On August 4, 2013, I experienced the best concert, no,
one of the best nights of my life. I arrived at Barclays center at 7: 45pm, trembling
with excitement. I was there to see the one and only Beyonce Gisele Knowles
The show did not officially start until 8:00pm, and Beyonce was not
scheduled to come on until 9:30! I spent a good amount of time roaming the
newly built Barclays center buying apparel and snack while suffering from
immense pre-show anxiety. Finally, at 8:45 we decided to go to our seats and
enjoy the opening act; Luke James. He did a great job but I found myself too
excited and distracted to really enjoy his music in my wait to see Queen Bey.
about 9:30pm the lights dimmed, the curtain came up, and out came the striking
Mrs. Carter. Her voice sounded even
better live, her dance moves were out of this world, and her sheer presence was
staggering. As if she wasn’t unbelievable enough, the light displays were the
best I have ever seen and only added to the show. I later found out that it was
actually one of the brightest shows ever performed, and Beyonce worked together
hand in hand with the technicians to perfect the lighting effects. Let me tell
you, she beyond succeeded. She looked like a Goddess up on stage and was even
suspended in the air floating above the audience mid song. The lighting made
the production enormous and each song had a lighting effect that was suited
perfectly to its melody.
The use of LED SGM
X-5 strobes made the stage look extremely dramatic and bright. I could not take
my eyes off the stage even for a second. The mix of Beyonce’s stage presence
and the light effects made it impossible for me to sit even for a second. I would have to say one of the best effects
were the strobe lights that illuminated the second stage as she descended on to
it from a trapeze belt in midair. For an hour and a half from “End of Time” to “Halo”,
Beyonce never stopped or faltered even for a second. The lights highlighted her
talents and she truly gave her all and shined.
Now I am not
saying that by buying great Strobe and LED performance lights you can put on a show
as great as Beyonce, However I do believe when used correctly, they add A LOT
to a production or party. At bulbAmerica.com you can find affordable performance and
party bulbs to suit your every need and take you event to the next level.
And if you have never been to a Beyonce concert I suggest you get
online and buy tickets this second to witness the performance of a lifetime!
