Mojo keeps the crowd’s safe at open air Muse gig

World Z WarGlobal stage barrier and crowd safety company Mojo Barriers supplied a 300 metre stage barrier system for a one-off performance by Muse – part of the UK premier of Brad Pitt’s latest film World War Z, 2nd June 2013.

Taking place at the iconic Horse Guards Parade, Mojo Barrier’s UK office supplied its trusted aluminium system across the entire site; ensuring the safety of the 15,000-strong crowd.

Mojo Barriers worked with production managers Steve Nolan and Daria Drazkiewic from Chromatic Productions (on behalf of organisers Live Nation and Paramount Pictures) to design and install a bespoke barrier configuration.

Jim Gaffney, Mojo Barriers UK manager, comments: “The main element of the design was a golden circle area following the line of the Z-shaped stage, giving the first 500 lucky fans close up views of the band. Our specialist corner sections enabled us to create a very clean finish within a confined space which also incorporated enough room for security personnel and media to access the areas they needed.”


The team also installed barriers to section off the VIP area, which housed red carpet stars including Brad Pitt.

Mojo Barriers six-strong crew led by Greg Johnson, worked to very tight deadlines due to noise and vehicle curfews in place at the site.

Muse performed a 45 minute set, including songs from all of their past albums, plus songs from the new World War Z soundtrack.

Dec 2012 Mojo Barriers back with Muse for the 2nd Law Tour

Cees MuurlingMojo Barriers has provided stage barriers for the UK and European dates of Muse’s 2nd Law Tour, with the company’s US office enlisted to supply the US leg in 2013.

The stage barrier and crowd management specialist has provided 80m of powder coated black aluminium barriers to the 27 UK and European dates, starting on 16th October at Park&Suites Arena in Montpellier, France and ending at Zénith in Strasbourg, France on 19th December.

Supplied direct from the company’s Holland headquarters the barriers are used to form a full front of stage line and encircle the front of house structure across all indoor arena dates.

Mojo Barriers managing director, Cees Muurling, says: “This tour is a dry hire meaning we have no Mojo crew out on the road. We have a long standing relationship with Muse having supplied barricades on previous tours. Steve Iredale – who I have worked closely with since we met in 1996 on a Bon Jovi gig – understands and trusts our product. We’re looking forward to working with him on the stadium tour next year in Europe.”

Following a short break over the Christmas and New Year Mojo Barrier’s US office, led by company president J.B Dolphin, will be supplying the same product on the 31 US tour dates, starting on the 21st January at the Valley View Casino Center in san Diego California.
