Vancouver Awaits Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, Alice Cooper and Other Music Legends
by Staff Writer

If you are lucky enough to snag tickets to the Paul McCartney concert at BC Place Stadium held on November 25, you might just be the envy of all your friends.  Then again, you might just be the type to try to make a few bucks off the concert by reselling your tickets on either Craigslist or as a hawker outside the stadium.

Certainly if you are the reseller type, don’t tell that to all of  McCartney’s legion of fans who helped sell out the concert in record time.  The very old may remember that McCartney was part of the Fab Four aka The Beatles which caused the city to reach a feverish high with their arrival at Empire Stadium in 1964.

Although he’s older now and has been succeeding as a solo act for decades, McCartney will certainly play old favorites as well as new ones.  His Vancouver concert will end a near 50-year absence. One wonders what took him so long to come back.

Vancouver is not the only stop for the On the Run Tour. McCartney also plays Edmonton November 28.

If you don’t have tickets to the McCartney concert, don’t worry.  He’s not the only show in town.

Among the talents coming to Vancouver this month include Leonard Cohen, Alice Cooper, Steve Winwood,  Air Supply, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Rush and other notables. Before you spend your Christmas money on presents, you might need to set aside some cash for some favorite concert t-shirts that aren’t priced cheap. See your local ticket outlet for prices and times.

More modesty priced shows are available at smaller venues, such as the Media Club, the Biltmore Hotel,  the Venue, the Vogue Theatre or the retro Waldorf Hotel where you can hear an eclectic mix of music ranging from rap, electronica rap, metal or rock.

The best thing about the music scene in Vancouver is that it can be as affordable as you want it to be. If I can’t afford to go to some pricier concerts, I will opt to choose smaller clubs like the Waldorf Hotel which recently hosted Faust, a band with a long history of innovative and industrial sound.

If you head out to see a concert or see a band, don’t forget to bring earplugs and your dancing feet.
