The grande lady is about to return to Toronto. Yes, the CNE is almost here. I was going thru the list of Musicians which will be performing at the Bandshell Stage. The official list can be found by clicking the following: the official CNE Bandshell page.
They had posted their list in alphabetical order. I plan things around dates and so I thought that I would post the list of concerts in Date order.
DATE Band to perform at the Bandshell Stage
August 16 The Proclaimers
August 17 The New Pornographers
August 18 The Beach Boys with Brothers Dube
August 21 Fab 5
August 22 5th Dimension
August 23 Lou Gramm (Voice of Foreigner)
August 24 USS with ill Scarlet
August 25 Dragonette with Dirty Radio
August 27 Mia Martina & Danny Fernandes & Massari August 28 Big Wreck
August 29 Frankie Avalon
August 30 Walk off the Earth
August 31 Theory Of A Deadman
There are a few dates which are still empty. Please check the official CNE pagefor conformation before heading down to catch any of the shows.
Some of the dates seem to indicate the opening act, while others do not. The list above is subject to change without notice. Always refer to the official CNE website for confirmation.
On Aug 27, entrance into the CNE grounds will be Free till 3PM only to those who are 19 and under. That’s free entry from 10am till 3pm if you are 19 years of age or under and “ONLY” on Tuesday Aug 27th. Please confirm this before heading there on Aug 27 by visiting the official CNE page detailing that day (Aug 27th).
Really nice to see the CNE continuing the tradition of offering great concerts. Hope that this post is of help. Have fun at The EX.
UPDATE Aug 19: Removed my added info about the MUDMEN concerts at the Midway Stage, which were held on Aug 16, 17 & 18. Since that event is over, there is no point in leaving that info and possibly confusing someone.
UPDATE Aug 20: Just checked the CNE website again and now all their concert listings are in Date order. Last week they were in Alphabetic order of the names of the Bands. Their Midway Stage concerts are now also in Date order. Good move by the CNE, even though it makes this post redundant.
