Cat® Entertainment Services Rocks the Rolling Stones

April 04, 2016 11:46

Cat® Entertainment Services (CES) recently provided the temporary power and temperature control for last stop on The Rolling Stones’ “América Latina Olé” stadium tour, which kicked off in Santiago, Chile, Feb. 3 and wrapped up with a ground-breaking concert in Havana, Cuba, March 25.

The final performance of the Olé tour marked an historic occasion — especially for Cubans born around the start of the 1959 Communist revolution, when former Cuban leader Fidel Castro banned all rock music. For decades since then, the only way fans of the genre could keep up with the Rolling Stones and other rock and roll groups of the day was covertly — listening to smuggled records or picking up rogue radio signals.

A few hundred thousand fans turned out for the free concert in Ciudad Deportiva, the capital city’s sports complex. To keep the crowd and the band energized, Cat Entertainment Services supplied 2.5 megawatts of Cat prime power, along with container loads of distribution equipment, HVAC, and site construction products used by the roadies and stagehands to build the entire concert venue.

Behind the scenes, CES technicians installed the power and HVAC equipment and remained on-site to operate it until well after the last note was played.

Today we pause to remember those lost on a horrific day 12 years ago. We also remember those ordinary people who became extraordinary heroes.

We will never forget. Cat Entertainment Services is honored to have provided temporary power for New York’s Tribute in Light since 2008. The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11 attacks.
