Our friends at ER Productions were at it again this year, providing thelaserson the high profile MUSE “Resistance” World Tour. ER Productions were asked to design alaser display systemthat would fit in line with the theme of the Album “The Resistance”… What better way to do this than to place the Band in a 75 mirror 60ft wide 60ft high laser prison!
Show Tech ER Productions toured 10high powered laser systemsincluding 1 system ran entirely by MUSE front man Matt Bellamy. All systems were controlled using a combination ofPangolin Laser Control Systems, includingLD2000and theQM2000.NET hardware. 1 x 10wattwhitelight laserwas mounted in Matts Hydraulic Riser and produced aLaser Beamthat Matt thendirected into the audienceusing a diffraction mirror. This specific effect was used during the bands performance on “Uprising” one of the hit singles on the album. For the 1st time ever a British Touring company was able to use these laser effects in the USA after convincing the proper U.S authorities that ER Productions had the experience andsafety requirementsavailable to meet the US standards. ER Productions was praised for their acute interest in the safety of the audience and for their investment in using the Worlds best metering equipment proving thesafety of all laser effectsused. All laser were connected to an ER designed E-Stop systems ensuring quick shutdown.
