Winter Garden May Host Concerts And Live Events

EDMONTON, B.C. (CelebrityAccess) — Winter Garden, the 'grand entrance' to the under construction Rogers Place arena, may play host to concerts and live events on non-game days. The news follows the announcement earlier this week that Live Nation Canada had been named as the preferred promoter for Rogers Place.

“We’re in discussions — and this would be further out from the opening of Rogers Place — to eventually bring large events to Edmonton and conventions. Winter Garden would certainly play a big role in becoming a trade show space,” Susan Darrington, general manager of Rogers Place told Edmonton Metro News.

Winter Gardens, which is scheduled to open in September, is a multi-use public space that will feature 1,250 TV monitors, a giant scoreboard and video screen, and a 50-metre mosaic art piece.

“It’s an incredibly exciting space. As a front door, there’s nothing like it in sports and entertainment like it that I’ve seen before. It’s a really large space that’s going to be exciting for fans,” Darrington said. – Staff Writers
