The iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden is packing arenas and wowing head banging crowds with its Legacy of the Beast European tour. Helping to bring its richly designed stage show to life is entertainment lighting from Signify.
The company's Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 beams reportedly provide both the heavy duty punch and the subtlety required by lighting designer Robert Coleman, from a searchlight that depicts war to illuminating a stunning cathedral and finally, Hell.
Coleman stated: "They are versatile and incredibly powerful, they've been hitting the back wall of the stadiums. Also, the combined colours from them have been stunning. I have particularly enjoyed the strobe, especially when blasting the audience."
The 38-date Legacy of the Beast European tour marks the band's 16th studio album and ends in London on 11th August.
Signify aims to be a leader in lighting for professionals and consumers and lighting for the Internet of Things. Their Philips products, Interact connected lighting systems and data-enabled services, hope to deliver business value and transform life in homes, buildings and public spaces.
