Elation Professional’s ACL 360 Bar™ color-changing LED battens are being used by lighting designer Andy Knighton to add a flare of lighting dynamism to the Rascal Flatts “Rhythms & Roots” tour, a post-Vegas residency outing that has the country music trio on the road in the U.S. until mid-October.
“The ACL 360 Bars are used as a ‘spice’ for this show to enhance an otherwise typical video background,” says Knighton, who has been designing the lighting for Rascal Flatts since 2003. “We were attracted to them due to their affordability, weight, and versatility. The overall visual concept was to be strategic and tasteful and not just bang away all night. They are used in every song but never do we repeat a feature.”

Once upon a time, television production trucks were like cruise ships on wheels. They pulled into a sporting event, swaggering with self-importance; fifty feet of gleaming metal pulled behind a pavement-buckling Peterbilt that belched diesel smoke and deafened every innocent bystander within a mile’s radius.

Inside one these lustrous fifty-foot beasts, you might find a dozen or more crew members, all working away happily, while the truck sucked down power like a thirsty brontosaurus.
