Vari-Lite VL10 luminaires shine brightly on Marc Anthony’s Pa’lla Voy Tour

Multi-award winning Latin music star Marc Anthony has returned to the stage with his Pa’lla Voy tour, taking in 26-dates across North America with an arsenal of VL10 BEAMWASH luminaires from Vari-Lite, a Signify (Euronext: LIGHT) entertainment lighting brand. 

The VL10 delivers speed, versatility and an impressive 28,000 lumens to Lighting Designer Travis Shirley’s bold stage design.

Shirley developed his concept around six vertical lighting arrays that provide the tools necessary to create effective and functional stage focuses. “When the drawings of the show were completed, it was time to start discussing fixture choices. Good friend and production guru Roly Garbalosa mentioned to me that our preferred vendor ProColor was looking at purchasing the new VL10s and asked me to take a look at them. How does the saying go? It was love at first sight,” said Travis Shirley.

The tour, which kicked off at San Antonio’s 18,500-capacity AT&T Center on August 27, celebrates 2019 album Opus and Anthony’s three-decade career. It has sold out arenas across the US, with fans eager to see him play live for the first time since early-2020. The three-time Grammy Award and six-time Latin Grammy Award winner’s compositions vary from slow and heart wrenching to fast and flamboyant, moving fans to tears in one moment and lifting them to their feet the next. Therefore, the show design had to be both engaging and extremely dynamic.

“I wanted to create a production that could not only accommodate his talented band, but also offer the flares of Latin salsa,” reveals Shirley. “I knew that we needed some sort of modern, yet classic, approach to an orchestra set up, thus the multi-tiered stage design. From there I looked at unique and creative ways to not only light the talent, but also provide the audience with lighting design appropriate for the genre.” 

The award-winning LD, who is known for his innovative approach to lighting and show design, worked closely with Ian Berkman and the programming team at Visual Edge to realise the final design.
