Well the weather hasn’t been reminiscent of Stampede lately, but with just 38 days left until Stampede 2010, there’s a lot of exciting stuff coming up to get you in the Stampede spirit. Hopefully the weather will be much nicer by then. In the meantime, let’s find out What’s Happening at Stampede Park this week.
This week is all about music.
- Nickelback- Grammy nominated and Billboard Magazine’s ‘Group of the Decade’ return to Calgary with their 2010 Dark Horse tour. Opening for Nickelback are special guests Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown and Sick Puppies. To find last minute tickets for the show tonight go here.
- RAIN – A Tribute to the Beatles- The award-winning Beatles concert, RAIN – A Tribute to the Beatles, boasts a repertoire of nearly 200 Beatlemaniac favorites. RAIN covers the Fab Four from their very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through the Abbey Road album, through the psychedelic late ’60′s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. Thursday June 3 at 8:00 p.m. at the Saddledome. For more information go here.
