BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND


By George Petersen
FOH MAGAZINE Online


A Bruce Springsteen tour isn't just an event; it is a movement celebrated by fans in packed venues around the world.

And in an era when groups are scaling down with smaller ensembles, acoustic shows and looking at "more intimate" venues, Springsteen brings his own version of intimacy to stadiums and arenas, staying just as much in touch with audience members in the front row as the people in row YY on the second deck.

FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION 2012


Solotech was proud to support the "First Robotic" program in NEVADA. We want to take this opportunity to congratulate the support organizations and all the competing teams.

FIRST was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.

Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand" hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It's as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get.

The difference is Odysseo is much larger in every conceivable way. For starters, this show has 71 horses. All other traveling equestrian shows play in arenas. The shows in the Cavalia franchise have to build their venues.
