Review: Live and Counting Crows at Molson Centre (Montreal)

Notes from scrapbook

Erica, Larisa, Phil, Joe and I took off for Montreal where we went to a really cool pub.  Crows were alright but the Live concert was spectacular!  Think being five rows away helps the experience!  Galaxie opened.

Review: Summersault 2000 at Molson Park (Barrie)

Notes from scrapbook

Went alone to Summersault to see the Pumpkins for the last time.  🙁  I met up with a few guys which was great!  Let’s see….who did I see.  Pumpkins, Finger Eleven, Foo Fighters, A Perfect Circle, Our Lady Peace, Eve 6, Treble Charger…to name a few.  Pumpkins were great.  It was worth the trip.

Further notes from my memory writing this in 2019

I find it hilarious that I wrote that I met a few guys which was great.  You know what really happened?  Two guys needed directions to Molson Park so I pointed out how to get there and they offered me a ride.  I then hung out with them for a few hours, even to the point of hanging out with them for supper.  While having a slice of pizza one of the guy’s ask me what I think about God and religion and all of that stuff.  Hey, I’m an open minded guy but alarm bells were ringing saying “Oh man, they are going to convert me to something!  Get the heck out!!!”  I answered some questions and then told them I was going to check out the merchandise booth and never went back!

Review: AC/DC at Air Canada Centre

Notes from scrapbook

Who DOESN’T like AC/DC?  Danny, Mike and I drove from Kap to see this wild concert.  Slash’s Snakepit opened and they played Nightrain.  AC/DC was great with their classic rock symbolism.

Review: Nine Inch Nails at Maple Leaf Gardens (Toronto)

Notes about this show written in 2019

19 years later and this is still one of the epic concerts Eric and I went to.  Epic in that I arrived in Ajax, Eric never showed up and then I got in touch with him Saturday afternoon in Kingston.  Turns out that he lost the address of my Aunt’s place and couldn’t find her in the phone book so stayed in a donut shop all night long hoping that I would come looking for him.  He went back home the next day.  When I phoned him up, I convinced him to hop back onto a bus and come down for a great show.  A great story.

Review: Our Lady Peace at Ottawa Civic Centre

Notes from scrapbook:

Cool things happened concerning the OLP concert.  First off I won 2 tickets AFTER I had bought some but also sent in a vocal review of the show into the band’s website.  THEN Amanda got us into the soundcheck where we met the band and got their autographs.  Mike was a very cool guy who seemed to be in it for the fans.  I went with Ryan, Larisa, Joe, Amanda, Lindsay, Shawn and his friend.
