Mac Island rules out Canada Day concert

Macdonald Island Park is reminding the public that it can’t host another outdoor concert this summer.

It says Events Wood Buffalo will have to hold its CanadaROCKS concert series off the island this year, because of the progress on Shell Place construction.

The island’s new stadium is scheduled to open in two years, and become the main facility for outdoor concerts in the region.

But that leaves two summers where the events agency will have to find an alternate solution.

Events Wood Buffalo hasn’t yet announced any plans for Canada Day this year.

In 2011, it packed the island with about 10,000 people when it attracted KISS to town.
