One of the biggest names in comedy is heading to St. Catharines to perform his signature stand-up act. The iconic Jerry Seinfeld will be coming to the Meridian Centre in what is anticipated to be a sold-out show.
Seinfeld who is known for taking trivial everyday scenarios and flawlessly incorporating them into his stand-up and for his self-titled television show is one of the biggest names that St. Catharines has seen since the Meridian Centre first opened its doors. It’s exciting to that such a quality of talent is finally being featured in Niagara, adding to the area’s tourism and overall cultural experience.
“We are beyond excited to be welcoming the talented Mr. Seinfeld to St. Catharines and the Meridian Centre,” said Kay Meuiller, the Marketing Director at the Meridian Centre. “Again, we are happy to showcase our new building and plan on receiving guests from a large geographical area as Seinfeld will not be performing in Toronto or Buffalo.”
The Meridian Centre opened in October of 2014 and has not only integrated Niagara IceDogs Games into the downtown core, but has also provided a stunning venue for concerts and shows, including acts like City and Colour and The Tragically Hip. The Seinfeld show adds something new to the mix in downtown St. Catharines.
Seinfeld’s most recent television endeavour has been his show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he is joined by friends who share stories while drinking coffee and cruising around in a classic car. This year Seinfeld will be touring his uncanny ability to turn the ordinary into the hilarious across numerous countries, and it’s amazing that Niagara is on that list.
The show will take place on Jun. 5, so although the academic year will have come to a close, Seinfeld is a perfect reason to come spend some time in St. Catharines for those who don’t live in the area before the summer. A chance to see one of the biggest names in comedy in this area certainly doesn’t come often and should be taken advantage of.
“For those travelling from out of the Niagara Region, this is a perfect opportunity for a weekend getaway, starting with Seinfeld on the Friday evening, followed perhaps by a day touring the Niagara wine route on Saturday,” said Meuiller.
The Meridian Centre will also be offering a two-day VIP pre-sale code beginning on Mar. 3 at 10:00 am for anyone who has “liked” them on Facebook or follows them on Twitter. Be sure to add them to your social media accounts to ensure your chance to get tickets, as they will definitely sell-out. Regular sales will begin Mar. 6 at 10:00 am.
The Meridian Centre is located at 1 Icedogs Way in St Catharines. Tickets for the Jun. 5 Jerry Seinfeld show will be available at the Meridian Centre Box Office, online at ticketmaster.ca or charge by phone at 1-855-985-5000. Follow them on Twitter @MeridianCtre
