Last summer Montrealers welcomed quite a few celebrities to the city. It wasn't that uncommon to spot someone famous spending a night downtown, or even enjoying their day off in Old Montreal. Of course, some of our visitors made a longer-lasting impression than others.
TL;DR On June 8, 2019 Adam Sandler will be returning to Montreal for his Netflix special "100% Fresher." The actor will also be accompanied by a surprise guest. More details below.
Luckily, all of those fun times don't have to come to an end, as it was just announced that Adam Sandler will be returning to Montreal this summer!
Last year, Sandler returned to stand-up for the Netflix special "100% Fresh." The dates for his "100% Fresher" North American tour with Netflix was just announced, with one of the shows taking place at Montreal's Bell Centre on June 8, 2019, according to Rolling Stone.
The day before returning to Montreal, Sandler will also have a show in Toronto at the Budweiser Stage. These are the only two Canadian dates, with the rest of the tour taking place in the United States.
Interestingly, according to the tour dates, after Sandler's show on June 8 in Montreal he doesn't perform again until June 15 in Las Vegas.
So, it could totally be possible that Adam Sandler has decided to spend some more time in his favourite city, possibly to eat some more bagels and crash another wedding.
Whatever reason Adam Sandler comes to Montreal, we can all agree that he'll once again be a welcome honourary Montrealer.
To make things even more exciting, an unannounced guest is also expected to join Sandler on the tour. Stay tuned for more information on what other celebrities will also be visiting Montreal this June.
Tickets will go on sale for the Montreal show this Friday, March 29, 2019 through Live Nation.
The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"
