The Best Shows Hitting Vancouver November 2013

Enjoy the music of local artists, independant groups and the biggest names in music this month at these upcoming Vancouver shows

Johnny Reid at Queen Elizabeth Theatre – November 21

Originally born in Scotland and later raised as a teenager in Brampton, Ontario, Johnny Reid is one of Canada’s biggest modern day country music stars. Reid’s albums consistently go platinum, and the same is true of his Christmas albums. Fresh off the release of his latest, A Christmas Gift to You, Reid is set to perform at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre near the beginning of a cross-Canada tour. You best pull out your cowboy boots and hat for this show, but don’t forget to throw on that Christmas sweater as well. Visit Ticketmaster to buy your tickets today.

John Legend at The Orpheum Theatre – November 24

A frequent collaborator with artists like Kanye West, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and The Roots, R&B singer John Legend has quite the impressive resume. The nine-time Grammy winner brings his sultry songs to The Orpheum Theatre later this month to promote his latest effort, Love in the Future. Be prepared to swoon and maybe even shed a tear or two at this show. Buy your tickets today through Ticketmaster.

Matthew Good at The Orpheum Theatre – November 28

It was more than a decade ago that Matthew Good Band, one of Canada’s most successful alternative rock bands of the 1990s, eventually dissolved. Matthew Good subsequently branched off as solo artist and continued to find success, releasing six albums to date including his latest, Arrows of Desire. Known for his political beliefs almost as much as he is for his music, the Vancouver native promises to put on a stellar show with equally engaging banter. Purchase tickets online now.

Beyonce at Rogers Arena – November 30

Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance earlier this year proved just how explosive her performances can be – so explosive, in fact, that she has the ability to blackout an entire football stadium. Despite settling down with Jay-Z and becoming a new mother last year, Beyonce still comes across as the “independent woman” that we fell in love with all those years ago. “Fierce” is a word that is often used to describe Beyonce’s onstage persona, and her show at Rogers Arena is sure to be a spectacle worth the steep ticket price. Select tickets still available through StubHub.
