Luke Bryan Tour Uses PixelFLEX LED Curtain Video Wall to Enhance Show Visuals While Making Life Easier for Road Crew

Having already used PixelFLEX’s unique flexible and lightweight LED Curtain video wall system on tour since 2011, Luke Bryan is featuring a 60′ x 40′ 100mm Curtain with another 40′ x 30′ 18mm Curtain during his headlining tour in 2013 to provide an enhanced video experience for concert-goers. Both Curtain systems are custom-made by PixelFLEX.

Easy to operate and set up – videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection – PixelFLEX LED Curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. Given the high-quality video and visual effects the solution has produced for Bryan’s production team during previous tours, the artist’s production manager is confident that expanding the use of the Curtain for the 2013 tour will offer fans an even better live show experience with minimal impact on the road crew.

“The PixelFLEX solution is a great product for a number of reasons,” said Pete Healey, production manager and front-of-house mixer. “It’s durable, flexible and lightweight, which makes it easy to set up, tear down and pack on the truck in a compact fashion. At the end of the night, we bring the truss in and the Curtain folds right into a case, which then gets stacked three high in the truck.”

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED Curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display.

“The flexibility of the Curtain gives us creative freedom in how we use it in different venues,” Healey continued. “As a support act last year, we didn’t have access to all of the headliner’s video product. So, we wrapped the PixelFLEX system around cylinders to make sure that fans sitting side of stage or upstage had a view of the show’s visual elements. We couldn’t have done that with a hard product.”

An industry veteran, Healey believes that production should be invisible – the main focus needs to be on the performer. Still, he understands that production plays a vital role in the concert experience for fans.

“With our headline tour this year, we are using the PixelFLEX Curtain in a way that provides a big ‘WOW’ factor for our audience,” Healey remarked. “Whereas most acts use a 60′ x 40′ stardrop on tour, we’ve decided to use PixelFLEX’s 100mm Curtain with a lo-res backdrop and hi-res big screen in front. At first, it might look like another stardrop, but once we start mapping our content through it the difference will be drastic.”
