UK rental company HSL supplied Electric Fly Productions with lighting equipment for The Darkness?s hugely successful UK tour, working with lighting designer Nick Jevons. This saw the band?s return to the major touring circuit after a five year hiatus, ahead of the launch of a third studio album, slated for 2012.Jevons - known as a master of invention with an aversion to convention ? regularly uses Blackburn based HSL to supply his shows and events. He says, ?They are the best! Absolutely second to none, a great company, superlative service, spot-on attitude, unwavering dedication to the job ?. and lovely people?. The Darkness was project managed for HSL by Mike Oates, who comments, ?We always look forward to working with Nick and his team at Electric Fly. No job is ever predictable or standard, and the results are always visually spectacular.?This is the first time that Jevons has worked with The Darkness, asked onboard after working with production manager Chris Taplin and The Faces in the summer. He jumped at the chance to design a classic rock lightshow with all the glitz, glamour and fabulousness and none of the clich?s ? utilising the latest technology and bringing a totally fresh approach.
