Foo Fighters “Concrete & Gold” Tour

Foo Fighters rockin’ it at Etihad Stadium

The Foo Fighters “Concrete and Gold” world tour hit Melbourne town in January 2018. The 11-time Grammy award winning band have now racked up over 25 million album sales and show no signs of slowing down. The spectacular live entertainment event was dubbed “magnificent” by critics as the Foo Fighters played to a 46,000-strong crowd.  It is the bands’ 23rd year and by all accounts they can still rock a crowd.

At a grassed venue such as Etihad Stadium, it is paramount that the integrity of the surface is maintained. When you are hosting a band like the Foo Fighters who are a rock and roll to the core, you can expect the whole crowd to be up on their feet.

No Fuss Event Hire was instrumental in preserving the quality of the grass underfoot which could only be achieved so successfully with specific products being I-Trac and Supa-Trac.

The I-Trac temporary flooring is the most flexible, highly capable and heavy-duty portable roadway flooring system. It is the first non-metal system capable of taking on the aluminium alternatives. Using other aluminium based products that are on the market, can have grassed covered areas turning brown within 40 minutes of being laid. Our I-Trac system will have the grass bouncing back lush and green for up to 3 days after being laid and acts as a temporary roadway and turf protection initiative. One of its key uses is on grassed surfaces for stage bases, mosh pits, temporary parking areas and even helipads, I-Trac will leave the turf in excellent condition following extraction. This was a perfect solution for the Foo Fighters concert at Etihad.

The unique Supa-Trac temporary flooring solution, which is durable yet lightweight, makes it the ideal ground protection matting solution for any marquee and stadium flooring, pedestrian pathways or anywhere that heavy foot traffic (e.g. Mosh pits), or equipment will travel.

This ideal temporary flooring solution can support the weight of forklifts with pneumatic tyres, light trucks and vehicular traffic providing the perfect solution to temporary parking. Supa-Trac is another superior turf and ground protection product, with panels allowing light, air and water to reach the turf, keeping grass alive whilst protecting the turf from being directly affected by pedestrians or vehicles. Supa-Trac is suitable for natural and synthetic turf, indoors or out.

Supa-Trac is a widely recognised design for temporary coverage solutions from pedestrian access, to event flooring and festival flooring to car parking, military shelters and helipads. When you are looking for an all-inclusive flooring hire, you can’t go past Supa-Trac for a comprehensive coverage solution.
