      If you’re attending a Summer Night Concert at the PNE this week, be sure to take a moment to savour the atmosphere at the PNE Amphitheatre. 

      The iconic outdoor venue is set to be demolished at the close of 2023 PNE Fair, according to a release, to make way for “a new world-class venue”—which has been planned for years at this point, and is “anticipated to be one of the most impressive venues of it kind in North America when completed in 2026.”

      The amphitheatre was first constructed back in 1964, meaning that it is falling just a year shy of its 60th birthday.

      Those hoping to enjoy one last show at the venue will have ample opportunity, as seven shows are set for the next seven days of the PNE Summer Night Concert Series. 

      Here’s the lineup: 

      • Tuesday, August 29 – Pink Martini featuring China Forbes
      • Wednesday, August 30  - Doug and the Slugs with the VSO
      • Thursday, August 31 – Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo
      • Friday, September 1 – Jason Derulo
      • Saturday, September 2 – Stars of Drag (featuring Crystal Methyd, Alyssa Edwards, Raja, and more)
      • Sunday, September 3 – Walk Off The Earth
      • Monday, September 4 – Blue Rodeo: 30 Years in July

      Tickets to these concerts are available here.
