Rolling Stones - Bigger Bang Tour Stage

The Bigger Bang Stage
Project Overview: 
McLaren engineers provided structural engineering, reviews, and certification for the 85 foot tall, 200-foot wide stage structure and components for the 2005 Rolling Stones International tour. The massive stadium stage structure supported pyrotechnic effects, huge speaker clusters, hundreds of lights and thousands of square feet of high and low resolution video screen.
McLaren's Role: 
The audience balconies were accessed by two large stair towers located in the rear of the stage structure. An ADA lift also traveled with the stage to ensure that these premier viewing locations were accessible to everyone. McLaren engineers reviewed and confirmed the safety and code compliance of each of these unique features. McLaren engineers continued to assist the Rolling Stones throughout the touring process by working with local permitting agencies to explain analysis and safety features and to provide support regarding protection of venue grounds and features. Additionally, McLaren engineers provided on-site inspection and consultation during the state erection process for many of the venues.
