Vasco Rossi

No less than 225,000 people converged on Modena Park in Italy to witness the spectacle of Vasco Rossi’s one-off show on July 1st 2017. Co-produced by Big Bang and Live Nation Italy, and designed by Claudio Santucci, the concert saw Stageco contributing to the stage, collaborating with PRG Belgium on the video elements of the production. Stageco and PRG came together to develop six custom made portals for the video screens. Each tower required for the portals measured 7m x 7m x 18m. Four of these portals were automated via a Wicreations controller – they each connected to a 15m x 9m screen and were positioned either side of the main central screen. Along with the screens, power generators and lighting fixtures, the portals – which were connected to two 52m long rails to cover the whole of the stage – weighed approximately 25 tonnes. A Stageco crew of eight, with local support, took five days to load in and set up for the show. This was boosted to 10 Stageco crew for the three-day load-out.
