Darpan News Desk, 22 May, 2019
  • PNE Fair releases 2019 entertainment lineup

Once again, British Columbia’s most beloved summer event is showcasing a diverse entertainment lineup featuring appearances by internationally acclaimed musicians and performers as well as custom designed programming created specifically for the PNE Fair!

Summer Night Concerts
PNE Fair goers will enjoy sensational performances this year featuring some of music history’s biggest names in Pop, Rock, and R&B.

The Summer Night Concerts will run every evening the Fair is open, starting on Saturday August 17th in the PNE Amphitheatre, and are FREE with admission. Superfans can acquire reserved seating at each of the shows: visit www.pne.ca for more details.

None other than everybody’s favourite rock legend Billy Idol is gracing the PNE summer concert stage for the first time ever. STYX, who has more than four decades of barn-burning chart hits to draw from, will be performing as well. Another superstar joining the PNE summer concert line-up for the first time is Smokey Robinson, a former record executive and legendary R&B artist who has been inducted into the Kennedy Center for his countless contributions to the music scene.

Mötley Crüe fans won’t be disappointed as the sultry sounds of Vince Neil, their lead singer and frontman, is part of the PNE concert billing this season performing all the Motley Crue hits. Returning to represent the Great White North again this year, is Canadian rock legend Burton Cummings who will bring his world-class talent to entertain PNE Fair crowds. And for the first time ever, the PNE Fair welcomes iconic Canadian country-rock band Blue Rodeo. Canadian Blues icon Colin James is also coming back to the PNE this year.

On top of the great Canadian talent this year, the PNE Fair is ecstatic to announce the return of Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famers ZZ Top on their 50th Anniversary Tour. No summer concert series would be complete without the inclusion of The Beach Boys.

But it’s not just the rock fans who can get their fill at the Summer Nights Concerts, R&B legends TLC will be closing out the series playing all their hits on their 25th anniversary tour. The four-time GRAMMY®Award-winning group will dazzle the crowd with iconic hits like Waterfalls, No Scrubs and Creep.

Returning after their capacity-crowd concert performance last year is I Love the 90’s but this time with a whole new lineup. Vanilla Ice, Montell Jordan, Biz Markie and Rob Base will be bringing the house down with their hits. And joining the 90s hit train will be 90s rock icons Collective Soul and Gin. R&B and hip-hop fans are going to get all they can handle thanks to Hammer’s House Party. Legendary acts MC Hammer and Bobby Brown are bringing all their chart-topping, club-favourite hits.  This year’s summer concerts roster wouldn’t be complete without the addition of R&B vocal group 98 Degrees. Finally, world-renowned reggae stars UB40 are marking their 40th anniversary with a world tour.
