When the Manchester pop music group Take That toured with their eighth studio album Wonderland in the UK arenas, Tim Routledge Lighting Design once again undertook the task of designing the amazing spectacle.
For his design for Take That's Wonderland Live 2017 Tour, Tim Routledge utilized 80 SGM Q-7 flood, blind, strobes:
“We had 80 units on the spines that emanated around the stage into the audience and also in the inside drum for strobe effects inside the projection.”
The Q-7 is a low profile and compact RGBW multipurpose LED light with a high output of 28,000 lumens providing powerful effects, and this fixture has been deployed many times by the designer for tours such as Jeff Lynne’s ELO and Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour.
Wi Creations built the stage including automating five lifts, stairs, a huge evolving carousel, a magic carpet and 32 pieces of 12m roll drops for projection and creating constantly changing architecture to the show.
