EST Still Trucking
Wednesday, 14 November 2001
Not content with dragging most of the aristocracy of rock all over the world, EST, probably the best known logistics experts in the industry, can still find time to get involved with other interesting and unusual projects. Currently, EST is touring with Walt Disney around most of the UK's major shopping Malls. Aficionados of Friday night's 'Later . . . with Jools Holland' might, if they were there, spot one of the well known purple and yellow trucks outside the BBC delivering and retrieving all of Jools equipment every Friday night with tireless regularity.

EST were also in the thick of things on 4 November when the World Premiere of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone took place at the Odeon Cinema, Leicester Square. EST trucked in screen support and barricades (by ESS and Mojo), presumably to keep thousands of screaming wannabe wizards back.

Forthcoming attractions for EST include eight trucks servicing the Scottish Motor Show at the SEC in Glasgow, and six trucks heading out to Lisbon for the launch of the new Toyota. Still jigging about Europe, mostly in Germany, the Riverdance tour is keeping EST busy. Also in Europe, EST are touring with Bryan Adams, mostly in Germany but with the odd foray into Holland and Belgium.

Beginning on 14 November, EST will accompany veteran rockers Jethro Tull in a rare UK and Eire tour beginning in Tunbridge Wells and ending in Cork on 3rd December, calling at such diverse places as York, Derby and Plymouth to name a few of the 16 venues. As if that wasn't enough, Orbital will spend a week on the road starting 10 November at the Guildhall, Portsmouth and finishing in London at Brixton Academy on the 16th.
