Metallica

56th Grammy Awards 

2014

 

Rock legends Metallica and the Chinese concert pianist, Lang Lang, collaborated on a rendition of the band’s song One at the 56th Grammy Awards this year.  As the track is one of Metallica’s laser numbers, ER Productions were called upon to supply lasers for the televised event.

Although ER Productions has provided laser effects for Metallica’s live performances of One since 2012, this event called for something special.  To that end, ER designed special edition red Burstboxes to use in combination with high powered white and gold OPS lasers. The custom built Burstbox lasers were used to scan across the audience, creating an effect that had never been used at that the Grammys before!
