For Phish’s MSG Bakers Dozen and North American Summer Tour, TAIT manufactured an intricate lighting rig consisting of 60 Nav Hoists and 30 lighting trusses stocked with various different lights. Powered by TAIT Navigator, each lighting truss independently moved up/down and tilted vertically while maintaining follow spots on stage.
“After using a setup with fixed spotlights and a mechanically-manipulated multi-part LED screen [in 2016], Lighting Designer/Director Chris Kuroda and his team broke out an entirely different rig in 2017. They nixed the screens, and devised a new design that put smaller sections of the rig on individual sets of ropes with pulleys, allowing them to shift formations, create marionette-style dynamic paths, and more. The new lights have been a huge hit with fans, many of whom feel that this iteration of the rig is Phish’s best ever.” – Andrew O’Brien, Live For Live Music
