MAJOR CONCERT PLANNED FOR MOSAIC STADIUM

The City of Regina and Evraz Place say a major concert will be happening at new Mosaic Stadium at the end of May called Regina Rocks Mosaic Stadium.

Mayor Michael Fougere announced Bryan Adams, Our Lady Peace and Johnny Reid will be performing in the inaugural concert at the new stadium on May 27.

Fougere says booking these artists will give new Mosaic Stadium a great test run.

The test event aims to fill the venue at 75% of its 33,000-person capacity.

The first test event at Mosaic Stadium was a football game between the University of Regina Rams and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on October 1.

A total of 16,500 fans turned out for that event.

The last test event will be a Saskatchewan Roughriders preseason game on June 10 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The team's regular season home opener is on July 1 against the Blue Bombers.

To each their own.

Somehow this promotion reminds me of the turkey drop in WKRP. Rod, it's too bad they didn't get you to line up George Straight.

We'll be there - Trews/Weezer were in Saskatoon last Friday, then the Brandt Center popped for the 90s show.

I know when I think of "Rock" as in "Regina Rocks", the first person that comes to mind is Johnny Reid.

I see that the Peanut Gallery is out in full force! Vote with your Pocket Book. If you do not like the Acts, than you do not have to go! Its that simple!

What most people don't appear to understand is the Riders have a small window of opportunity for the final test event. There are only so many performers on tour in this area at any given time and there's a budget to be mindful of. There will be many great concerts in the future.

Ha all the deleted comments make me laugh, why are so many bent out of shape over this?? It's only a test concert, I mean I wouldn't call it major but hey it's nothing to get upset about...c'mon people grow up!

WRONG! They had a HUGE window of opportunity to plan a "major" concert event as the test events were planned shortly after shovels went in the ground. Nice try tho apologist

@mrt_man said...

I think the rockers who go might just be pleasantly surprised by Johnny Red. He puts on a pretty good show!

Not the most major thing I have heard of but problem no need for it to be, as people would probably go either way. Hopefully they get some nice weather.

It's the entitled society we live in. Bunch of spoiled cry babies. Glass half empty type of people.

This isn't a Riders event. It is a City of Regina event.

In fact I heard the City didn't want to do one but the Riders made them so there was another test event before the preseason game.

Any one ever buy a car without taking it for a test drive? The way the trolls are responding you'd think this is the only concert to be held at New Mosaic. U of R Ram games none of the concessions were open,the video board was not operating and the upper decks was not used. For this second event construction should be complete and we'll see how things go. If I remember correctly Three Dog Night was the first major concert at Saskatchewan Place in Saskatoon.

As taxpayers we're paying for the bloody thing we should have a right to comment on what goes on there... Coldplay Metallica and the Chili Peppers are jumping right over our great province...WHY? Garauntee them some decent cash and they'll come ..Cmon Evraz the people deserve it!

Who gets the profits from any concerts held at the new stadium, I assume it's the city who manages the stadium.

We will see if Regina can sell it out

Relax people. They need to see how the stadium performs at or near capacity. I'd wager that tickets won't be too pricey so go, check the place out and have fun.

guy comes to a private blog and complains.

Guess what bud, your "rights and freedoms" don't apply here. If you want to be heard start a blog!

Then he brings up ColdPlay, who are jumping our province in September not May and the Red Hot Chili Peppers who play the night before and the night after the announced concert. And Metallica when Guns and Roses is still trying to sell tickets a month later.

Who is this guy? Smarten up.
