Daytona Stage Hire has completed its mobile stage work for this year’s European Hard Rock Rising ‘On The Road’ Tour.
Daytona Stage Hire beat national competition to win the contract to supply a mobile stage rig complete with sound, lighting and generators.
The European tour, which launched in Glasgow in mid-May, visited 15 cities in total, most of which had tricky access to the concert site within each of the city centres.
The tour organisers needed a staging company that could supply them with a compact rig that was capable of carrying four tonnes of extra equipment but was also easily moveable within tight spaces.
Daytona Stage Hire provided a fully branded custom, 15m truck that converted to a live music stage for all 15 European locations.
Narissa O’Moore, European tour manager, said: “Daytona’s stage was the perfect fit for our requirements. Throughout the European tour the Daytona kit outperformed again and again with not one equipment malfunction throughout the whole tour. We were on a tight schedule but I never had any cause for concern that the stage wouldn’t be ready; the Daytona team were punctual, efficient and overall a joy to work with.”
The eight-week “On The Road” tour covered 8,300 miles. At each stop, Hard Rock Rising “On The Road” offered fans an exciting free concert featuring local bands that performed live on Daytona’s DS60 stage, alongside a pop-up bar, a Rock Shop retail store and giveaways.
Paul Haigh, managing director of Daytona Stage Hire, said: “We were extremely pleased to be selected to supply the staging rig for this prestigious tour. We pride ourselves in delivering a quality product that is built for purpose. Our DS60 stage is one of our mid size stages and perfect for this type of scenario. When derigged it is compact and easy to transport but in just a short set-up time it became an impressive concert stage fully equipped with a quality sound, lighting and power package especially for this tour. It is an ultra strong stage that has performed very well over the last couple of months.”
