If you happen to be in Edmonton, Canada on Saturday, October 26, 2013 and are looking for something to do, Microsoft is slated to hold a Grand Opening celebration at the West Edmonton Mall.
Tagging along for the excitement is Dierks Bentley of Country Music fame and fortune. Bentley will hold a concert that evening at the Ice Palace in the West Edmonton Mall.
The line for the event starts forming at 10:00p.m. on Friday, October 25, 2013 with the actual Grand Opening not taking place until 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 26, 2013.
Why line up so soon?
Well...the first 200 people in line will receive two free premiere viewing tickets for the Dierks Bentley concert. One ticket, more than likely for a friend, will get you into the concert. The other ticket, which you'll likely keep for yourself, will get you admission to an after-concert meet and greet with Dierks Bentley.
If you're not in the first 200 in line, have no fear. The next 1,100 people in line will get two premiere viewing tickets to the concert as well (doesn't include the backstage meet/greet access).
It sounds like an interesting event and nice to see Microsoft continuing to expand it's retail presence. Now if they could only open up a store in my home town....
