Last year saw more performances than the year before. It's a slow process to build up the reputation for acts. I think most have had a good turn out so that bodes well for us.

Might be time to grow the SCENE festival and get new and improving bands used to seeing the MC in a good light.

SMG runs the K-Rock in Kingston, besides Fronts games they have two World junior exhibition games scheduled, Gerry Dee, Jeff Dunham, Blue Rodeo and Dean Brody over the next few months. One would think since these acts have already negotiated with SMG for those shows, why not have those shows here as well?

Blue Rodeo has 2 shows to sell in the Hammer. Plus they played here just last year.

Jeff Dunham is doing the ACC, so lots of tickets to sell there.

Just read in the subStandard, that the PAC cost the city taxpayers $1.2M in 2016, and is projected to cost them $1.6M in 2017.

I believe that is what reported the MCU lost just under half a million dollars in 2016.

I wonder if a lot of the 'puck palace' bashers that were around a few years ago, figured that the MCU would cost the city less in annual operating deficits, than the PAC is!???

Thinking the puck palace bashers are awfully silent right now.

By all accounts the MC has been a success. I think the PAC will get there, but it is a different type of venue. The only other commentary is that both buildings remain under utilized. They need to be marketed aggressively so that a steady stream of events are being held there.

Dont misunderstand me, I certainly am not bashing the PAC.

I think it is incredible how the city fathers totally redid that whole area of the city which was a horrible eyesore, witnessed by LOTS of eyeballs on the 406 on a daily basis. It really is incredible.

I'm just surprised that the PAC would be performing financially so much more poorly than the MCU.
