NIAGARA FALLS (July 4, 2017) ‒ The Scotiabank Convention Centre (SCCN) is pleased to announce the start of a new concert series Live by the Falls.
Well-known as a space for hosting meetings, conferences and conventions, the Niagara region’s largest event facility brings several years of experience to this new entertainment program. “Since opening in 2011, the Scotiabank Convention Centre team has worked with many different clients to produce concerts and events featuring a wide array of bands and artists” said Noel Buckley, President and General Manager. He also made specific reference to a partnership with the locally-based Niagara Concerts, who put on live performances in the venue’s Fallsview Theatre for three consecutive seasons. A few noteworthy musical guests to have played the Scotiabank Convention Centre are Jarvis Church, Tim Hicks, Chantal Kreviazuk and most recently Big Sugar.
Live by the Falls’ inaugural series will include concerts by an all-Canadian cast of performers, covering the more mainstream genres of rock, folk and blues. The Cowboy Junkies are confirmed to play on September 16, followed by The Trews on October 21, David Usher on November 24 and finally Gowan on December 7.
“The desire to see live concerts and performances in a local venue is just tremendous here in Niagara. With a venue that’s easily accessible to all of Niagara and literally just steps away from the Falls, we know we offer a very good option to feed the region’s appetite for great music” mentioned Buckley.
Tickets for Live by the Falls officially go on sale on Friday July 14, and are available on an individual concert basis or as a 4-show subscription. Subscription holders enjoy a full range of special privileges, including exclusive entry to a pre-show VIP Lounge, preferred seat selection, complimentary parking, and priority access to pre-sale tickets for future Live by the Falls events.
