Clay Paky Sharpy light fixtures on the Clockwork Angels tourRush lighting director Howard Ungerleider was recently interviewed by Live Design Magazine where he spoke a little about the band's use of Clay Paky Sharpy light fixtures on the band's recently-completed Clockwork Angels tour:

... "We had 55 Sharpys on the tour for the duration," says Howard Ungerleider, lighting designer for Rush. "Sharpys are one of the most versatile and exciting lighting fixtures I've used in a while. I can really get a lot of looks out of them. I definitely work them without over-using them." ...

The article goes on to describe how the fixtures were used in a few specific songs from the band's set including Red Sector A, The Body Electric, The Pass and The Wreckers. You can check out the entire article online at this link.

I realise there are fans out there who would prefer to see a Rush show without the videos or lightshow. I am definitely NOT in that category. I thought the lights for the CA tour were fantastic.
#4 - funny.

I liked the lighting better when I saw them at the Coff-in in September of 1968.

Three times the article mentions a US tour. HUH! guess the gigs I saw in Toronto and Hamilton were a figment of my imagination.

created a Jacob's Ladder effect and a barricade for "The Pass" hmmm interesting choice of words there.

Great lighting on the tour!

KC was a month ago? You mean they've had a month off! LOL. I think they need and deserve a whole lot more time off. If they just issued CA live and did nothing else, I'd be happy.
