The Commodore Ballroom is Vancouver’s and perhaps one of Canada’s most treasured live music spaces. Great sound, great sightlines and the famous sprung dancefloor have helped to keep fans flocking to the venerable venue. Since 1929, the Commodore has hosted an amazing array of music greats like; Duke Ellington, Tina Turner, James Brown, U2, The Police, Pearl Jam, Oasis, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga but still leaving space for up and coming opening acts or those found in the PEAK Performance Project.
In his new book, Live At The Commodore, Aaron Chapman presents an illustrated history of the legendary Granville Street music hall. On November 26th, Chapman will launch his book at the Commodore. The evening, hosted by CBC Radio 3 host, Grant Lawrence, will include history, readings, live music and the Vancouver Heritage Foundation will present the Commodore Ballroom with a “Places That Matter” plaque. The plaques are a way to celebrate the people, places and events that make up the history of the city.
Live At The Commodore book launch takes place Wednesday November 26th, at 7pm.
