Billy Joel Calgary bound
Pop icon Billy Joel will return to Calgary for the first time in 17 years for a concert at the Saddledome on Nov. 5, promoters announced Monday.
Joel, whose last jaunt into Calgary on Aug. 2, 1990 sold out with 17,000 fans packing the Saddledome, is hoping for the same bit of magic as he promotes his latest album, All My Life, his first new piece of pop music since 1993's Grammy nominated River of Dreams.
Tickets for this show are $149, $99 and $69 plus service charges, available at Ticketmaster Sept. 21 after 10 a.m. No opening guest for this concert has yet been announced.
Just got Ween tix!! They were killer last time. Thanks for the heads up whoever posted. It was hard to find the tickets. Its not listed on Flames central, and its not listed properly on ticketmaster. but its Pure Guava now!
Looks like they could rival the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver with the set-up they have, but how is the sound?
Not even close. The Commodore is far superior for a live music event. I say that wishing it wasn't true. For years I have been hoping that something similair to the Commodore would open in Calgary. The new Mac Hall certainly didn't live up to expectations.
Final Fantasy - is that the guy who does crazy looping things with....some string instrument? I can't recall.
That would be him.
I currently have tickets to Built to Spill, Final Fantasy and Video Games Live and I'm probably going to get tickets to Sunet Rubdown. I'd like to get tickets to The New Pornographers, Do Make Say Think and The Weakerthans but I just don't have the time/cash.
