Performing in Penticton in 2011

As an entertainment venue, the South Okanagan Events Centre was the subject of controversy in 2011.

Though there were complaints about fewer shows in 2011, those that did come, like Toby Keith (right), Keith Urban, Terri Clarke and the Cirque du Soleil production Dralion did very well. SOEC manager Dean Clarke said the success of those shows is the reason for increased concert bookings for 2012.
