Some of the biggest names in music and comedy will soon perform in Coquitlam thanks to a new partnership with Live Nation Canada.

This week, Great Canadian Entertainment announced it had joined forces with the company to bring top acts to its casino venues, including The Show Theatre at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver (2080 United Blvd.).

The news comes as Great Canadian opens a new $1-billion resort with a 5,000-seat theatre in Toronto later this year.

Other coast-to-coast venues that will benefit from the alliance include River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, The Arena at Pickering Casino Resort, the Molson Canadian Centre at Casino New Brunswick and The Schooner Showroom at Casino Nova Scotia.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Live Nation Canada, the premier live entertainment promoter in the world," said Gavin Whiteley, Great Canadian's chief marketing officer, in a news release.

"This partnership will bring some of the biggest and most exciting artists to our exceptional venues, providing guests with unforgettable experiences they will cherish for years to come."

According to its website, Live Nation is the world's largest producer of live entertainment, booking 4,000 touring artists at more than 200 venues in 40 countries.

It also puts on about 40,000 concerts a year.
