    That really sucks for the Stampede, going to put a big dent in things.

    I don't think people realize how badly the Dome got damaged - not structurally, but electrical.

    Organizers posted a statement online:


    Construction trades have been working very hard on a number of fronts simultaneously including addressing issues related to electrical power, potable water, air conditioning, air quality, and personal safety. Ultimately, due to the flood, it just isn’t feasible to go ahead on July 10.
    Given the size of the four shows, and that they are all intended for indoor set-ups with tailored effects and lighting, there was no feasible alternative to host any one of the shows at another Calgary venue during Stampede.

    This will put a big dent in Tim McGraw's schedule. Stampede was 1 of 4 Canadian dates this year for him and a perfect tie in for the trip to Craven.

    Unfortunate news that is for sure.

    The NIMBYs around McMahon are brutal and have hurt the chances of these concerts to take place.

    Let's face it, Calgary is a shit place for the bog concerts and that's why we don't get any. Yet another reason for new arena & stadium.
