Get ready to turn up those dials on your radio! The Calgary Stampede Bell Grandstand Show is back with a new and reimagined show for 2022. Titled AMPLIFIED, the show will feature a vibrant cast of world-class performers, including multi-JUNO Award-winning Canadian Country Music Icon, Dean Brody, a spectacle of song and dance from The Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede, world-class trick roping from Loop Rawlins, and acts by Circus Concepts and Shawnee Kish, all closing out with the fan-favourite fireworks finale.
AMPLIFIED will celebrate the rich, deep and vivid journey of building Calgary through performance, taking audiences through a musical journey of iconic Calgary venues that have hosted some of the greatest music and art of all time – The Palace, Ranchman’s, The King Eddy, and The GRAND, to name a few. With nostalgic moments and visuals sprinkled through the production, the show will feature significant history with musical numbers from the 60s to today.
The Bell Grandstand Show is also the premier performance for the Young Canadians School of Performing Arts. This talented group of youth, ages 8-21, put on a dazzling showcase of vocals, choreography and showmanship. The Bell Grandstand show is one of many high-calibre performance training opportunities these young performers receive throughout the year.
