Calgary is no strangers to some pretty big concerts, especially during Stampede. But even I was surprised when I saw that Kings of Leon were coming to town to perform a free concert. That’s right FREE!

The Grammy Award winning band are headlining the  Aurora Illumination Concert Series, a summer-long celebration that’s taking over every corner of Canada with free musical performances, and for the tour’s stop in Calgary Kings of Leon will be the night’s big stars!

The concert will be held at Knoxville’s Stampede Tent on Saturday July 14th 2018.

Other cities and bands include:
● Rezz (June 29, Saskatoon)
● Sheepdogs (July 4, Yellowknife)
● Alexisonfire (July 6, Edmonton)
● The Cult (July 13, Edmonton)
● Arkells (July 22, Prince Edward Island)
● Sam Roberts Band (July 25, Whitehorse)
● City and Colour (July 31, Iqaluit)

If you don’t know, Aurora is a Canadian Cannabis company that’s redefining the thriving cannabis space. And regardless on where you land on the issue, I think we can all agree that a free Kings of Leon concert is win win!
