We are pleased to announce that Blue Rodeo will be performing on Saturday night from 8:00 - 9:30 during the “Blast from the Past” Homecoming Weekend.  This event is being sponsored by the Town of Perth.

Tickets for the Blue Rodeo are SOLD OUT
 

The Blue Rodeo concert will take place at the Perth Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 23, 2016. The gates will open at 6 p.m., with an expected concert start time of 8 p.m. It will be a 90-minute show.
The General Admission tickets means it's a fee paid to an unreserved seating/standing area. We'll have a BYOLC (Bring Your Own Lawn Chair) section for those who wish to sit. The remaining section will be left for those who wish to stand and/or dance-like-nobody's-watching for the concert.
The VIP section will be located on a separate stage, close to the performance concert. The VIP section will include seating, be located close to the stage, cash bar service, one complimentary drink ticket, reserved washroom access, and light food service.
The concert itself will be outdoors with a Stageline staging area for Blue Rodeo. There won't be an opening act, as we're encouraging everyone to come to the Fairgrounds earlier to enjoy a meal and live, local music and ribs at the BBQ Block Party (which will be located on the other side of the Fairgrounds). You can then make your way over to the Blue Rodeo concert area.
It will be a licensed event, but age of majority is not required to attend the concert.
