The iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden has been packing arenas and wowing head-banging crowds with its spectacular Legacy of the Beast European tour, illuminated by Signify. The 38-date Legacy of the Beast European tour marks the band’s 16th studio album, and ended in London on August 11.
Entertainment lighting from Signify helped bring Iron Maiden’s richly-designed stage show to life. The company’s Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 beams provided both the heavy-duty punch and the subtlety required by lighting designer Robert Coleman, from a searchlight that depicts war to illuminating a stunning cathedral and finally, Hell.
“They are versatile and incredibly powerful; they’ve been hitting the back wall of the stadiums,” Coleman says of the lighting products. “Also, the combined colours from them have been stunning. I have particularly enjoyed the strobe, especially when blasting the audience.”
