For Jacob Sartorius’ 2018 tour, Lenny Sasso - who lit Sartorius’ first headlining shows two years ago - created a futuristic concept, using a collection of Chauvet Professional Épix Strip Tour and Rogue R1 FX-B fixtures, supplied by Squeek Lights.


Sasso arranged the linear fixtures in a matrix-like formation, filling the upstage area with light while creating a high-tech look. “I wanted to wrap the band in Épix Strips,” he says.“It all revolved around the placement of the risers in that diamond style, which was something that we had done on Jacob’s original tours. Wrapping the fixtures around the upstage side of the risers pulled it all together.”


A total of 32 Épix Strip Tour fixtures was used in the wrap-around design. Hung on eight 10’ vertical pipes and 12 8’ horizontal pipes, the Épix units displayed light as well as video content run from a laptop with Resolume software.


Also arranged on the pipe structure were eight Rogue R1 FX-B fixtures, each with five individually controlled moving heads. Adding extra color and depth to Sasso’s lightshow, as well as aerial effects, were six Rogue R1 Wash fixtures arranged across the deck near the risers.


Sasso credits his lighting director Sam Parker with adjusting his rig for different venues so it retained its look and feel.
