News Release - Queen's University Richardson Stadium approved as venue for The Glorious Sons concert

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Kingston, ON  – Queen’s University’s Richardson Stadium will play host to a concert by local Kingston rock band The Glorious Sons, on Saturday, September 21, 2019. The concert was just announced by the band, following a noise exemption approval by City Council on June 18, 2019.

“Richardson Stadium is a unique facility in Kingston and, from time to time, Queen’s Athletics gets calls from organizations interested in using the facility,” said Leslie Dal Cin, Executive Director, Athletics & Recreation for Queen’s University. “We were contacted by a concert promoter about using the stadium as a concert venue for the successful local band, The Glorious Sons, and advised them that they would need to obtain a noise bylaw exemption from City Council.” 

Amplified music is not normally permitted there under the City’s Noise Bylaw, noted Dal Cin. “We follow the same process for our own events. Ultimately, it is up to City Council to determine whether a proposed exemption is appropriate.”
