It’s a list of talent that would make any show promoter envious.

John Mellencamp, Kiss, Cirque du Soleil, Maroon 5, Hedley, Train, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, Alan Jackson, Motorhead and even Carrie Underwood all have something in common.

They’ve performed at the Abbotsford Centre (AC).

Add to that a more varied range of entertainment, from Elmo Makes Music to Florida Georgia Line, and you truly have a diverse selection of entertainment in the Fraser Valley.

Abbotsford is home to a multi-purpose establishment that showcases world-class acts at a reasonable price. Concerts and events are incredible and are very comparable to most downtown Vancouver activities.

Located at 33800 King Rd., near the University of the Fraser Valley, the facility opened in May 2009 with a performance by the Christian rock group Third Day. Since then, the AC has continued to attract the attention of some of the biggest names in show business.

This year the establishment hosts Brit Floyd – The World’s Greatest Pink Floyd Show – on June 8, and John Fogerty on Nov. 28.

The AC is capable of seating up to 8,500 spectators for major entertainment events. It’s a great venue with lots of parking, plenty of bathrooms, quick concession linesups and the facility is easy to navigate with young children. Tickets are affordable and the seat selection makes it up close and personal so that no seat is a bad seat.
