grandMA2 tours with Red Hot Chili Peppers: Long term partners
Responsible for the design on their recent word tour, “The Getaway”, is again Scott Holthaus, long term LD, programmer and production designer for the band and a loyal user of MA Lighting consoles.
Holthaus commented: ”We have now used grandMA for twenty years! As this is the most ambitious project I have come up with to date, I saw no reason to change from what has worked so well. Therefore we voted again to use MA - in this case two grandMA2 full-size.” Leif Dixon is working alongside Scott as programmer.
“It was my intention to create a giant video kinetic sculpture that includes, involves and encompasses the audience”, continued Holthaus. “I feel this is the coolest traveling show out at this time … as do most who have seen it fly!”
