Mojo Barriers’ Busy European Touring Summer

With over 1,000m of Mojo’s touring barrier supplied across 201 tour dates, this summer saw Mojo Barriers’ European business consolidate its position as a global partner to  artists touring UK and Europe; September 2016.     

Stanley Jilesen headed up Mojo’s summer tours in Europe, supplying enough specially designed touring barrier to cross from France to England across the English Channel. Featuring on five of the summer’s biggest tours, Mojo supplied all 42 European tour dates of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ The Getaway World Tour, 28 European dates of Bruce Springsteen’s The River Tour 2016, including his open-air concert at the Malieveld in The Hague, 33 AC / DC dates featuring Axle Rose on vocals, 23 European tour dates of Rihanna’s The Anti World Tour and 50 European tour dates of Muse’s The Drones World Tour.

All the tours benefitted from Mojo Barriers’ world famous stage barriers, with specially designed features, including Vario and Flex corners and Mega Exits, along with full support designing and installing customised barrier configurations within each venue.

Four out of five of these tours have come out of the US, and it was great to get the opportunity to work with new performers whilst continuing to build on our longstanding relationships with existing clients. As well as an incredibly busy summer of festivals, these contract wins reflect our strong links with the concert and touring industry, which is a core part of our business.”

Sep 2007 Mojo Barriers provide “gold standard” for The Police

police07With one of the fastest-selling tours this year on their hands, The Police needed to know that their audiences were in safe hands when it came to the provision of crowd safety barriers.

The market-leading company Mojo Barriers was a natural choice for the band’s tour production director, Charlie Hernandez. Speaking at the one of The Police’s concerts at Twickenham, UK, he enthused about the quality of the company’s products and installation service. “Mojo Barriers are the gold standing in the (live music)industry.” he said.

The company installs 300 meters of its aluminium Mojo Barriers at all European shows. The set-up is a classic front of stage barrier system with a secondary barrier in the shape of an arc, to segregate the audience and decrease loading on the front-of-stage barrier. The system was equipped with eight “line up” gates to safely control the flow of the crowd in and out of the secondary barrier.

Headed up by crew boss Jeroen Tap, Mojo Barriers also installed barriers around the mixing positions and delay towers in the crowd. 

Mojo Barriers provided the band’s aluminium Mojo Barriers for the shows in the US earlier this year and will continue to supply The Police with their product for the upcoming shows in the US South America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

“Major tours like The police are always a challenge for Mojo Barriers,” says managing director Patrick Jordan. “Crowd management standards are continuously evolving and we, as a company, have to ensure we can offer the very best facilities for these high profile concerts.”
