The Regina Pats ownership group is bringing in a big concert for the Memorial Cup and those attending the outdoor games in February get a spot at the front of the line.
Pats governor Anthony Marquart teased the winter concert Tuesday afternoon alongside the release of the outdoor games ticket structure.
As part of the Regina Pats 100th anniversary, the club organized two outdoor games to take place on the family day long weekend. The first is an NHL alumni game to be held on Feb. 17, 2018 which will include former big league players like Scott Niedermayer and Wendel Clark. The second will be a rivalry matchup between the Pats and the Moose Jaw Warriors on Feb. 18.

Marquart said about a third of the tickets to the February games have already been scooped up.
“At this time over 10,000 ticket packages have already been sold or allocated. This includes individual ticket sales, corporate and CHL stakeholders,” he explained.
Those who already have purchased tickets, or purchase them before concert tickets go on sale will get access to a pre-sale for the concert, which will take place at Mosaic Stadium.
Marquart would not say what artist is coming to the Queen City, but the show will be on May 17 and said it was on the level of the Rolling Stones, ACDC and Paul McCartney.
Both U2 and the Eagles are touring North America around this time.
The official concert announcement is expected on Monday.
Tickets to the outdoor game start at $75.00 for seats in ‘Pil Country’ and include entry to both weekend games. On the high end gold tickets will set a person back $275.00.
“Even though our costs are the same as the NHL outdoor games we have chose to offer our ticket prices at less than half of our their pricing. We’ve taken this approach because we want everyone to have the opportunity to join us for this amazing community celebration,” Marquart said.
To that point, the Pats are also offering a payment plan for those who want tickets but want to take a little more time to pay for them.
Fans can place a 25 per cent deposit and then make two payments after that.
A silver ticket would mean a deposit of $49.68 and then two payments of $74.52.
