Attendees at Live Design’s 2012 Concert Master Classes See Robert Juliat Followspots in Action at Springsteen Concert

Robert Juliat participated in Live Design’s 2012 Concert Master Classes at USC, Los Angeles last month showcasing its fixtures for those attending the immersive two-day event and accompanying attendees to a performance of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, whose tour rig includes Robert Juliat Manon and Topaze followspots.

The Concert Master Classes by Live Design annually brings together the touring industry’s top designers to discuss lighting and projection design challenges for the world of concerts. Award-winning lighting designer Jeff Ravitz, creative consultant to the classes, chaired an overview session on concert lighting design and gave a very personal perspective on how he lit Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball Tour in another session. Other panelists included Steve Cohen, Marc Janowitz, Steve Lieberman, Anne Militello and Seth Jackson.

Robert Juliat’s Fred Lindauer and Alan Keen were on hand for up-close-and-personal talks with attendees during the Manufacturers’ Showcase. They also highlighted the real-world application of three Manon and eight Topaze followspots for the Springsteen concert at the Honda Center in nearby Anaheim.

“Prior to the show attendees were treated to a behind-the-lighting-scenes tour by production lighting director Todd Ricci and programmer Jason Badger, which was very informative,” says Lindauer. “The lighting rig for the tour is supplied by Morpheus Lights; our Manon and Topaze fixtures are all specially configured for the tour. In addition, four Robert Juliat Lancelot followspots are employed when Springsteen plays stadium dates.”

Robert Juliat’s presence at the Concert Master Classes couldn’t have been more high profile, he notes. “The Manufacturers’ Showcase and the excursion to see Springsteen gave attendees a great idea of how Robert Juliat lighting works in the concert environment,” Lindauer concludes.
