Red Hot Chili Peppers surprised the world on September 1, 2016. At The Getaway tour in Budapest (Hungary), they used the largest system of kinetic lighting.
The implementation of a large-scale idea
Scott Holthaus used this idea of a stage design thanks to his wife Ghana. She found a video of the German company creating kinetic lighting system. Inspired, Holthaus turned to Tait Towers, to help his vision become reality.
- More than 800 TAIT Nano winches help to move 1,200 lighting devices in a massive structure.
- The management was provided by Tait Navigator.r.
Currently, the structure continues to amaze spectators by going up and dipping over the crowd in Chili Pepper`s North America tour. The premiered of the tour took place on January 5th in San Antonio, Texas.
Holthaus collaborated with Leif Dixon, a lighting programmer and together they recreated the design details.
