Star Events stages Stone Roses Wembley show

Star Events staged the Stone Roses’ set at Wembley Stadium as the band performed a sold-out show to a crowd of 90,000 on Saturday night (17 June).

This was the first London show for the band since Finsbury Park in 2013.

The sound was liaised by production manager Michael O’Connor with Star Events and SEE to ensure Stone Roses’ front-of-house engineer’s requirements were fully met.

Star Events’ design team customised the VerTech stage to accommodate Wembley’s steep rake, elevating four twin hangs of sub bass and main audio boxes some 19m above the stadium bowl.

“This was our first VerTech show at the new Wembley Stadium,” said Pete Holdich, head of structures at Star Events. “We know what the challenges are and, together with SSE, we were able to deliver a stage solution that ticked all the audio boxes while facilitating the tour’s stunning video and lighting design.”

Star Events supplied the stage for the Stone Roses’ legendary Spike Island show in 1990 and has provided for the band’s headline outdoor shows in the UK ever since.

“There’s a very good event team at Wembley and we’re looking forward to going back with Adele later this month,” Holdich added.
