Milos stage hosts Roxette in BergenMilos at Bergen Calling
Norway - Staging and technical production company AVAB-CAC Bergen AS, based in Bergen, has supplied its new custom designed Milos roofing system for a recent series of concerts in and around the town, including a recent show by Swedish pop superstars Roxette.

The band who had a string of chart-topping hits in the 1990s are back on the road again with a world tour and their first studio album Room Service in 10 years.

The Roxette show was staged at Bergenhus Fortress & Castle (a greenfield site, which is part of a medieval fortress and castle) located in the middle of Bergen's historic centre. It was moved from its originally intended site and the capacity increased from 6,500 to 10,000 people - which was immediately - again - sold out.

The roof features seven tower supports and a top trussing grid made up of RTT and FTT trussing.

The structure is 20m wide by 16 deep with 10.5m of headroom above the stage, providing a performance space for medium to large shows. It has a sloping asymmetric roof and is constructed from a combination of Milos standard and custom products - including M950 and QTKT truss, M520 folding truss and MT2 Towers.

The roof supply project was managed for Milos by Milan Kolousek and by Arne Svendsen for AVAB-CAC Bergen AS.

The stage was designed by Milos at their HQ in the Czech Republic, complete with a special vertical keder profile at the request of the client, which allows for quick and complete covering of the side walls.

The keder can be fast-dismantled allowing a very speedy breakdown of the side skins. The rooftop canopy and the keder location has also been designed to protect all six motors from the rain.
