STAGE OF THE POLICE GIGS

imageThe group’s first series of reunion rehearsals in Vancouver were somewhat shaky, however things should run smoothly for tomorrow. The band will use two stages on tour — one for hockey arenas, one for outdoor stadiums like Commonwealth. The stage looks simple, however it is said it features technological master pieces. 39 semi-trailer trucks will be needed to haul the gear from city to city. On top, it’s just a plain oval platform on which there are two amps and a drum set. Underneath, inside the stage, is the hive of technology. The stage can be seen in this video (at 17:02).
