The Concert I Never Gave...(except for, like, 2000 times in my bedroom)

Wear Plaid for Dad

An Evening with Eric McCormack in support of Prostate Cancer Canada

August 5th and 6th 2016

Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage

Vancouver, BC

Eric McCormack brings a night of music and story telling to the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, in Vancouver, on August 5 and 6, 2016 in support of Prostate Cancer Canada
McCormack, Emmy-winning star of "Will & Grace" and "Perception", conceived of "The Concert I Never Gave... (except for, like 2000 times in my bedroom)" as a charity event in memory of his parents, who both died of cancer, and performed the concert in Los Angeles and Toronto to sold-out audiences.
Featuring iconic music from the 70's and 80's, by the likes of Elton John, The Who, Billy Joel, Burton Cummings and Queen, to name only a few, Eric weaves tales of growing up in the suburbs throughout the concert along with insider anecdotes about Will & Grace, becoming friends with Elton John, meeting Pete Townsend - a celebrity tell-all of great stories, wrapped in a two-hour concert.
McCormack will be backed by an "uber" house band including musical director Loren Gold, keyboardist for The Who, Tyler Stewart, drummer for the Barenaked Ladies and Murray Foster, bass player for Great Big Sea - and expects to rock out in Vancouver with distinction!
Losing his parents to cancer makes the choice of charity very important to Eric. All proceeds will be donated to Prostate Cancer Canada.

“One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, I know, because my Dad was one of them. I lost him eight years ago and I don’t want my son or your kids to say the same thing,” says Eric, who also lost his mother to bladder cancer.

“The title says it all: in my bedroom, as a kid, I was a rock star. And a lot of the people I pretended to be, Elton, Burton, Pete Townsend, I ended up befriending years later. So it’s a night of songs and funny career stories, with a kickass band, in a city I love, for the parents I miss.”
