The grandMA Helps Fleetwood Mac Get “Unleashed” For Its New Tour

FleetwoodFleetwood Mac is starting its “Unleashed” greatest hits tour with lighting design by Paul “Arlo” Guthrie. Arlo chose a pair of full-size grandMAs for lighting and video control. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of the grandMA in North America.

The band commenced its tour of the US and Canada in Pittsburgh on March 1. It will continue to play dates through the summer.

“Arlo and I programmed the whole show during two weeks in Los Angeles,” notes Axis deBruyn, the tour’s lighting director who himself is a “big fan” of the grandMA. So much so in fact, he own’s one himself! “The design of the show is fairly simple with lots of video. Two PRG Mbox Extreme Media Servers feed custom content to 42 Martin LC Panels mounted into light boxes.”

Among the lights controlled by the grandMAs are 120 custom Barco O-lite PAR cans, six DL3s, five Bad Boys, eight VARI*LITE 3000 spots, eight VARI*LITE 1000TS spots, 14 VARI*LITE VL3500 washes, eight VARI*LITE VL500 washes, and 16 Altman Mini Strips.

Guthrie comes to the grandMA having used other desks in the past. “He’s very happy with it,” deBruyn reports. “He especially likes the way it handles media servers more than any other console he’s used.”

“It is a pleasure watching Arlo use the grandMA through his programmer Axis deBruyn. They have tapped the power of the grandMA and the show has really benefited from the sophisticated lighting & video,” comments A.C.T Lighting President and CEO, Bob Gordon.
