Canada Day Weekend 2015

I’m a big fan of 80’s music from Canada so I thought i’d list a few events that you might want to like to attend this weekend.

Platinum Blonde and The Spoons will be performing tonight at the It’s Your Festival in Hamilton, Ontario. The free concert starts at 6pm at Gage Park, 1000 Main St E. But I suggest that you get there earlier to get the best seats.

Alan Frew of Glass Tiger will be performing various 80’s and 90’s classics tonight at Woah Canada ! in Moncton, New Brunswick. This free concert will be held at Riverside Park on Assumption Blvd. But if you happen to miss him, you can catch him on Saturday at Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax, Nova Scotia. And note that you can actually get free admission to the latter with PC Points.

Honeymoon Suite and Helix will also be performing in New Brunswick, at Pioneer Days in Oromocto on July 2nd at 9pm. Tickets to this event are $30.

Barney Bentall will be performing at Canada Place at 2:30pm this afternoon in Vancouver. The main stage is located at 999 Canada Place and Scottish pop star Sheena Easton will perform right after him.

Tom Cochrane & Red Rider will be also playing nearby at the Cloverdale Amphitheater in Surrey, B.C at 9PM. This is also a free concert. And if you miss this one, you can always catch them in Vernon, BC on Saturday at 8pm, at the Predator Ridge Resort (301 Village Centre Place).

The Grapes of Wrath will be performing in Calgary, Alberta at the free Canada Day celebrations. The stage will be located on Riverfront Avenue and the concerts will be starting at 7pm.

I will of course update this listing if I find some more concerts.
