Iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden is packing arenas and wowing head-banging crowds with its spectacular Legacy of the Beast European tour.

Helping to bring its richly-designed stage show to life is entertainment lighting from Signify.

The company’s Philips Vari-Lite VL6000 beams provide both the heavy-duty punch and the subtlety required by lighting designer Robert Coleman.

The show moves from a searchlight that depicts war, to illuminating a stunning cathedral and finally, Hell.

Robert said: “They are versatile and incredibly powerful – they’ve been hitting the back wall of the stadiums.

“Also, the combined colours from them have been stunning. I have particularly enjoyed the strobe, especially when blasting the audience.”

The 38-date Legacy of the Beast European tour marks the band’s 16th studio album and ends in London on August 11.
