grandMA2 tours with Red Hot Chili Peppers

Long term partners

When the Red Hot Chili Peppers play a show there is no one in the audience who can resist the dynamic of the four artists on stage. It is not only the still neck breaking energy that distinguishes this band from others, or their music that still has the beat, it is also their lighting design that was and currently is such an eye opener.

Responsible for the design on their recent word tour, “The Getaway”, is again Scott Holthaus, long term LD, programmer and production designer for the band and a loyal user of MA Lighting consoles.

Holthaus commented: ”We have now used grandMA for twenty years! As this is the most ambitious project I have come up with to date, I saw no reason to change from what has worked so well. Therefore we voted again to use MA - in this case two grandMA2 full-size.” Leif Dixon is working alongside Scott as programmer.

“It was my intention to create a giant video kinetic sculpture that includes, involves and encompasses the audience”, continued Holthaus. “I feel this is the coolest traveling show out at this time … as do most who have seen it fly!”

Premier Global Production provided the lighting equipment, TAIT the stage structure. A.C.T Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting products in the USA and Canada.
