Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 Tour Rankings represent a diverse array of artists, but they all have something in common: Their lighting vendors have provided either Clay Paky fixtures or grandMA2 control options for their tours. Both brands are exclusively distributed in North America by A.C.T Lighting, Inc.
The Top 10 Tour Rankings from Billboard Magazine are based on the gross ticket sales tallied from mid-November 2013 to mid-November 2014. The Top 10 artists are, in order from 1 to 10: One Direction, Justin Timberlake, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Katy Perry, Paul McCartney, Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, and Michael Buble.
Clay Paky Sharpys, Sharpy Washes and A.leda B-EYE K20 fixtures are popular favorites among the lighting designers for these heavy hitters. grandMA2 full-size and light consoles are their preferred control options, too. They recognize the power, punch and reliability of Clay Paky fixtures and grandMA consoles on the road, coast to coast and around the world.
