Carlos Rivera Tours with Chauvet Professional

Carlos Rivera on his Guerra Tour.

Fifteen years after winning the Mexican talent show La Academia, Carlos Rivera is still finding new ways to connect to audiences and stir passions. The award-winning singer and actor is demonstrating this on his current tour of South America, Mexico and the United States in support of his latest album, Guerra.

Rivera’s heartfelt performances of hits like “Regrésame Mi Corazón” and “Bendita Tu Vida” resonate with deep emotive power as they explore issues of love and life. Lighting designer Daniel “Gacela” Romero underscored this emotional force with a richly textured light show that featured Chauvet Professional fixtures, supplied by Pro Audio Solutions.

Romero chose 12 Maverick MK1 Hybrids, 12 Maverick MK3 Wash luminaires, 14 Maverick MK2 Spots, and 24 Rogue R2 Washes to amp up his tour design. The Maverick fixtures anchored his show, creating lush, bold colours, crisp evocative gobos and smooth, even fields of light.

Drawing on the overlapping 8- and 4-facet prisms, as well as the versatile gobo package of the Maverick MK1 Hybrid fixtures, Romero created an array of captivating looks that reflected the different transcendent moods conveyed by his client’s music. The Maverick MK2 Spot units contributed exciting aerial effects and specials to the show, while the Maverick MK3 Washes bathed the stage in captivating colours. 

¨With the Chauvet Professional Maverick fixtures, the pixels were fundamental during the design,” said Romero. “I used them in extended mode to take advantage of their flexibility, and because of the precision they offer with their pixel effects and chases.”
