Alan Walker returned to India for a four-city Sunburn Arena  Tour in April 2021, inviting legions of fans in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Gurgaon to see the British-Norwegian DJ, YouTuber and record producer on stage. His Bengaluru show featured 28 Claypaky Mythos 2 hybrid lights provided by Reynold’s Sound & Lighting Service.

Walker’s EDM concert in Bengaluru was one of the biggest post-lockdown shows in India attracting an audience of some 10,000 people. “Alan Walker is super energetic so to match key lighting with the artist Claypaky Mythos 2 fixtures were chosen for their powerful beam and amazing mid-air effects,” said Pankil Ahuja, Claypaky Sales Manager for the Indian subcontinent.  “The fixtures helped to create something really cool and eye catching that conveyed the feel of EDM to Alan’s fans.”

The complement of Mythos 2 key lights was positioned on the main stage where they fulfilled several functions.  “As hybrid fixtures the Mythos 2 not only served as key lights; their versatility enabled the Lighting Designer, Kenneth Tangen to switch to beam mode when desired and spot mode to highlight Alan,” Ahuja explained. “Mythos 2 fixtures are also packed with amazing effects and colours offering even more advantages to the designer.  They proved to be as dynamic as Alan’s performance on stage!”

Technical Producer, Shipra Venkatesh concluded: “As a touring LD, Kenneth is open to and works at making most of the features any substitute has to offer. With bright lamps, cool gobos and good functionality, the Clay Paky Mythos is a solid hybrid fixture. The Bangalore show took place in the midst of a complete downpour and we didn’t lose a single light. That was a huge highlight for all of us and will always be special. Shoutout to the entire crew.”
