LINZ, Austria — LD Lui Helmig specified 130 Robe moving lights as the main work-horses of the rig for Die Ärzte’s two recent stadium shows. Helmig arranged the fixtures — a mix of ColorSpot and ColorWash 1200E ATs and ColorSpot and Wash 2500E ATs — across 9 finger trusses above the stage and on a front truss. On the floor were 12 ColorWash 2500E ATs and 6 ColorWash 1200E ATs, used for aerial beam work, effects and low level cross stage lighting, adding to the stage’s visual drama and dimension.

The design also incorporated GLEC video screens hung in between the trusses, and Helmig tried to make the stage as open and accessible for sight-lines all around the venue, including the far sides.

Helmig worked with Robe products on a regular basis since German distributors LMP first introduced him to the brand six years ago. He first saw ColorSpot 1200s in action in 2003 for a German tour by Finnish rockers, The Rasmus, lit by LD Mikko Enäkoski, and he went to LMP for a demo.

Since then, Robe has been his moving light brand of choice, crediting the fixtures for their creative options, reliability and performance. “The colors and the light output are excellent, and they are generally really fast moving, good quality units.”

Helmig operated the Linz shows using a Road Hog Full Boar console, with the media run from an ArKaos system. Satis & Fy from Dortmund supplied all lighting equipment.
