PNE 2010 Concerts and Entertainment Lineupby
This morning the PNE announced its unprecedented entertainment lineup for the fair’s 100th year. The acts are huge to celebrate this monumental milestone for the Pacific National Exhibition. Check out who’s on the bill so far:
Kevin Costner and Modern West
Huey Lewis and the News
Spirit of the West
John Hiatt and The Combo / Los Lobos
Little River Band
The Road Hammers
All of these nightly concerts are entirely FREE with your fair admission. View a full schedule here.
There will be the “100 Years of Fun Parade” once daily including a cast of 50 performers and 12 giant balloons (think Macy’s Thanksgiving Day paradae). There’s also the Kaboom! fireworks show nightly, and performances from the Metro Vancouver Naval 2010 Centennial Tattoo, the U.S. Marine Corps Band, the Seaforth Highlanders and the Vancouver Police Pipe Band.
Everyone’s favourites will also be back again this year as well — the Superdogs, Logger Sports, and the legendary Dal Richards with his orchestra.
This landmark season of the PNE will run Saturday, August 21 to Sunday, September 6, 2010.

Whoa that artist lineup is amazeballs. Can’t wait, the PNE always brings back memories of gorging myself with junk food.
I had no idea Kevin Costner was in a band!
I agree with the above – Kevin Costner was shocking. Think seeing Joan Jett and Trooper would be fun
Wow, another merry bunch of 80’s bands! Cyndi Lauper! Joan Jett! Hate to admit it, but I did see Huey Lewis and the News back in their heyday.
Thanks for posting. This will remind me to GO!
Something something… Truuuueee colors. And that’s why I love you. So, don’t be afraid…

Nice blog man Thank you
Does anyone know what the schedule for these concerts looks like?
Been a fan of Joan Jett’s since her and I were both
15. The last time I saw her was when
she played the commodore with The Blackhearts
back in the 80’s so I’m looking
forward to the PNE show, what
can I say, “I Love Rock n Roll”
Michael Bolton attracted some interesting fans last night. Surprised to see some younger folks in the audience who were totally into it.
