Types of Concert Stage Lights

Table of Contents

There are several different types of Concert Stage Lights. One of the most common is the PAR can (parabolic aluminized reflector), which are sealed beam lamps in a cylindrical metal casing. PAR cans are similar to car headlights but lack the zoom and precision focus of LEDs. However, they can provide directional lighting that can be adjusted for vertical and horizontal beams. PAR cans are also available in LED form. These fixtures can be used in conjunction with gels to create colored lights.

Apart from directing the audience’s attention to the performers, the color of the stage lighting can also have a dramatic effect. In fact, the color of the lights can even influence the mood of the audience. In general, red is known to be a mood-setting color that de-ages performers and smooths lines. Green, on the other hand, is known to make an audience sick. However, dark blue and aqua/bright blue lights are also known to create a calm and clear mood.

Three-point lighting: This method uses two lights in front and one behind the subject. The second light is a different color and is placed 30-40 inches behind the subject. Three-point lighting works well for live performances, keynote speeches, and public speaking. This technique uses two lights upfront and three behind the subject to create an even look, with minimal shadows cast on the audience. It also eliminates tripping hazards while allowing the performers to perform in the open air.

The goal of concert stage lights isn’t to be subtle or artistic. It’s to make you, the band, and your music shine as bright as possible in an effort to make your show a memorable experience and attract as many fans as possible. Whether you’re playing at Madison Square Garden or in front of hundreds at your church youth group, you want the lights to capture everyone’s attention so they can bask in the glory of your hard work!
