Pacific Zoomspots provide 'specials' and key lighting for Lionel Ritchie

Gearhouse South Africa supplied all technical production - staging, rigging, lighting, video and audio - for Lionel Richie's hugely successful South African tour, with resources pooled from their Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban bases.

The GHSA lighting department was led by Rob Baker, a regular freelancer for the Cape Town branch, who worked with four touring crew and two lighting crew from the local branches.

They matched the plot sent by Richie's LD Joel Young which consisted of three 54ft long straight trusses, each loaded with seven bars of six PARs and following a clean, classical theatrical style with a blacked out stage, a basic PAR wash and moving light ‘specials' layered over the top and used for colour and movement.

14 Selecon Pacific Zoom Profiles were distributed between front and back trusses for band specials and key lighting.
