Alter Bridge - ‘Walk The Sky’ U.S. Tour (2020)

American rock band Alter Bridge wrapped up a 4-week tour of U.S. cities in late February with lighting designer Joshua Light directing a Bandit Lites-supplied lighting system that included Elation’s Smarty Hybrid moving head.


Light adopted key aspects of a design created by the late Joe Eager for the band’s 2019 European tour, a large 5-truck show that included profile and beam fixtures. For the US tour’s trimmed setup however, Light needed a more compact package and combining fixture types in a single hybrid fixture was the way to go.


Working from four 10-foot truss towers with additional Smartys on the floor across the backline and on the drum riser, Light utilized the fixture’s multiple modes with transitions between gobos, beams or frost wash looks to keep the looks dynamic. “There were a couple of moments where I went from backlight with the frost in to flipping over to a gobo with clean focus, or switched from gobo breakups to beam looks,” he says.


The Smarty Hybrid fixtures worked in the rig with other moving head effects, LED washlights, and hybrid strobes. Alter Bridge has plans to take the same rig back out on the road in May with European dates following that.
