A Helping Hand Home and Away
Another very busy month for Rock City delivering over 28,000 man hours over 300 projects. Two stadium shows at The Principality with Coldplay and Justin Bieber set the tone, all ran smoothly, multiple calls with multiple changes seems we have got the hang of it after 17 years.
Festival season was now in full swing with Boomtown, Wilderness, Port Elliot, Sidmouth Folk Festival, TRNSMT, Blenheim Palace, Latitude and the multiple shows down at the Eden Project. All mixing Site, Production and Corporate whilst picking up a large amount of product work erecting and dismantling marquees with three self-contained teams. Looking at getting three of our own specially equipped vans with experienced crews.
This year saw Rock City supply a small team to Showstars in their crewing of the opening and closing ceremonies of The 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games held in Ashgabat Turkmenistan. Great chance for the lads to get a unique experience of a very secretive country, all came back safe and sound with stories to tell. Less glamourous but just as important Rock City was able to put large amounts of crew with Stage Miracles shows at Twickenham, Wembley and Southampton this summer filling the gaps where needed. Both Showstars and Miracles return the favour on our Principality shows guaranteeing promotors and event organisers skilled crews well managed with proven experience of large scale events. Probably the icing on the cake was MTV Gibraltar.
