Chris Kuroda Has Your Justin Bieber Guitar Picks

Kuroda lights Bieber

As previously reported, longtime Phish lightning designer Chris Kuroda is working with Justin Bieber on his current tour. Kuroda’s connection to Bieber is the teen idol’s musician director/guitarist Dan Kanter, a devoted Phish fan and friend of the band. Kanter got Kuroda to design the light show for Bieber’s current run of shows and made sure to schedule his tour so CK5 wouldn’t miss any Phish dates. Kanter is encouraging Bieber’s fans to meet Kuroda, too and sent out the following tweet:

Gave @ChrisCk5 a bag of my JB guitar picks. During the countdown go say hi and ask him for one at the sound/light board at the back.

Bieber will perform at Los Angeles, CA’s Staples Center this evening while Phish will return to New York’s Madison Square Garden from December 28-31.

“yeah, because as history shows, Chris loves it when fans come up and bug him at the board before and during the show.” that’s exactly what i was thinking…

haha cleet i was thinking the same thing. i’m pretty sure that’s the last thing he’d want. BUT considering the music is all pre recorded and there is no improv, i’m sure the lights are too. he may just start the lights and let em run.

great lights on bieber the other nite when he puked his guts out!! Maybe Kantner bottled some of that to give out to kuroda! I hear Cash Register’s ringing Good for u Mr. Kuroda!! I wonder if he has a puke bag behind the board just in case!!
