Jason Aldean’s current 34-city tour features a Chris Lisle-designed lightshow with 64 Rogue RH1 Hybrids from CHAUVET Professional.

The 330-watt fixtures are hung on eight truss fingers that radiate at different angles from the middle of the stage out to the audience. From this position, the spot/wash/beam fixtures fill a variety of roles, from creating specials and cross lighting to down lighting and aerial effects over the audience. Although the tour rig’s massive video displays create big looks, the Rogue Hybrid fixtures, with their generous output, are relied on to reflect varying moods during the concert by covering the stage in different colors.

“This year, we’re relying heavily on video, which has made the brightness of the Rogues critically important to us,” said Keith Hoagland, the tour’s lighting director. “We have large 4K video walls, and needless to say their output is significant.  The Rogues that we position above the band and to the side of the stage more than hold their own with the video walls. Thanks to their brightness, we can see their beam angles and gobo patterns not just on the deck, but in the air as video pounds the audience.”

The versatility of the Rogue RH1 Hybrid and its wide zoom range have also been important, allowing the rig to be adjusted as the tour moves back and forth between arenas and amphitheaters.
