Musical Entertainment

December 16, 2009

Something that is really neat for the 2010 Games is that there will be a band performing at medal ceremonies throughout the games. We have tickets to the medal ceremony the night that Trooper and Loverboy are there... Scott's not overly happy but my dad thinks it's awesome! haha! So, here's a list of the performers:

BC Place - Nelly Furtado, Barenaked Ladies, Paul Brandt, Hedley, Theory of a Deadman, Stereophonics, Trooper and Loverboy, Billy Talent, INXS, Burton Cummings, Great Big Sea

Whistler - All American Rejects, Estelle, Pierre Lapointe, Feist, Our Lady Peace, Deadmau5, Hedley, Stars, OneRepublic, The Fray, Jet, The Roots.

Richmond - Our Lady Peace, Hawksley Workman, Marianas Trench, Bedouin Soundclash, Wintersleep and Tokyo Police Club.

Of these bands, I would have really enjoyed seeing: Hedly, All American Rejects, Feist, Our Lady Peace, Stars, OneRepublic, The Fray (who we might get to see, we are in Whistler the night they perform) and Tokyo Police Club.

I was curious about previous games and if they had as much musical entertainment as 2010 will have, and really, didn't come up with much.

2006 - Avril Lavigne, Elisa (Italian singer) & Ricky Martin

2002- Kiss, Yo Yo Ma, R. Kelly, Christina Aguilera, Sting, Dianne Reeves, Harry Connick Jr., Dave Matthews Band, 'N Sync, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Dixie Chicks, Josh Groban, Charlotte Church.

Weird mixture of genres in 2002. I think if I HAD to see one of those acts, I'd pick Sting in a heartbeat.

I will now leave you with a classic from Trooper and Loverboy :)
