Question for Canuckistani music fans

    My wife's been a huge Our Lady Peace fan since long before I've known her, but she's never been able to see them live in concert (despite some near misses worthy of a bad movie script).

    They'll be in Regina on July 25, which is within driving distance, but tickets don't go on sale until July 5.

    I'm not a music fan in general, and I don't know much about these guys or their concerts, so I'm not sure how fast they'd sell out there. Should I be able to log in the morning they go on sale and be confident of finding tickets, or should I be warning her not to get her hopes up?

    I guess it ultimately depends on the venue - do you know where in Regina they'll be playing? I tried to find out on the interwebs but couldn't.

    I would think they've played Regina enough times that you can be confident of getting tickets the day they go on sale, but I do know they're releasing their new album on July 21 and there may be a pretty good crowd anxious to see them/hear the new tunes.

    It just got announced on facebook today, I don't know how long it will take for it to be up on other places. The venue just says "Wascana Park." I vaguely know that's the big park that runs through the middle of town, but I don't know if it's got a regular concert venue.

    That's where the Regina Symphony Orchestra plays, but I have no idea what the capacity is there.

    Okay, because I'm an awesome husband, I've been googling this all night. It looks like they've been booked for something called the Sasktel Summer Invasion festival, which is apparently some kind of skateboarding/extreme sports sort of event. It'll just be an outdoor park concert. Last year they had two bands called Hedley and Seether, neither of whom I've heard of, but that doesn't mean much because I'm not cool.

    I guess it doesn't matter, because unless it turns into a scalpfest in the four-digit range, I'm finding a way to get her into that concert.

    I am so disappointed the answer to the question wasn't "Honeymoon Suite."

    What does it take?

    You'll have no problem getting tickets. OLP has been around the country enough that people have seen them, and they're not as big a ticket as they were five or 10 years ago. Besides, if it's a park-style event, you're probably just buying a weekend pass that includes all the shows anyhow. It's like going to the Calgary Stampede, except marginally better free acts.
