STUFISH has designed the Rolling Stones new No Filter European stadium tour -- which will take 59 articulated-lorries to travel the show to each stadium on its tour! The 13 shows kicked off in Hamburg on September 9, 2017.

The STUFISH set for the Rolling Stones No Filter tour is a cool display of clean and modern simplicity. The stage design is a whopping 52m wide x 24.5m deep -- making a staggering deck area of 1,600sqm. Plus a simple T shaped catwalk and a B-stage takes the action deep into the audience.

Giving the set its clean and unique silhouette are the four huge, monolithic 22m high x 11.6m wide towers covered with LED screens; with a total LED screen area of 915sqm and 5,930,496 LED screen pixels. These awesome slabs encase the multitude of moving lights giving the fire power required for a spectacular light show.

The band wanted a very clean modern look focused on the giant slab-like screens, which have been designed to give them a unique 3D perspective.

The two outer towers rotate outwards moving away from conventional flat back drops.

A lightweight transparent clear span roof 24.5m wide x 10.5m deep with a 12m cantilever hovers above the band, with minimal impact on the view of the screens behind.

The No Filter will tour with:
* 15,000kg of audio equipment
* 9,500kg of lighting equipment
* 36,000kg of LED screen
* 134 flown speaker cabinets
* 282 moving light fixtures
* Four LED screens, with each screen: 22m high x 11.6m wide

STUFISH reports "the company is proud to have been working with the Rolling Stones since 1989!"
