With the London Knights and London Lightning done for the season do you ever wonder what’s going on at Budweiser Gardens during the summer? Surely everyone who works there must take the entire summer off, right?! Think again. Preparing for the season takes a lot of preparation and hard work and the summer is the time when all the planning happens for the upcoming months. This is the time when we confirm most of our shows for the fall, winter and spring and all departments are involved with getting a show on sale.
Reliving my teen years with Corey Hart and Glass Tiger last night at Budwieser Gardens!
In 1985 my best friend and I waited all night and all day in the blazing sun to get up front at the Corey Hart concert at London Gardens. My friend got heat stroke and after treatment from medical, we spent the rest of the concert sitting at the back. It was still one of my favourite concerts. Corey was so sweet and passionate. Flash forward to 2019 at Budweiser Gardens in a comfy air-conditioned arena and Corey is still just a sweet and lovely as ever.
The Illusionists Live! On the Start.ca stage at Budweiser Gardens was an incredibly magical evening, pun intended. I was never that kid who wanted to learn card tricks, who wanted to be a daredevil or who wanted to grow up to be a magician. But I can sincerely say that I am now an adult to wants to do all of those things.
You really could not ask for a more spectacular night out than seeing Kinky Boots the Musical. Of course it’s a story about being who you were truly meant to be but it’s also a story about overcoming adversities. And not just adversities that you face while trying to rebuild a failing business but also those you face while trying to live authentically in a world that tells you to fall in line and to blend in with the ‘norm.’ Kinky Boots the Musical makes you question what is ‘normal’ anyway and who decided on these arbitrary rules? This show will make you realize just how much life there is to live once you shed societal pressures and decide to live your truth, whatever that truth may be.
