Selena Gomez Owns The Night With Bandit

selena-gomez-2011.jpgGlobal sensation Selena Gomez has been tearing up the planet with her current We Own the Night World Tour. Show Designer Seth Jackson and Lighting Designer Brian Jenkins called upon Michael Golden at Bandit Lites to provide illumination services for this sold out endeavor. Tour manager Mark Holloway, production manager Javier Alcaraz and stage manager Lenny Rogers work seamlessly with Bandit Lites each night to deliver a high-energy show. The crowd is on its feet from the first note until house lights come on.

Jackson and Jenkins worked together on the lighting design and have come up with an exciting combination of lighting and video looks that transform the stage into a magical environment. Utilizing MAC 2000 Spots, VL 2500 Spots, GRN Battens and the new GLP Volkslicht, the stage is aglow with maximum color and intensity. The LED based Volkslichts and the GRN Battens provide and unbelievably rich and bright base wash over the entire acting area. The hard edge lights are used in just the manner they were intended, to knife through the overall washes. Add a host of Atomic Strobes with color changers and video panels scattered about a multi-level stage and Selena has a virtual playground that captures the eye at all times. Jenkins console of choice is the Grand MA, and he makes it work to its limits every evening.

The 19-year-old former Disney star is one of the biggest show business sensations on earth. She has succeeded at the highest levels in film, television and music. Selena just hosted the European MTV Music Awards in Dublin and drew rave reviews. Though very young, Gomez is already known as a philanthropist for her constant and continued giving back through a number of charity endeavors.

Bandit is proud to be involved with such an incredible talent and to be working with Seth Jackson and Brian Jenkins on this tour. Everyone looks forward to a bright future for this amazing young lady.
