Fare Thee Well Tour - Soldier Field

Switch Rail Systems, Inc., Horizontal Clamp System with Custom 60

July 3rd and 4th, 2015 marked the final two concert dates for the reunited original members of iconic touring band, The Grateful Dead.

The Grateful Dead's 'Fare Thee Well Tour' was, arguably, the concert event of the decade, if not the century. Because of this, paid seating was maximized at Soldier Field in Chicago with additional rows of seating being installed last minute to accommodate extra ticket sales.

These 'semi-permanent temporary' seating locations required regulation safety railings be installed for the event. As a result, Switch Rail Systems Rental Division was called on to provide the required safety rail systems.

Switch Rail Systems, Inc., installed their innovative Horizontal Clamp System product with Custom 60" "High Rail" railing system. This patented safety rail system is fully OSHA compliant and, when properly installed, exceeds those same requirements.
