Soccer fans – it’s time to dig out that jersey, scarf and crazy hat again! Today marks 100 more sleeps until the world’s finest female soccer players meet on the pitch for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. For host Canada, it will truly be a national affair with matches held in six different cities (Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Moncton). Tickets for all 52 matches are now on sale.
The action begins on June 6, 2015 with Matches 1 and 2 taking place at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium. The World Cup final will be held on July 5 at Vancouver’s BC Place stadium.
A total of 24 countries will participate in this year’s World Cup. In front of their home fans, the Canadian women will look to build on their bronze medal result from the 2012 Olympics, and erase bad memories of their last-place performance at the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany. Defending champions Japan kick off their tournament June 8 at BC Place.
American rockers Dave Matthews Band have a tradition of touring America every summer, and this year is no different. Tickets to their 2015 run – including a September 1st Vancouver date – are now on sale.
There’s been plenty of speculation over the past few months, and an appearance in the Grammys is always a sign of things to come. Today legendary Australian band AC/DC finally delivered on those rumors by announcing 13 North American tour dates in the fall. The band released its latest album Rock or Bust in November 2014, its first since 2008’s Black Ice.
Tickets for the new tour go on sale next week. The 13-date stadium tour features 7 Canadian stops, including Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Edmonton.
