This is the first event at the Richmond Olympic Oval. It has been going on since yesterday and tickets have been selling well. Tomorrow and Sunday are completely sold out! That’s great news to see an Olympic facility to generate non Olympic revenue, something critics argued would never happen or if they did it wouldn’t sell well. How does that crow taste?
Here is the full details of the event from richmondoval.ca:
