tours. We couldn’t be happier that he has trusted us yet again with a new product in the ACT portfolio,” comments Doug Mekanik, ACT’s Southeast Regional Sales.  “Ayrton Ghibli is a true workhorse in the Ayrton Product Portfolio. With the added inventory in Bandit’s rental stock, the flexibility for future tours is wide open.”

Mike Stanley is the Production Manager/Lighting Director for the tour; Brian Jenkins programmed the show.
