Black Sabbath returns to stages worldwide with grandMA2

Heavy metal icon Black Sabbath continues its Reunion Tour in Latin America, Europe and the UK with a grandMA2 light console. The tour celebrates the band’s reunion last year and supports their album “13” the first with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978. Baz Halpin is the tour’s lighting designer and Michael Keller, lighting programmer.

Keller selected the grandMA2 for the tour since he’s most comfortable programming that platform. “We’re carrying the grandMA2 light with us now, but you can find grandMA2 in most places. grandMA2 does everything I need.”

Keller initially migrated to grandMA2 “for its networking” capabilities, he says. Since then he’s discovered that “it’s a very friendly board. Once you get your profile set up it’s easy and powerful. There’s nothing you can’t do on it.” Upstaging provided the lighting for the tour.

A.C.T Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting in the US and Canada.
