Trizart Alliance was mandated by evenko / Live Nation Global Touring to design, budget, build and deliver a 82,000-seat stadium, built from the ground up, for U2’s 360 º World Tour. The temporary facility was designed to accommodate the giant stage structure known as “The Claw”.

The two concerts attracted over 162,000 spectators, making them the most important "paying" show in Canada.

The production required 100 semi-trailers for the show equipment and over 1,000 semi-trailers for the construction of the temporary stadium. This project also included design, site planning, seating layout, all the specialized audiovisual and multimedia equipment and monitoring of the construction site during the installations.

Comments from the U2 production team and Live Nation executives who were thrilled with the quality of the site and its operational efficiency:

"One of the biggest accomplishments in the history of rock & roll."
Arthur Fogel, Chief Executive Officer, Live Nation Global Touring

"Literally, no one does it better. You had a mountain to climb and you made it look easy, and with class."
Bob Koch, U2 360 Tour Business Manager

"You guys were the stars, believe me. An incredible event! Two sold out shows in a stadium that was created from nothing and looked stunning. I always look forward to coming to Montreal, to be with great people. You make it so easy for us."
Ian Jeffery, Live Nation Global Touring U2 360° Tour Accountant
