There is always an energy when you enter a venue for an Arkells show – people are genuinely excited, they know that the band is going to put on a show that they won’t forget and the feeling is contagious. Walking into Budweiser Gardens I was impressed to see the show was near sold out and the anticipation for the adventure of the evening kicked-in.
It’s September 1st, which means the event season is just around the corner. As we gear up to host thousands of fans at upcoming London Knights games and major events, we wanted to take this time to highlight some upgrades that were made over the course of the summer.
Canada just celebrated its 150th birthday, and Budweiser Gardens considers it its duty to look back at and celebrate all of the Canadian artists that have played the venue over the years.
I must premise this review by saying Cirque du Soleil’s OVO is an absolutely amazing show. I am so thankful that Budweiser Gardens gave me the opportunity to attend the show with my family and friends. We got to Budweiser Gardens and were told that our seats were being upgraded to the 100 level when we previously had picked up 300 level seats. This was great news for us and we looked forward to having even closer seats. The new seats were perfect and located on the side of the side. When entering the arena, the stage is set with a massive ‘ovo’ (egg) and there are characters walking around the room with bug catcher nets and little fluttering butterflies making it already unique from any other show.
