Lil Wayne's I AM Music World Tour Blazes With Effects.

lil-wayne-dragons.jpgLas Vegas – Vice President of Pyrotek Special Effects Inc., Lorenzo Cornacchia, worked alongside Production Designer Daunte Kenner and Production Manager Maceo Price to help create an explosive show for Lil Wayne's I Am Music World Tour. Kenner and Price collaborated with Cornacchia to integrate a series of effects for the tour. Cornacchia was introduced to Kenner during the 2007 BET awards, where Cornacchia designed a barrage of custom flame effects, including a flaming microphone stand for Lil Wayne's performance of Gossip. Cornacchia, who has worked on numerous occasions with Kenner, enjoys doing so because “He's innovative and brings fresh ideas to the table”. The Lil Wayne I Am Music World Tour consists of an array of various special effects. One of the custom effects designed for the tour resembles a gatling gun which acts as a flame thrower, shooting an explosive blaze of fire from the center of the mid stage. You know this effect is a huge hit as Wayne leaves the stage with a big smile on his face every night, commented Cornacchia. A total of twenty-two CO2 cryogenic systems were also designed to fill the stage during Wayne's closing act A Milli. Gary Bishop and Tristan Ford are the gas technicians and shooters for the tour. The effects list for the tour consists of;
