Welcome to AyrtonLIVE 14!

This issue of AyrtonLIVE gives a snapshot of our global reach with stories coming from the US, Australia, France, Norway, Spain and the Canary Islands, as well as a couple of world tours.

Cat Strom sends us two stories from Australia with tours from The Rubens and Parkway Drive looking resplendent with Mistral-S, Bora-S and Ghibli.

Spain turns up the heat for their Christmas festivities in the Canary Islands and goes for all out colour with Ghibli on their top musicals.

Ghibli features once again, this time alongside Mistral on Jason Isbell’s Ryman Residency, while Kimarius Abrahamsen parties in Norway with MagicBlade-FX on Cezinando’s tour.

There were more global travels for some of our MagicPanel-FX and MagicDot-R fixtures on two world tours from Keith Urban and Michael Bublé. Both very different in nature, yet each choosing to use our products to create their defining looks.

Finally, we return to France with SoundLightUP’s brilliant review of French pop star Calogero’s tour and an interview with young lighting designer, Vincent Lérisson.

Enjoy the read!
