NASHVILLE, TN – Legendary performer Tom Jones kicked off his international tour with 16 North American performances lit by Bandit Lites. The “What’s New, Pussy Cat?” and “She’s a Lady” performed two shows at the Hollywood Bowl before making his way to Nashville, Texas, Florida, New York, Charleston and Atlantic City.
The tour relaunched a previous production design from Mark Cunniffe as well as programming from Tim Fawkes. Bandit Lites provided a floor package comprised of Clay Paky B-EYE K20 fixtures and a grandMA 2 console for control.
“The Clay Paky Eye K20 unit has quite a bit of versatility within itself that makes this a great unit to use as a floor light,” explained LD Keith Hoagland. “We have 29 of these doing just that: they are part of a beautifully designed floor package that has so many looks for this show.”
Jones’s Ages and Stages Tour is a nostalgic turn through all his hits, and for Bandit Lites, it’s a return to supporting the legend. Bandit illuminated the Welsh star for many years, beginning in the 1980s.
“Matt King has done a great job of prep and direction,” finished Hoagland. “Jemma has been an amazing asset to making this system work every day for our performances.”
Following the Atlantic City performance, Jones will head over to Europe, where the tour extends into August. Check out his full list of tour dates at www.TomJones.com.
