Justin Kitchenman turns to Elation for Luke Bryan tour
Justin Kitchenman of Align Design Group is using some Elation lights on country musician Luke Bryan’s “Proud To Be Right Here” tour scheduled through October 16 with 35+ shows.
Kitchenman, who has been designing for Bryan for a decade, had a design in place from last summer’s cancelled tour, a show he thought he’d never see realized. When the decision was made to pick up from where they left off in 2020, however, the design was back on the table.
The design features automated lighting pods full of Elation ACL 360i fixtures, the designer’s sixth year using the compact single-beam RGBW moving effects. The pods fill the space in concentrated beams of color and can be maneuvered to create a variety of looks. Kitchenman, who is out with the tour as lighting director and also serves as production designer, uses 72 ACL 360i’s along with 8 DTW Blinder 700 IP 4-lites and 14 DTW Blinder 350 IP 2-lites.
He uses the DTW Blinder 700 IP and DTW Blinder 350 IP fixtures for audience lighting. Additional blinders are located throughout the rig, which he often uses as a complementary twinkle effect. Nashville-based production provider Elite Multimedia Productions has worked with Luke Bryan from the start of his career and is supplying the lighting and LED video technology for the run.
