MSR Mobile Stages provided various Stageline® mobile stages around Vancouver, from the O Zone, the largest of the celebration sites located in the heart of Richmond, to the Surrey celebration site in Holland Park, and VANOC's Place de la Francophonie on Granville Island. The stages hosted performances ranging from Our Lady Peace and Sam Roberts Band to a variety of French Canadian artists. One additional stage was also used as a television studio for the Colbert Report on February 17.
MSR also supplied two Stageline mobile stages for the Paralympics Torch Relay beginning in Ottawa today and concluding at BC Place on March 12. Following the flame, two Stageline SL260 stages will take part in this journey.
Two Stageline SL260 mobile stages also accompanied the earlier Olympic Torch Relay from its arrival on Canadian soil on its three-month, 45,000km marathon. Two shows per day were setup on the mobile stages as the main focal point at the events and celebrations. Facing gruelling and often extreme weather conditions as low as -30 F/-35 C, the Torch and the stages reached their final destination in BC Place on February 12.
