Before concert tours, the only way fans could hear their favourite musicians perform live was to hide in a production booth camouflaged as a birthday cake. Enjoy an earful of sound without an ear full of icing with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one general-admission ticket to a Classic Albums Live concert at the Safari Niagara Amphitheatre in Stevensville (a $21.47 value, including HST). Doors open at 7 p.m., and all shows start at 8 p.m. Choose from the following dates and performances:
• Led Zeppelin's Led Zeppelin II on Friday, June 24
• The Beatles' Help! and A Hard Day's Night on Friday, July 22
• AC/DC's Highway to Hell on Friday, August 5
• Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon on Friday, September 2
Paying tribute to four of rock 'n' roll's most enduring acts, Classic Albums Live re-creates entire records while maintaining every note and cut of the original recordings. Concertgoers can behold skilled musicians as they accurately toll Led Zeppelin's bluesy fiddle riffs or flawlessly evoke John Lennon's melodious hiccups in "Ticket to Ride." AC/DC's rollicking metal anthems thunder across Safari Niagara's outdoor amphitheatre, and Pink Floyd's psychedelic singalongs sync up perfectly with Citizen Kane II in rain or shine. Stroll over to the concessions and beer tents, where a toe-tapping staff serves eats and pours cold beverages (not included in today's deal) for adults carrying valid IDs or platinum library cards.
Safari Niagara provides a home for more than 750 exotic and domestic animals. Alpacas, grey wolves, hippos, giraffes, and rhinos are among the many animals that prowl the 110-acre facility. Click here for up-to-date information about the 2017 season.
