UPDATE: Correction – there will not be a live screening broadcast on giant video screens at Nathan Phillips Square as previously reported.
The Pan Am Games will be breaking out some heavy hitters for the Closing Ceremony on July 26.
Kanye West, Pitbull and Serena Ryder have all been tapped to perform at the sports-minded shindig (sadly not as one big supergroup BUT COULD YOU IMAGINE???) which will be taking place at Rogers Centre. Tickets start at $90.
“The Closing Ceremony is a time for us to celebrate the thrilling achievements of the exceptional athletes we’re seeing compete here in Toronto. It’s also a great opportunity for this city to have some fun,”; said Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee CEO Saäd Rafi. “Live Nation brings its unrivalled knowledge of and experience in supporting major high-profile international events to the TORONTO 2015 Games. We knew they would make our Closing Ceremony a must-see live event and something to remember for our athletes.”;
Global News notes that the big Kanye reveal was leaked earlier today by Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Bennett. (He’s representing Canada at the games, y’know.)
