One more place Calgary should be proud off. This place holds different spaces for different types of entertainment, Small and big crowds. The parking fee is very affordable but you need to arrive early as the parking lot is not big.

We have attended the Jack Singer Concert Hall for several events. It is a beautiful venue with superb acoustics. We have seen a couple of comedians and both the The Australian Pink Floyd Experience and Brit Floyd.

Went here to see Brit Floyd Concert. Good Parking in underground Parkade, fantastic unobstructed views from all levels. Comfortable seats. Lobby gets frenetic during break so long lines for refreshments. Sound was incredible, lighting superb. Facility is such a credit to Calgary!
