BC Place welcomes Paul McCartney with Union Jack roof

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

By Kat

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!

U2 360° Tour tickets now available, breaking sales records

Monday, April 20th, 2009

After having released their twelfth studio album, No Line on the Horizon, in February of this year, U2 will be embarking on a World Tour beginning on June 30, 2009 as they travel Europe for six months on the first leg of the U2 360° Tour, then continue on with the North American leg on September 12th. Tickets for the previously pre-sale only shows have just gone on sale and have already begun to break sales records; as of mid-April the tour has already surpassed 2.5 million tickets sold. Individual venues continued to set records as the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles sold-out at 90,000 tickets, becoming the fastest selling and largest attended concert to play at that location in history!

Tour stops across North America continued the trend of outstanding sales, with the stop at Vancouver’s BC Place reaching a staggering 57,000 tickets sold, on par with the shows in Washington and Boston. Close to half of the shows on this World Tour have already sold out, with the other locations not far behind. The tour will begin on June 30th in Barcelona, where the band will continue to travel Europe for the next two and a half months before crossing the pond and landing in Chicago to kick off the North American portion of the tour on September 12th. From there they will travel west for the next month and a half hitting up all the major cities across the continent. Be sure to check the listings below for the show nearest you!

Tickets for AC/DC’s Return North American Tour Now Available!

Friday, April 17th, 2009

With the midway point of their European tour fast approaching, AC/DC still has the power to sell out stadiums – just look at their remaining shows in which only three of twenty-four venues still have tickets available, even three months in advance! AC/DC tickets for the Foxborough, MA show on July 28th have already gone on sale, as well as five others including the show in Tacoma, WA. Tickets for the show in Vancouver, BC on August 29th will go on sale April 18th, along with the majority of the remaining tour dates in both Canada and the U.S. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to see AC/DC on their return North American tour. With the European dates already selling out months in advance, these new dates won’t be far behind.

Hot off the heels of their own Black Ice World Tour, AC/DC returns to North America with brand new tour dates for the summer. Looking to continue the electrifying success of their tour that garnered them the “Major Tour of the Year” award at the 20th annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards, AC/DC will begin with a show in Foxborough, MA at Gillette Stadium and will continue west across North America.

Riding on the success of Black Ice, their newest album and first in over 8 years, and having it become certified Double Platinum in the U.S., the group’s ability to put on an amazing show cannot be questioned. With stops in most major Canadian cities, there is little reason to miss out on a concert like this.

Like A Vancouver Virgin….

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

BIG Concert Announcement this morning! Madonna is coming to Vancouver! While hard to believe, it will be “her madgesty’s” first stop in our fine city and she will be joining the ranks of the Rolling Stones, U2 and Pink Floyd by playing BC Place! While I haven’t been much of a Madonna fan for the past, oh, 20 years or so…I have to admit, part of me really wants to go. I mean, I’ve never been to a pop concert and if there was one I was going to go to, she would probably be the one to see. With all the stage set-ups, costume changes, dancers and lord knows what else that goes on at a Madonna concert, I’m sure it would at the very least be entertaining! Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 24th at 10 am and range in price from $55 to $350.
