The history of Optex is in staging. While Optex has built corporate and fashion stages since it's beginning, concert stages began with the original "Police Picnic" in Montreal, 1981. Since Optex has provided concert stages for Rod Stewart, Lolapalooza Festival and the Brian Adams tour. The wonder of the scaffold base stage is cheer flexibility. Extra loading can be integrated into audio fly-points, and the special requirements for the flying of lighting fixtures, truss and cabling are easily adapted.
