LIGHTING DESIGNER, director and operator Roland Greil says he needed a haze machine capable of dealing with outdoor conditions for Phil Collins’s Not Dead Yet tour.
The effect, which he says highlights the drama of the lighting, is notoriously difficult to manage in windy conditions so he chose theONE, a fog and haze unit by Canada-based supplier MDG, which allows the operator to adjust the atmospheric flow.
This was deployed at venues and events including The Royal Albert Hall (cap. 5,300) and London’s British Summer Time (65,000) in Hyde Park with Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena (10,000) and Sheffield’s FlyDSA Arena (13,500) coming up.
“MDG’s theONE has proved versatile enough to cope with all of these, providing good haze which accentuated the beams of light to best advantage and highlighted the variety of looks on this design,” says Greil.
