Buble Tours Winnipeg

Michael Bublé's "Crazy Love" tour came to Winnipeg on Friday night, bringing the singer back to a city he loves to perform for.

"The truth is, they're usually the best audiences," he said of the crowds he's played for in smaller cities. "Winnipeg and Saskatchewan are probably going to be a lot more rowdy than Toronto."

While in Winnipeg, Bublé ate at Hermanos Restaurant and Wine Bar - and raved about the experience to reporters at a press conference before his show.

He also celebrated his tour manager's 52nd birthday at Hy's by buying everyone drinks.

Unfortunately for some ladies, Bublé is engaged. He wears an engagement ring - something that caused some "kerfuffle" on entertainment news websites, he said.

"I was just trying to honor the customs of the woman I love," he said. His fiancé is Argentinean, but Bublé said a man wearing an engagement ring is customary in many countries.

Bublé said he believes tickets to see many musical acts are too expensive, especially with hefty service charges from ticket brokers added on top. He added that he considers the approximately $60 base price for tickets to his shows very reasonable.

Bublé, a co-owner of the WHL's Vancouver Giants, said he is a fan of affordable entertainment.
