NANAIMO - More than 850 people of all ages put their hands up high for rapper T-Pain.

The Vancouver Island Conference Centre has hosted many events since it opened three years ago, but this was the first concert.

T-Pain was a test, a trial run to see if the Conference Centre could sell itself as a concert venue. The concert was promoted by the Queen's Hotel in Downtown Nanaimo.

T-Pain's fans were a trouble free crowd, the Conference Centre says there was no damage during the event and the RCMP had no problems to report.

Concerts may be a ticket to more revenue but conferences are still the facility's main focus.

But that doesn't mean the disco ball is going in the trash, more concerts and dance parties could be in the centre's future. Which is music to the ears of concert fans.
