heart soul and a voice. i think that it was at the humming bird center.Who and when?
I saw U2 in 1987 at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. They were at the top of their game. It was almost like a religious experience...66,000 people all singing in unison.
Saw Simple Minds in Ottawa ''85. Another solid show from a band in their prime.
BB King...Van Halen...The Posies...
So what notable bands have you seen? Who on this forum goes back the furthest with a rock 'n roll concert story?
The Posies put on an incredible live performance back in the early 90's. Still on of my fave bands to this day!
They toured the Vancouver 'b' circuit in 1986, developing a progressive rock style that soon had them playing higher profile gigs. It led to a management deal with Sam Feldman's group, and the band did some home recordings of some material they'd written, but no actual studio demos were done. Within a year, and without a recording deal, everyone eventually drifted their seperate ways.
Following the band's demise, Jones continued touring the local circuit in various incarnations of mostly cover bands, then morphed into a predominantly Alice Cooper tribute that's played predominantly in Canada and the US, as well as an Orient tour.
Galpin left to hook up with Darby Mills' first solo project Plain Jane, then joined Grant in The Edge. From there he went on to play with Wild Kingdom and Scotty & The Slam Dogs. He joined Mills again in the late '90s in The Headpins. Wowk meanwhile joined touring ensembles of several west coast based bands over the years, including Sweeney Todd. He became a guitar instructor and opened Stone Finger Studio, producing and doing session work on various projects around Vancouver. Tambasco and Grant also bounced around in different groups for awhile, including Grant's project in the early '00s - a Bon Jovi tribute act.
