Lighting Designer Bob Barnhart, who has lent his talents to 19 Super Bowl Halftime Shows, chose Claypaky Mythos and Sharpy fixtures to help illuminate Lady Gaga in her solo turn at Super Bowl LI at Houston’s NRG Stadium.

This year, Barnhart employed 56 Mythos on field truss set against the upstage wall below the first row of seats. The lights were positioned on 2.5ft spacings from the centre of the field out to the 20yd lines.

He also used 126 Claypaky Sharpys, which were bolted to the fascia on two levels of the upstage side of the stadium. The compact size of the Sharpys meant they could be bolted without interfering with the view of people seated above and below the light levels.

PRG provided all of the Claypaky fixtures.

For the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Pete Radice and David Grill were Lighting Directors, Tony Ward was Gaffer, and Robb Minnotte Lead Tech.

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Claypaky.
