Milos provides quick assembly stage for nineties duo comeback12 July 2011
Roxette, best known for the nineties number one hit ‘It must have been love’, are publicising their latest album ‘Room Service’ with a series of gigs centred on Bergen, so Milos were called in by events technology provider AVAB-CAC to design wind-resistant roof trussing, capable of supporting 16t of audio/visual equipment.
Milos’ 20m x 16m x 10.5m trussing grid consists of 7 tower supports for the asymmetric sloping roof, and was mainly constructed from Milos standard range of products, including M520 folding trusses, MT2 towers, QTKT and M950 trusses.
Some custom-made elements were also required for the structure, including a vertical Keder that allows quick installation and disassembly of the stage sidewall stage dressing and, along with the roof, helps to protect the roof motors from the rain.
The stage was built in the heart of Bergen’s historic quarter on the grounds of Bergenhus Fortress and Castle. A four-week design and build period resulted in a stage and roof structure that can be assembled by a 16-strong crew in two days.
Commenting on the long-standing relationship between AVAB-CAC and Milos, AVAB-CAC project manager Arne Svendsen said the company uses Milos frequently because of its strong reputation. “They listen to our needs and do their best to find a solution,” he said.
