Victoria Rocks the Classics
Spring will bring more than March blossoms and April showers to Victoria.
Within one week in March, the city will get its classic rock groove on with three concerts from powerhouse bands Chicago, YES and Texas blues-rockers ZZ Top, all performing downtown at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
Chicago, the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six decades, gets things rolling March 16. And as a band that has toured every year since first taking the stage, audiences are sure to be in for a treat!
An Evening with YES next fills the arena March 19, when the Grammy-winning English rock band brings its “Triple-Header Concert Tour” to the Victoria stage, performing three classic albums in their entirety, Close to the Edge, Going for the One and The Yes Album.
ZZ Top rounds out the rock & roll extravaganza March 21 as the band celebrates more than 40 years of bringing their unique brand of rock, blues and boogie to the masses.
Just for Laughs!
Victorians love their comedy, so it’s no wonder that the Just for Laughs crew makes the Capital a regular stop during their treks across the country.
Coming up March 18 is Just For Laughs Festival alumnus and Breaking Bad star Bill Burr, playing the the Royal Theatre following sold-out shows in Vancouver.
Fellow Just for Laughs vet Danny Bhoy hits the Royal Theatre stage April 5, where his natural gift for storytelling combined with a razor-sharp wit has made him a local favourite on his previous Victoria visits.
