Carrie Underwood launched her “The Denim & Rhinestones Tour” on October 15, 2022 with a sold-out show in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. One of the scenic elements used for the tour is a set of LED neon wings, lit using 24 reels of QolorFLEX NuNeon®, RGB, which are suspended to float behind Carrie while she sings in midair over the audience. City Theatrical had a conversation with PRG's Technical Designer for Scenic Electrics Jay Woods and PRG North America's Set Electrics Team Lead R.J. Craig to find out more about the design and fabrication of the wings scenic element that will be used on tour through March 2023.
"I think it all came together so well due to the craftmanship of the Set Electrics team at PRG, and the versatility of QolorFLEX NuNeon as a low profile, highly flexible, super vibrant LED product backed by the team at City Theatrical."
