The glamourous show designed by Rob Sinclair provided some dazzling choreography and lots of special effects. The set included giant video screens, a glittering gold stage and a catwalk style runway leading to a second stage.
A zactrack auto follow system was used to precisely cover all movements of the Australian singer. 60 moving lights focused the star from every direction for stunning lighting effects while being immersed in a shower of rainbow confetti. During quieter scenes zactrack was used only with a single light for a perfect spotlight effect.
Lighting designer on tour was Ali Pike. Programming was done by Ben Cash and his team from Flare Lighting Ltd. The zactrack get-in was assisted by Jonty Rivers, JT Rivers Technical Services and Aaron Veness, product specialist of our UK distributor Ambersphere Ltd.
