    Re: Grey Cup 2018!

    If ticketmasters site is accurate, there are currently only approx. 300 seats left in the lower bowl. Still a bunch in the uppers though, but wow - sales appear to be brisk today.

    Re: Grey Cup 2018!

    Just did another quick check on ticketmaster - only singles by the looks of it left in the lower bowl (190 total)
    Upper deck, still a good number of seats, but if you're looking for two together, all that is left are up in the corners - not much available below row 70.

    Re: Grey Cup 2018!

    Sounds like the half time act is gonna be announced on Wednesday.

    Regarding the Saturday concert series - I've been to a few Grey Cups where the likes of Trooper were the musical acts. Everybody seemed to be having a good time regardless of age. Of course they were all football fans to begin with, so that's what you do at Grey Cups.

    The best half-time show was Lenny Kravitz.

    Re: Grey Cup 2018!

    I certainly understand. Suggestions on what bands you would book for that event?

    Remember, it's already costing 75 bucks to get in with these bands. Anything popular and current could drive up the event pricing for fans. That could limit options.

    Are any other events announced? Any any bands performing at the Street Festival through the week?

    If the CFL is trying to sell the game to a younger generation with the half-time entertainment then I suspect they're barking up the wrong tree. I never understand what the fuss is about the half-time show as I spend the half-time walking about, getting a drink, using the facilities, giving my keester a rest. Then again, I'm not an event guy, just a football fan.

    Personally, I thought Imagine Dragons in 2014 was the best halftime show of the live Cups I've been to. Some people I talked to really liked Fall Out Boy in 2015.

    Granted, all of these artists have one thing in common.
    They're not Canadian.

    So..... does it matter to the people here if the halftime show is Canadian or not? Nobody bats an eye if U2 or Paul McCartney plays the Super Bowl, but they're not American....

    I could care less if there are Canadian artists at the half time show. The reality is that there are not enough good Canadian artists out there. I prefer international acts.

    I think the Imagine Dragons were probably the best half time show ever. For this year, I hope they continue in that same vein...artists like Twenty One Pilots, Halsey or if you are looking to go Canadian, the Weeknd would be good choices.

    My fear is that because they have waited this long to announce the half time show, that they are struggling to get a name act to perform.

    I believe it gets announced Wednesday.
    Don't care where the talent is born and raised - just put on a good show.
    And maybe because I was there, but my vote goes to Imagine Dragons for best half time show as well.

    Great suggestions for half time acts. I suspect that the shine for an artist performing at the Grey Cup has worn off and big $ needs to be there to lure any respectable current talent. Considering Universal Music sponsored the Thursday Night Concert Series on TSN, I would guess that the half time act will come from their roster of artists.

    Twenty One Pilots do have a new record coming out next month...

    Finish US tour Nov. 21, then start a tour in Australia on Dec 7. Logistically would be possible. My daughters would lose their sh!t if this was the half time show. However, they are not a Universal Music artist.

    Looking back, all half time artists recently have been Universal artists. Halsey, Hozier, The Lumineers and the Weeknd are Univeral Music artists that seem like a possibility. But sadly, so is Nickelback....

    Anyways, fun to speculate. Sounds like we'll maybe find out tomorrow.

    Re: Grey Cup 2018!

    And of course nobody complains about the Superbowl halftime show not being an American. It [B]IS[B] the World Championship after all...

    Imagine Dragons sucked... Enjoyed Gordon Lightfoot more and that isn't saying much. Could care less if they're Canadian or not, I'm not there for the halftime show so not a really huge deal...I'm there for the football! As long as there's beer and earplugs I'm good to go.
    Sorry everyone for not contributing anything to this board... My bad?

    Gotta avoid the concourse at half time at all costs. Commonwealth has a very poor set up to deal with a full house like the Grey Cup.

    It's designed for Grey Cups. The more people you pack in there the warmer it is.

    Agree with the above on the Imagine Dragons halftime show in BC Place. That wasn’t just a performance, it was an experience.

    Whoever it is, I just want an upbeat, blood pumping show. Nothing kills the mojo of a grey cup game like a love ballad or cheesy pop song.

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    who are those fools? (30 yr old i am) you want a younger core fanbase to build? this wont do it.

    Rhodes is gonna give a halftime show for the announcement of the grey cup half time show on the Wpg game half time show so you can have a half time show.
