Burl's Creek Ontario Canada 2019 travel and show info
Posted by: bv ()
Date: February 11, 2019 11:16

The Rolling Stones are expected to be performing a show on Saturday June 29 at the Burl's Creek Event Grounds, 78 miles i.e. 124 km - 1.5 hours driving by car - from Toronto City Center Union station.

Links:

Wikipedia
Burl's Creek (official site)

The announcement is expected for 8am Monday Morning EST i.e. local time in Toronto Canada, which is same time in NYC and US East Coast, 2pm Europe Monday, 1pm UK etc.

Nearby locations for accomodation would be Barrie and Orillia. While Barrie is in the direction of Toronto City, Orillia is further north east, and might be easier for traffic, as the event grounds do have a capacity of 100,000 fans.

There is always room for Canada on Stones tours. In the middle of the European Tour 2003 they flew out of Prague to perform in front of a record crowd of 450,000 fans at SarsStock, then back for the rest of the European tour. Now 16 years later the ditance is shorter from Chicago to Burl's Creek Ontario. I am so happy for all the great fans in Canada. This show will be just eight days after the midsummer night, a real summer show for sure.

The official Burl's Creek site was up and running last week, but now it is "closed for maintenance" i.e. updates. Normally they have 40,000 or so country misic fans there, but the capacity should be 100,000. I bet there will be a lot of hot dogs, beer and water on sale. The biggest income from SarsStock was beer sales I think. If they do it with a couple of warm up acts they can sell beer all day.

Just to avoid confusion it's Barrie not not birrie

The 29th is a long weekend in Canada and central Ontario is a hot spot for tourism. Rooms will book fast

Congrats to my Canadian friends and others heading to this!!

Made the trip to Quebec City for Zip Code, but don't believe I'll be making the trek for this Desert Trip-North
(although seriously considering it cool smiley) type event.

Looking forward to the reports!!

Just booked a hotel room in Barrie. Girl was already wondering what was going on. They don't know yet, so hurry...I actually live in Toronto but I know that trying to get to the site the day of show from Toronto is going to take hours...no exaggeration., so I booked the might before. It;s going to be a mess. It's Canada Day Weekend and Barrie has it's own in town festival going on.

I have seen prices on hotel rooms increasing quite a lot in both Barrie and Orillia over the past few days. Later today they might be all gone.

You're right BV, there aren't that many hotels in Barrie! Bv...It won't take 1 hr and 33 minutes to get there from Toronto! THat whole stretch of highway from Toronto to Barrie will be a parking lot all day It will take hours! Thousands of Canadians will be on that highway anyway heading north for the long weekend. Add the concert goers and you will have a nightmare....the mother of all backups! If there is an accident... Then you have to go through the town of Barrie...one road to site with a Canada Day Weekend Festival festival going on!... They generally close the main street! Much Better to be in town the morning of the show...

Waiting for the layout of the venue and the ticket prices before making any decision...

Easy pass here. I would be able to rebook my return flight from Chicago to Helsinki, but that alone would run me 200€ and I'd still need to get back to Chicago from Toronto as SAS doesn't fly out of Toronto. That's another 200€ - before the ticket. Accommodation wouldn't have been too much a problem because my uncle lives just outside Barrie.

Anyhow, after Prague I told myself "no more open air shows". Happy for Canadian fans though! My favorite country, they totally deserved a show.

I'm so thrilled that the Stones are playing in Canada at this site! It's Canada Day Weekend and it's our biggest national party! Try to get a room as close as possible to the site to avoid the traffic. Even with the traffic congestion it will be absolutely memorable!

for anyone coming from any distance at all,,

why not make it a full weekend getaway,,

central ontario has lots to offer,,

Muskokas, Kawarthas, Wasaga Beach ( worlds longest freshwater beach)

so many places to stay outside of Barrie and Orillia, and the drive maybe that much easier as there is backways into Burls Creek

open air will be wonderful, as now in Canada pot is legal

Not yet but you may want to check back here [www1.ticketmaster.ca]

Presale Wednesday, general sale Friday.

Just from a crowd control standpoint I'd bet they will have different tiers of tickets. One big GA without fences is too dangerous.

Very cool to listen in on the big reveal on Rock95...

Another big adventure shaping up with show start at 2pm... should be a 3 or 4 band lineup!

Shades of Molson Canadian Rocks Toronto in 2003! Epic!

Presales listed as Wednesday on rs.com, and the radio folks at Rock95 in Barrie said presale Thursday, so very similar to the other gigs so far...

Yes, but this is 2019. You're required to wear a helmet if you attend a concert! winking smiley

If ticket sales are fast, they might add any warmup they like. If tickets go slow (theoretically, very much so), then they might add bigger acts.
