DESIGN: “I have several plots as we’re doing different versions of shows: the 40th anniversary tour, the orchestra tour, and this summer the Juke Box Hero tour with Whitesnake and Jason Bonham. We’re not carrying gear on this one. I love having the ability to walk into a place and rent a couple dozen movers […] Read More...

TOUR: First North American leg, Jan 18- Feb 24; Australia, UK, Europe, more North America through 2018. DESIGN: “A show is about a mood. It changes every time. It is interesting to work with technology these years because we have super graphic lights, mood lights, video panels, etc. My approach is larger than lights. Depending on the project, I might be looking for something to be lit, like a set piece. Or I might use lighting to do arial looks. I like to define space. It all starts with what is my canvas.” Read More...

TOUR: Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band

DESIGN: “This is my 15th year as touring lighting director/programmer for Jeff Ravitz’s design for Ringo. My most important cues: light the audience, and light Ringo! The six other musicians are all stars as well, so they are also constantly in the light of their own lekos."

Tour: April-December: U.K., Canada, U.S., Europe.

Design: “It is all ‘big picture’ stuff. Other than my console, we are not carrying gear, so every night is a different show — it may be all par cans one night, moving lights the next or a mix of the two. I take a theatrical approach, trying to keep a consistent look for the Gipsys, lighting the stage of 11 musicians and highlighting vocals or a guitar break as needed. It’s not flash and trash.”
