Jason Aldean Takes Clay Paky Sharpys Along on his Night Train Tour

Clay Paky Sharpys are lighting up country singer Jason Aldean on the Night Train Tour, a musical powerhouse of a show also featuring Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett with location specific appearances by Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, and Kelly Clarkson.

Aldean is a double-Platinum recording artist who has had nine singles reach #1 on the Hot Country Songs charts. Bandit Lites Inc. is providing him with 24 Sharpys on the tour along with a pair of grandMA2 lighting consoles.

“The show design by Mike Swinford incorporates a lot of automation,” notes Bandit Lites client rep Michael Golden. “Video panels carry the fixtures.”

Lighting designer and programmer Aaron Swetland calls the show “very dynamic” with “a lot of elements and layers. The automated video screens move in all directions with 24 axes of movement.”

Swetland says the Night Train Tour is the fourth tour on which he’s used Sharpys. “I love that light,” he says. “They have a very narrow beam and great distance. I have them spread out to maximize the effect, and they fill the palette well. It’s great when they work together delivering nice beam angles and great looks.”

According to the lighting designer, a number of stadium shows are coming up this spring, and he plans to add 88 Sharpy fixtures to supplement his inventory.

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, adds, “Mike and Aaron are a great design team and I’m glad the Sharpys are the right fixture for the show, indoor and outdoor.”
