era of great entertainment that has made it one of the most talked about venues in Vancouver. Though we all know there are

symphony to hosting headliners like the Alabama Shakes and The Tragically Hip, the Orpheum Theatre has offered a little bit
of everything over the years, and that's a tradition unlikely to change any time in the near future.
