CHANNEL Zero Unplugged Tour 2015 - Lighting for Rock 'n Roll.

 

  



"37 dimmable effect candles by City Theatrical, developed originally for Broadway and Concert Tours, hard to differentiate from the real ones because of the warm flame color and the authentic flicker."   - Set Designer LD Yves De Poorwe

 



 

The iconic Belgian band Channel Zero has had a taste of all rock ’n roll has to offer.  Moments of great success were followed by darker periods, the worst moment being the tragic loss of  their drummer Phil Baheux in August 2013. Nevertheless, the band found the strength to carry on, remaining, after 25 years, the number one in the Belgian rock scene.  At the end of October 2015, Channel Zero took off on a new adventure, taking them somewhere no other Belgian metal band had been before.  They decided to go “back to basics” with a complete “unplugged” album, followed by an impressive concert tour taking them to Belgium’s most important theaters, carrying along an equally impressive touring set. 

Belgian professional lighting distributor Luxillag teamed up with local production companies to provide impressive lighting for this epic tour.   The set needed to be intimate, and in order to create this effect they used 37 City Theatrical Candle Lite Unlimited™ dimmable electronic flicker candles.  Developed originally for Broadway and Concert Tours, these candles are hard to differentiate from the real ones because of the warm flame color and the authentic flicker.

The Incandescent candle stick is used on many Broadway shows and touring companies because of  its natural flicker and movement of a candle flame.  The candles bring extreme realism to any set. An LED version is also available when long battery life is imperative.
