Eight members of Gonzales-based Rhino Louisiana are on their way to Washington, D.C., to begin work on the massive stage used by The Rolling Stones as part of the band’s No Filter tour, which stops next week at FedExField.
As many as two dozen workers from the event labor company will work with the band on its northeastern swing, building the stage’s steel framework. Rhino, founded in 2006, typically works in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette and Shreveport-Bossier City.
The workers will rejoin the tour as it travels back south to the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, as well as in Jacksonville, Houston and Denver.
“We are proud to once again have the opportunity to work with the largest touring stadium shows of the summer and providing them with a safe and experienced crew” Ray Cullen, Rhino Louisiana director of operations, says in a press release.
