    Carrie Underwood gets Blown Away by Peter Morse & Bandit Lites

    NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - Bandit Lites is back on the road with Grammy award-winner Carrie Underwood for her Blown Away Tour, a massive production that is shaping up to be her biggest tour yet. After a wildly successful 2012, the tour has been expanded into 2013 for additional dates in the U.S. and Canada.

    With the second leg of the North American tour kicking off February 13 in Colorado Springs, Carrie’s fans have come to anticipate a certain amount of showmanship during her concerts. Her previous Play On Tour was ranked in the top 25 tours of 2010 by Billboard magazine and in the top 20 of Pollstar.com.

    Critically acclaimed lighting designer Peter Morse, who has worked with acts such as Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson, brought his immense expertise and knowledge to the Blown Away Tour. Using the initial set renderings and script, Morse mirrored the shapes and movements to design a dynamic set, complete with trusses at varying angles.

    “They were quite radical,” said Morse of the rigging. “This was due to necessary clearance of the tracking video walls, as well as the desire to ‘amplify’ the multi-angular look of the set and LED panels. In the end, we had a rather dynamic static look to the rig, and the angles of light totally complemented the angles of the set.”

    With the varying angles from the truss, Morse was careful to stay clear of the tracking LED walls and other tracking set pieces while still providing coverage to front-of-house positions by utilizing VL3500 washes and VL3000 spots. Additionally, Clay Paky Sharpys accentuate the overall shapes and angles of the system, direct the eye to locations on the stage and add dramatically to the musical impact of the performance.
