Welcome to AyrtonLIVE 15!

For those of you heading for LDI in Las Vegas, we have a little online reading for you to download before your flight!

In this issue of AyrtonLIVE we are proud to bring you features that show the breadth of capability of Ayrton fixtures as they illuminate everything from rock ‘n’ roll and EDM, to theatre and ballet.

One of the most talked about tours this year has to be that of Shawn Mendes and we cover Louis Oliver’s expansive use of Khamsin, Bora and Mistral-S on the road; there is colour from the Canary Islands and serenity from Boston Ballet. In May, the Eurovision Song Contest burst onto our screens again, with over 700 Ayrton fixtures playing key roles in Ronen Najar and Dakar Azulay’s lighting rig, while at the other end of the scale, Erik Anderson and Nick Whitehouse make the neat use of MagicDot-R a major feature of Billie Eilish’s visuals on her When We Fall Asleep tour.

Mistral and Diablo get rather devilish on Broadway and off-Broadway with Ken Posner, and French balladeer Daniel Guichard brings in the services of 18-year old lighting designer Alexis David who chose Mistral-TC for the veteran performer’s latest tour.

Finally Ghibli enters a State of Trance with The Art of Light in The Netherlands before we finish up with a spot of Amnesia in the south of France with, appropriately enough, DreamPanel-Twin.

We think this will keep you entertained on your flight and look forward to showing you our new Huracán Profile and Perseo Profile fixtures at LDI…and perhaps a little more!

Enjoy the read!
