The recently flooded grounds of the Calgary Stampede are set to stage one of the greatest comebacks of all time.
Less than a month after bible-grade flooding in Calgary’s downtown, the Stampede track has been re-built, and is currently a 9 on the Chuckwagon 10-scale. This is great news if you love watching range sports, but there’s a sadder side to the story for music-loving Calgarians. All of the music has been cancelled because of poor air quality in the music venues; including K-OS, Sam Roberts Band, Corb Lund, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks and Kiss.
