What’s happening and coming to Montreal – Jurassic World, rock concerts and more

Jurassic World

It seems that whenever we’re done with upcoming concerts to reach Montreal for the remainder of 2023, new shows are constantly being added to this growing list. Here are the latest must-see,  ready-to-rock shows coming our way in ’23.

Former founding member of Genesis and rock music legend in his own right Peter Gabriel will be performing at the Bell Centre on September 13 as part of the North American leg of his i/o Tour. Not only will he be performing songs from his impressive catalogue of his solo work, but also tunes from his forthcoming album i/o, in which a new song from that album will be released to the public on the full moon of each month. March’s full moon selection will be the song “Playing For Time”. Tickets go on sale as of March 10 via www.evenko.ca or www.LiveNation.com.

The ideal 70s soul flashback takes place at the Bell Centre on August 9, as superstars Lionel Richie and Earth, Wind and Fire team up for their 20-city Sing A Song All Night Long Tour of North America. From “September” to “Dancing on the Ceiling” to “Let’s Groove” to “All Night Long” this promises to be a double-barrelled night of unforgettable soul music. Tickets go on sale as of March 13 through www.evenko.ca.

Fans of heavy metal music should not miss Megadeth’s Crush The World Tour, as it makes a stop at the Place Bell in Laval on May 11. Fresh from their recent sold out show at the famed Budokan Arena in Tokyo, Japan, Megadeth will be joined by special guests Bullet For My Valentine and Oni for an evening of loud and proud heavy metal music. Tickets go on sale starting March 9 at www.evenko.ca.

And although this is not a rock music show per se, the featured performers are like rock stars in their own way. For six performances between September 8 and 10, and 65 million years in the making, Jurassic World comes from the movie screen to the stage of the Bell Centre as part of its live tour. Audiences will experience Jurassic World as they are magically sent to the dense jungles of Isla Nublar, where 24 film-accurate, life-sized dinosaurs from the successful movie franchise make their home, such as the Velociraptor Blue, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Bumpy from the Netflix series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. All of the prehistoric creatures that are featured in the show are operated by animatronics and performers.

And any audience member who arrives an hour before show time will be treated to a special pre-show experience. This includes getting to see the Jurassic World dinosaurs and vehicles up close, as well as photo opps with the Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Baby Bumpy. Tickets go on sale as of March 14 by going to www.evenko.ca orwww.ticketmaster.com.
