Hotels Live Launch First-Ever Hotel Balcony Concert Series In Canada
Reinvents Live Music Venue Model to Offer Safe Concert Experiences

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 — Toronto, ON – Today, Award winning Canadian music industry veteran Rob Cyrynowski is pleased to announce the launch of Hotels Live, a promoter arm of Livestar Entertainment Canada in partnership with Canadian software & ticketing company, Showpass. This exciting entertainment concept gives concert-goers a safe new way to experience live music, utilizing hotel rooms with balconies overlooking centralized pool deck, atrium or courtyards, where hotel guests can enjoy live entertainment from the comfort of their own private balcony and then stay the night.

This innovative concept developed by Showpass, reinvents the venue model as we know it, offering an exclusive safe concert experience, topped off with a hotel night stay. Hotels Live will be the first to bring this idea to life and aims to host a variety of Hotel Balcony Concerts across Canada this summer, starting in Calgary, Alberta at the Ramada Plaza Calgary Downtown, kicking off on July 1st.

“There is nothing that compares to the live music experience, but our hotel balcony concerts are as close as it gets right now. By adding more value to each package, such as a VIP box suite, private washroom, room service capabilities and a hotel night stay, this concept has the ability to get people excited about seeing live music and the hotel experience together,” said Rob Cyrynowski, President, Livestar Entertainment. “Patrons can eat, drink and dance the night away all from the convenience of their own balcony and hotel room, which is something that we could all use more of these days."

"This concert model experience offers the ultimate VIP live music package, and is just like watching a concert from your own private box suite at an arena" said Lucas McCarthy, CEO, Showpass. By design, the hotel layout provides a safe social distancing environment with staggered, contactless check in & check out, and a room to stay for the night, alleviating drinking and driving concerns and complying with all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

As people continue to adjust to the new normal they will be looking for ways to get out of the house and have some fun again, whether it’s a well-deserved date night, a Father’s Day gift, a live music experience, a family getaway or staycation. Headlining artists and family friendly shows are to follow as the concept model continues to gain momentum. The Hotels Live concert series launches on July 1st with a special Canada Day Concert featuring The HIP Experience – The Tragically Hip Tribute.

Additional shows include:
July 4 – Fresh Horses – Garth Brooks Tribute
July 18 - Pink 4reud – A Tribute to Pink Floyd

Ticket packages are available at www.hotelslive.ca on Friday June 19th at 10am local time.
