Aerosmith take grandMA to Dubai

31 July 2007

Dubai - Aerosmith played Dubai's Exiles Rugby Club recently as part of their 2007 World Tour. Production Technology LLC (Protec), a Dubai based rental company furnished and installed the show that was witnessed by a crowd of nearly 16,000. For control two grandMA full-size were used.

The lighting rig included 12 x Clay Paky Alpha Spot 1200 HPE, 18 x Clay Paky Alpha Wash 1200 and 168 x Par Cans. They were used to light the 18m x 16m stage with 16m x 11m wings.

Rick Wade, Protec's operations director, said, "I didn't receive a single complaint about the kit we provided. The Aerosmith crew was extremely happy with the venue, set-up, and of course the turn-out, which was very encouraging.

MA Lighting International recently opened its own office, MA Lighting Middle East India, in Dubai. "The idea of our global network is to getting even closer to the market", comments Michael Althaus, managing director of MA Lighting International. "We are following our professional user-centric approach and as a partner we speak the language of the users and listen attentively to their needs."
