Morpheus Lights is pleased to supply Ayrton Wildsun 500C automated LED washlights, plus additional specified gear for what legendary guitarist and innovator Tom Scholz characterized as BOSTON's last tour, “…at least till the end of the Mayan calendar anyway.” The tour kicked off on July 1st in Saint Augustine, Florida and will wrap up in Kansas City on September 8th.

Gregg Maltby, long time lighting designer for the band, says “I want to thank Morpheus for introducing me to the Wildsun 500C fixture. We used them to replace the 1KW halogen source moving heads that I'd specified for many years. I really like the Wildsun's warmer 4,000° Kelvin white LED! It gives me tremendous saturated colors and a pastel range that is breathtaking“. The Wildsun 500C is a compact 10,000 lumen RGBW automated washlight developed by French manufacturer AYRTON. They are exclusively distributed in the USA by Morpheus Lights.

Morpheus Lights C.O.O. Mark Fetto says “We're pleased that designers are coming to recognize the Wildsun 500C as a solid, roadworthy washlight that offers punch, quick motion and great color in a compact and energy efficient package.” Maltby agrees, saying, "The Wildsuns have excellent color rendering and great visual effects with their variable DMX light-engine mapping.”

“The Wildsun 500C's fit perfectly into Morpheus Lights' economically efficient tour system packaging.” Fetto continues, “Traveling in Morpheus FlipBoxâ„¢ truss the system deploys quickly with minimal labor and need of supervision. That's vital in today's touring reality.” The Morpheus Lights system on tour with BOSTON includes luminaires from: Ayrton, Chauvet, Clay Paky, Martin Professional, and Procan, power distribution by Motion Laboratories and Lex Products, data distribution by Doug Fleenor Design, and control by MA Lighting.
