10 Out Of 10 has been working alongside Flux Rig & Light to supply Briteq BT-Vintage lights for the Midge Ure 1980 Vienna Visage Tour.
The tour included classic Visage tracks in the first section, followed by the entire Ultravox Vienna Album then concluding with a four-song encore of fan favourites.
“My brief was to supply theatrical type lighting with 3 distinct looks for each section.” says Rik Foreman from Flux Rig & Light. “I wanted a statement fixture that had a lot of presence on stage. The shape, size and overall look of the vintages fit the bill perfectly.
“I also wanted to utilise the fact that you could use traditional tungsten and LED colour mixing in a single fixture. The Vintages were positioned around the stage on stands and set at different heights to create an asymmetric look. The tungsten lamps were used heavily during the Visage section when the lighting was a little more subdued, the colours were warmer and the looks were intended to be a little more basic.
“The LEDs came in more during the Vienna album section, where the palette changed to more stark whites and blues and the overall programming of the show was increased and dynamic.”
On working with 10 Out Of 10 as a hire partner, Rik comments: “In all the fixtures were a huge success and really complemented the show. The team were happy with their inclusion and they gained a lot of compliments from people who saw the production. 10 Out Of 10 were a joy to deal with and made sure the hire ran smoothly and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other LDs or productions in the future.”
