MONCTON, New Brunswick (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Moncton City council has moved to try to make the Magnetic Hill concert site more attractive to touring artists by enhancing its amenities.
According to the Canadian Press, the Council has approved the acquisition of a number of modular buildings to serve as backstage and box office structures for the outdoor facility.
A company can supply and install eight of them for $325,000.
City Hall's Ian Fowler said that making the site more "user-friendly" will hopefully lead to increased activity in the form of concerts and community events.
Originally built for a 1984 visit by his holiness, The Pope, the site played host to a major concert by the Stones in 2005. This year, the Eagles are set to play there in August. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
