Genesis and their management had been principal investors in the Vari-Lite automated lighting company. This tour marked the debut of the second generation or "Series 200" Vari-Lite system which included the Artisan control console, VL2 spot, and VL3 wash luminaire fixtures. The large size of the lighting rig reflects the new system's useful capacity of up to 400 individual control channels (versus 96 for the older system). The VL3 was the first fixture capable of producing full spectrum cross-fades between colors by use of a patented color mixing system, as opposed to fixed wheels of single-color filters. The VL3 also brought a fuller, more diverse look to the lighting design; the older system's spot-only fixtures tended to give a very hard-edged look to vari-lite installations.
