Lighting designer Tom Kenny specified 42 Astera Titan tubes as part of the lighting rig for rockers The Who.

Their Moving On! tour just finished the first leg and will play 31 dates in the US, Canada and England accompanied by a local orchestra in each venue conducted by Keith Levinson, plus special guests including violinist Katie Jacoby and cellist Audrey Snyder.

The orchestral presentation demanded a completely new style and approach to creating a visuality onstage.

Roger Daltry specifically didn’t want a large video wall at the back or in fact any onstage video elements.

There was a clear directive to strip back, encouraging audiences to concentrate on the show and focus on the human side of the music.
