Summer Night Concerts at the Fair at the PNE
This year’s lineup for the Summer Night Concerts at the Fair at the PNE has been announced. As in past year’ there is pretty much something for every taste. This year’s acts run the gamut from classic rock through to R&B, and contemporary pop and rock, and as usual, the list is heavy on nostalgia
The 80’s and 90’s are well represented with a cross section of acts including the Goo Goo Dolls, Cindy Lauper and Wilson Phillips, as well as Kool and The Gang and the Village People. For those looking to see a whole bunch of artists in one night there are a couple great options. On August 23rd, the I Love the 90’s tour features Salt-N-Pepa with Spinderella, All-4-One, Color Me Badd, and Young MC. For those who like their music a decade older the Lost 80s night on August 26th features A lock of Seagulls, Men without Hats amongst others.
Classic rock favourites Chicago and Air Supply are also appearing, and there are a couple of couple of nights dedicated to R&B with Boyz II Men and 112 (feat. Slim).
There will also be plenty of homegrown content. Jann Arden and Burton Cummings are both performing, as well as BC country singer Dean Brody, and Vancouver’s own Marianas Trench.
