The Super Bowl half-time performance has become one of the music industry’s highest profile events, with recent acts such as Prince, U2, Greenday, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, the Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson taking part. For this year’s Super Bowl XLIV halftime show, The Who lit up the skies of Miami Sunday, February 7 at Sun Life Stadium performing a wise array of their classic hits.
Engaged in the massive production, Executive Producer Ricky Kirshner alongside with Director Hamish Hamilton pulled together a production crew of some of the industry’s best staging, lighting, sound and special effects.
Eight full color lasers were positioned in eight of the radial carts. Eight additional lasers including four 50-watt yags and four of the full-color air cooled lasers were located upstage of the New Orleans Saints (NFC) bench. Diffraction, machidda and beam chases filled the arena with lasers.
Fourteen Pangolin QM2000.NET systems were all networked at a central control under the main stage.
