Bruce Springsteen to perform alongside Paul McCartney at BC Place

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Breaking news out of the Vancouver concert scene today! What was already a red-hot concert featuring Paul McCartney at BC Place on November 25 just got a lot better with the announcement today that fellow music icon Bruce Springsteen would be performing alongside the former Beatle Sunday night.

As per CKNW:

A concert match made in heaven?

Springsteen was already slated to perform a concert in Vancouver the following day, so his appearance at BC Place has been speculated on for some time. Sunday’s concert at BC Place is sold out at the box office, but you can still get tickets for Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen with ShowTimeTickets.com – We Are Never Sold Out! This is certainly one concert that you don’t want to miss!

It’s been nearly 50 years since The Beatles played at Empire Stadium in Vancouver, but Sir Paul McCartney still knows how to make an entrance. With a little help from the folks at BC Place, Vancouver’s skyline has a distinctly British flavour nowadays with the Union Jack projecting from the stadium’s roof.

Check it out!

November 2012 – A concert-goer’s paradise?

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

November isn’t all about the ‘Mo and the coming of the Canadian winter. Or at least it hasn’t been for music fans in the Great White North.

You’d think the absence of hockey would make for dull and dreary times in arenas in Vancouver and Edmonton, but the concert schedule is looking pretty swell for the tail end of November. True, it has been a tough slog for the sports fan waiting for the puck to finally drop on a season, but if you believe in quality over quantity, headline acts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruce Springsteen and Sir Paul McCartney coming to town should make any entertainment buff more than a little excited. All three of the aforementioned acts make their hotly-anticipated appearances in Western Canada in the coming days.

Those out East also plenty to be excited about, with pop superstars Justin Bieber (with Carly Rae Jepsen), and music legends Neil Young and The Who making their way to Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal in the coming weeks. And oh yeah – Canadian sports fans have that little football party called the 100th Grey Cup lighting up downtown Toronto come November 25.
