All instructed, the efficiency required the participation of some 800 folks, from digicam operators to stage crews to Rihanna and her 80 dancers and 7 band members. It additionally required an excessive amount of constructing. With a purpose to decrease the load on the sector, the stage Rihanna carried out on needed to be constructed out of not more than 15 rolling buildings (referred to as “carts”). 

Due to the form of the tunnels main right down to discipline degree at State Farm, All Entry—the corporate liable for fabricating the stage—needed to construct platforms with stairs that might be tilted up for transport. The carts vary in form from 10 by 24 toes to eight by 31 toes, and each weighs wherever from 2,000 to 4,000 kilos and is outfitted with “turf tires” (not a technical time period) designed to roll gently and evenly over the grass. “You don’t wish to have a participant taken out of the sport on concussion protocol as a result of we left laborious spots on the ground,” says Tommy Rose, All Entry’ staging supervisor. “We’re actually conscious about that.” 

Then there are the platforms themselves. Each, roughly 10 by 17.5 toes, needed to be saved up by these trusses in the course of the first half of the sport after which guided right down to discipline degree on artificial cables in these valuable seven-plus minutes the stage was being arrange utilizing a collection of automated motors. The underside of every one was affixed with 512 lights choreographed to maneuver together with Rihanna’s efficiency. The platforms additionally needed to be returned to the trusses and keep there till the sport was over. And in contrast to the gear used for earlier halftime reveals, they couldn’t be wheeled out and in of the stadium simply, that means a number of the ultimate rehearsals earlier than the Massive Sport needed to be accomplished within the stadium, not at an off-site location like in earlier years. 

“This will likely be, in my view, essentially the most technically superior Tremendous Bowl halftime present that’s ever been accomplished due to the quantity of tech used to maneuver the platforms,” says Aaron Siebert, the mission lead from Tait Towers, which made the platforms. 

Floating platforms helped lower the halftime present’s impression on the Tremendous Bowl enjoying discipline.
