Do your best man duties have you searching for a bachelor-worthy experience in Buffalo? Look no further than the Canalside Live concert series. This is your ticket to the hottest music at the coolest venue this summer, and a VIP experience will guarantee this will be a night the boys will remember.
With a diverse line-up of acts from various genres, there’s something for everyone at Canalside Live. Gather the groomsmen and plan on an evening of live music on Buffalo’s picturesque waterfront.
Canalside is the heart of the Buffalo waterfront revival. By day, the boardwalk and great lawn host fitness classes, group activities, cultural festivals and family fun. But as night falls on select evenings throughout the summer, music lovers make their way downtown for a live music tradition that dates back to 1987 (formerly known as Thursday at the Square).
There’s still time to catch some big acts listed on the 2018 Canalside Live line-up:
- Saturday, July 7 – Vanilla Ice & Dwayne Gretzky
- Thursday, July 12 – Arrested Development
- Thursday, July 19 –Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band & Beth Hart Band
- Thursday, July 26 – Father John Misty & Lucy Dacus
- Thursday, August 2 – Dark Star Orchestra
- Thursday, August 9 – Headstones & The Glorious Sons
- Friday, August 17 – The Mighty Mighty Bosstones & The Lowest of the Low
Tickets for all shows can be purchased on Eventbrite.com, at all 17 Western New York Consumer’s Beverages locations, and at the Information Kiosk located on the boardwalk at Canalside. All tickets purchased at Consumer’s and at the boardwalk include a complimentary beverage voucher for redemption at the concert.
Better yet, treat the boys (aged 21 and up) to a VIP experience. For $35 you’ll get private entrance into the VIP Honda Pavilion, two complimentary drink coupons, light appetizers, private bathrooms, access to the front of the stage viewing area and a souvenir Canalside Live cup.
The concert’s convenient downtown location puts you just a short walk from extended entertainment options after the show. From pubs to clubs, you and the boys can keep the party alive well into the night.
