Classic Albums Live

Relying only on the music, using what Canadian founder, Craig Martin refers to as "the world's best musicians," Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centres across North America since its inception in 2003. This highly entertaining concert series evokes memories of our youth, whether it is reliving a stellar concert experience or recreating the feeling of picking through your milk-crated record collection, like you were mining for musical gold. Classic Albums Live performances bring fans from all walks of life, from boomers to zoomers, to experience their favourite album or band in the acoustically pristine Jack Singer Concert Hall.  

Our newest concert series premiered with us in 2018. Its success can be measured by the massive smiles on the faces of our audience members and the high subscription rate. Some of the albums already featured have included: Fleetwood Mac – Rumours; The Beatles – Abbey Road; Supertramp – Crime of the Century; Led Zeppelin IV; and AC/DC - Back in Black. 

Classic Albums Live is a non-stop party in a breathtaking venue - a combination that makes for an unforgettable night out. And Calgary has proven time and time again that this is a series worth experiencing to believe, the audience's energy even sometimes tops the band's. It's pure fun for music lovers."- Jennifer Johnson, Vice President of Programming, Arts Commons.
