NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE –  Fans around the country are getting into the Christmas spirit with LeAnn Rimes, as the multi-platinum, two-time Grammy Award-winning singer takes her Today is Christmas tour across the United States. Bandit Lites is proud to be lighting the acclaimed vocalist, whose powerhouse vocals and infectious spirit brings joy to not only the audience, but to those spending the holiday season supporting the tour.

“It is one of my favorite times of the year; there is something magical about it, and being able to share it with my fans makes it all the more special,” shared Rimes.

Lighting designer and LD Steve Hoover utilizes Bandit Lites supplied Chauvet Freedom Pars in addition to the house systems, building each production to showcase and up light the stunning birch tree backdrop he’s accented with actual fresh cut birch tree branches, giving the stage a familiar but unique setting that evokes the holidays beyond just red and green.

“It’s kind of Christmassy- but more of a wintery scene, than strictly Christmas,” noted Hoover, “And then we do use red and green- yes.”

And while touring means trekking the country and being away from home, Hoover says that being a part of such a creative production and surrounded by the industry’s best, including Tour Manager Shamus Bacon, makes this run exceedingly special.

“LeAnn not only treats people so well and is so talented, but she radiates positivity,” he said. “If you’re on the bus, there’s probably a big bunch of people who aren’t on their phones and they’re laughing.”
