One of my absolute favorite parts of Avenged Sevenfold’s live shows is seeing the lighting techniques and combinations that they use. To me, it’s an important aspect of any concert that can set the perfect mood to the songs being played on stage (i.e. “I Won’t See You Tonight Pt 1” and “Not Ready To Die” from the Welcome To The Family Tour). Projection, Lights and Staging News recently published an article where they spoke to Avenged Sevenfold’s Lighting Desinger Trevor Ahlstrand and Stage Designer/Production Manager Jordan Coopersmith about bringing together the big lighting looks, layered visuals, set design and pyro, cue-to-cue timing and more. This is a fantastic article to read if you’ve ever been interested in how the concepts for Avenged Sevenfold’s stage production come along and come alive for you to enjoy. Thank you for everyone included in making this happen for the fans to enjoy.
Last but not least, Ahlstrand gives kudos to the band. “Avenged Sevenfold are a real pleasure to work with. They are not only extremely talented musicians but are amazing human beings. They have great vision for their live shows and trust their team to accomplish it. All the members of the Avenged team work extremely well together and help add to the success of this great band.”
