Vancouver is a world-class city with world-class concerts. Take a look at the listings every month and you’ll see a veritable who’s who of music coming through town. Just to prove that, here are a few of the big names coming through town in February!
Close your eyes. Imagine what “rock and roll” sounds like. While rock music is many things, there is a good chance that you imagined Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band. Characterized by a uniquely American working class perspective, a gruff voice that manages to be soothing at the same time and some truly classic riffs, the magic of Bob Seger is greater than the sum of the parts that make him and his band one of the most vital elements of classic rock. There’s a reason Seger has sold over 53 million albums and earned 13 platinum and 7 multi-platinum albums, including such Beautiful Loser, Live Bullet, Night Moves, Stranger in Town, Against the Wind and Nine Tonight; he’s one of the greatest in the business, helping to define what would eventually be known as “classic rock.”
Seger will be taking to the stage on February 7 at Rogers Arena. Come work on your night moves.
Doug and The Slugs aren’t what you’d call “a household name” (unless you grew up in an AWESOME HOUSE), but they are an incredible part of Canadian music! Formed in 1977, Doug and The Slugs had a series of minor hits throughout the 80s, creating a fantastic New Wave sound that resembled bigger hits like The Cars and The Talking Heads while channelling and infectious sense of humour that rivalled that of DEVO or They Might Be Giants! Chances are you’ve heard hits like “Too Bad” and “Makin’ It Work” before and would find yourself singing along without even knowing who the band is! They’re returning to the Commodore Ballroom stage on February 2nd for what is sure to be a trip back through the 80s!
