Walk off the Earth tribute concert

Expiry:
January 13, 2019
Retailer:
City of Burlington
A memorial tribute to Walk Off The Earth’s Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor will take place this Sunday, January 13, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Civic Square in downtown Burlington. The free event will feature performances by members of Walk Off the Earth, Barenaked Ladies, Scott Helman, Monster Truck, USS, Darenots and Saint Alivia.

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward and City of Burlington are launching a new Key to the City program, honouring individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions to our community. The first recipient of this new distinction will be, posthumously, Mike Taylor, of Walk Off The Earth, for the impact he has made on Burlington’s arts and culture scene with his talent, music and community involvement.

Due to the expected large crowds and local support for the band, the following roads will be closed from 3 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13 to midnight on Jan. 14 to allow for set-up and clean-up of the event: Brant Street, from Ontario Street to Pine Street James Street, from John Street to Brant Street Elgin Street, from Locust Street to Brant Street Ontario Street from Brant Street to Locust Street.

Parking will be free; however, traffic is likely to be heavy and concert-goers are strongly encouraged to take Burlington Transit to the Downtown Transit Terminal on John Street or other nearby bus stop locations. For safety reasons, concert-goers are also asked to use their mobile phone’s flashlight, battery-powered lights or glow sticks instead of candles. Kelly’s Bake Shoppe will be providing free hot chocolate.
Please note times on road closure map are different from Concert times.
