Regina’s new Mosaic Stadium is getting ready to host legendary rockers Guns N’ Roses.
Paula Kohl is director of marketing and communications forRegina Exhibition Association Limited, which operates the stadium.
She said there are still tickets available for Sunday’s show.
“It’s kind of hit-and-miss where the seats are but it’s going to be a full house in there, it will feel like a full Rider game with people on the floor.”
Kohl added that any seat in the stadium is a good seat.
Gates open Sunday at 4:30 p.m., with Our Lady Peace (OLP) set to hit the stage at about 6:15 p.m.
Kohl said there will be a quick stage turnaround after OLP plays, with Guns N’ Roses set to perform around 7:30 p.m.
Just like Rider games, there will be free public transportation to and from the stadium for concertgoers.
Smoking at the concert
Mosaic Stadium itself is a non-smoking facility, in compliance with the City of Regina’s smoking bylaw.
“There will be designated areas outside of the stadium so people can have that one last cigarette or vaping experience before they go in and we’re just confirming those areas,” Kohl said.
Kohl reminded concertgoers there will be no going in and out of the stadium during the show. She said that’s stadium policy for all events, including Rider games.
“That’s a consistent thing with stadiums across North America and that’s done for security reasons just to keep everyone safe and have a good experience at the concert,” Kohl said.
Kohl said she hasn’t seen the actual production but hears it’s going to be a huge set up.
“Right now they’re setting up the stage and the production people actually get in here Saturday and start setting everything up. I think Saskatchewan people are in for a great show on Sunday,” Kohl said.
She encouraged people to come early, as the gates will be busy.
“We don’t want anyone to miss a minute of the action, get here and have some fun,” Kohl said.
