Shawn Mendes: The Tour
Show experience fans would never forget
Roses are a recurring symbol Shawn Mendes uses so when lighting designer Louis Oliver from The Tour’s team got in touch with PixMob lighting operator and programmer Rafael Linares, the idea to tailor the X2 wristband programming to work in tandem with both a giant stage rose and the smaller handheld roses featured in previous collaborations was a no-brainer.
A special rose — just for the fans
A big part of the show’s overall experience for the fans is a smaller, handheld rose with an LED in the centre that’s given out to VIP attendees or bought as merch — an item they could even keep as a souvenir of their night out with Shawn.
Originally conceived by the Mendes team for Shawn’s Billboard performance, this life-sized synthetic rose’s LED mirrors the wristband programming to help the lighting sequences achieve a maximized effect — something lighting operators already love to see with the wristbands alone, as it amplifies the visibility and effect of their design.
