Photos: Top 5 Vancouver concerts in 2013

Best Vancouver concerts in 2013

What a year in concerts! Vancouver was lucky to welcome some of the biggest names in music this year—from Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake to Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding.

Here were my top 5 favourites.

  1. Marina & the Diamonds at the Commodore

Welsh singer-songwriter Marina Diamandis made good on her promise last year to return to Vancouver. Her Lonely Hearts Club tour showcased her charm and irresistible alt-pop music.

  1. Bruno Mars at Rogers Arena

In any other year, Bruno Mars would have topped my list of best concerts. The Moonshine Jungle tour had everything going for it: slick production, bright lights, and Bruno’s talent. I expect the concert’s fun old-school vibe to be prominent when Bruno Mars performs at Super Bowl in 2014.
