Prospera Place struggles to score top shows

Prospera Place in Kelowna has played host to acts like George Thorogood, the Tragically Hip and Elton John, but lately many big concerts seem to be skipping Kelowna altogether.

George Thorogood, for example, is returning to the Okanagan next month but is playing at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton instead.

That's a big problem for people like Neville McDougall. He's a partner in the firm Benson Law LLP, which owns a private suite at Prospera Place. The firm pays $35,000 a year for the box, and uses the suite to entertain clients.

Neville McDougall explained the problem to Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
