Rolling Stones Concert July 30 - Toronto

Tue Jul 08, 2003 4:43 am

Well.....the concert is a go! The Rolling Stones, AC-DC, The Guess Who....and many more! The cost is really reasonable but it is on a Wednesday and starts at 2pm at Downsview (same site that the Pope was at).

How many of you will be attending??? If you are attending where are you coming from???

I wish I could come but can't make it. Should be good. I saw them when they were in Denver a few months ago. It was a great concert. Have fun

I honestly hate huge crowds and also concerts! You could not drag me there!

The best venue for the Stones is somewhere small & intimate, such as the Palais Royale.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

How DARE you forget about the WORLD'S greatest rock band and TORONTO native RUSH ?  Wow!
They will perform and the other secondary bands that you mentioned will perform also.
It's a 50/50 chance that I may make the trip to YYZ to support my favorite band and maybe hang out with AWspicious.  Smile

Rush? No no no no no, the lead singer's voice kills that group! The Guess Who are better, in my opinion.  Smile I'd also like to catch Sam Roberts live, as well as the Rolling Stones live, the closest I got to that was seeing them was at the iMax, which was good.

Superfly......sorry I replied to Captaingomes by mistake..........but I do agree that Rush is one of the greatest Toronto bands.

Captaingomes....I must admit I think the Guess Who are the greatest......Burt sure has a great set of pipes......

But I must say that this will my first concert......yes...believe it or not. I listen to all types of music and love it. I have a great sterio in my car with a booster and I love driving and cranking the tunes. And I am not one of these chicks that is not with it. I just never ever got the chance.....so I plan on having a great time! I know a few other a.net members that are going....too bad we all couldn't meet up??


Hope that everyone going has a fantastic time!

Hey Vaporlock, that concert will be MASSIVE.

Be prepared for everything: no washrooms for hours, no concession food, no shade, etc etc etc.

Hey, Superfly, Vaporlock, and other a.net members who may be attending; We should try to meet-up! Won't be easy, though... What with about half a million attendees expected. Perhaps, if we all gave some indication as to what we'll be wearing. We should e-mail each other or something when the date gets closer.
Well.....?

YYZ717; I guess it'll have to be survival of the fittest, eh... (heh heh heh)

Have you been to a club called 'The Orbit Room' in Toronto?
It's owned by Alex Lifeson (guitarist of RUSH).
If I do go, I will attend a party there July 29th. That's Geddy Lee's 50th birthday.  Smokin cool
You should try to make it if possible.

It would be great to hang out with someone who sends dirty emails all the time.  Laugh out loud

AWspicious....I agree it would be really great if the A.net members attending could all meet somewhere....

Yyz717, Superfly...what do you think??? I will be attending the concert with an A.net member who is a pilot so there is another 2 of us???  Big thumbs up Who knows maybe we can pull it off.

I'll keep checking the Iam.ca web site and see if they have posted an area overview of the concert stage, concessions etc.etc. and maybe we can pick a place/time to all meet. You can email me at my address it is listed on my profile and we can maybe pull this together. Laugh out loud

One way or the other it is going to one MASSIVE concert and a damm good one!!

I'll try to keep the post going so we can work on this.

YYZ717 won't be attending. Hopefully, Superfly will. Don't know who else (besides you and your A.net companion) from this website who will be attending.
I've got four friends coming in from out of town, plus, two of us live in the area. I've been charged with the responsibility of securing accomodations for the motely crew. I doubt there will be any availability at this late hour, though.

AWspicious.....maybe we can pull it off.....even if only a few of us meet up!

I'm not sure about accommodation at this point but it depends on what area of the city your looking??? I'm in the Kennedy/401 area so there is not too much out my way....I think there is a hotel at Warden/401 and another few going West....but I'm not sure if they will have a car....if they do then they should be able to find something???

There's also the Howard Johnson at Keel & 401... for starters.

I know I'm being pessimistic, but, I believe with half-a-million attendees expected, accommodations won't be plentiful at this point.

I'd consider going but for 3 issues.

1) I have to work in another city that day.
2) Way overpriced tickets

and

3) I'd be afraid of Mick Jaggers walker falling on me.

I repeat, way overpriced, I can't see spending $16.00 on a band I was not impressed with 30 years ago dropping their walkers on me. Sorry dude but they were marginal 30 years ago and now they're just washed up and, for some reason, desperate for money. It will not be my money though.

IMISSPiedmont.....too bad you feel that way about the STONES.......but if you were a STONES fan you would know that the reason they make the money is because they can still play, sing and continue to produce music. As far as being worried about them dropping their walkers.......I'm sure most people would agree that the STONES are still alive and kicking......and I for one being a woman don't agree with your statement "proof women go for money".....money sure isn't everything......you can have all the money in the world but happiness by far for me exceeds the $$$.

Rush, The Guess Who, AC-DC.....are all GREAT bands and as far as paying too much for a ticket to see them......I don't think that there has ever been a concert with as many GREAT bands for only $16 US.

But everyone has their own tastes in music and if the bands at the concert don't do anything for you then I agree why waste your money!

I'll sure cop to what I wrote, not for what I didn't.

I was a Stones fan 30 years ago and, although what I said was firmly tongue in cheek, I wish these bands would retire before it's just to late for any dignity. The Rolling Stones were pretty much passe when I was 15 and that was 30 years ago. Oh I sure nuff do have a passle of Stones LPs and listen to them on a regular basis. That, in my humble thought process, is where they belong.

And Superfly, I played `2112' just last night and `Fly by Night' earlier in the week. Both on vinyl as I'm a trogladyte and have no CD player. Except the one in my computer and you really can't annoy the neighbors with that when they live half a mile away.

Enjoy the concert people.

IMissPiedmont:
Excellent choices!  Big thumbs up
The don't waste your money buying those on CD anyway. The LPs of 2112 and Fly By Night sound better, comes with the entire storyline to those albums anyway. The CD re-issue of the old RUSH cataloge is just a another way for Mercury/Polygram to suck out more money from a band that's left them years ago.
I don't own a single pre-CD RUSH album, they are all on LP and 8track.

I haven't seen a map of the concert area yet....once the sponsors do then maybe we can try and pick a place so everyone can meet.

Hi guys.

I'm also going to this concert.

I think it would be great to meet some of A.Net's members there.

I'll be easy to spot. I'll be the guy who's wearing a Rolling Stones T-shirt from their Voodoo Lounge tour. It has a wicked cartoon drawing of Mick on the front & Keith on the back. Oh, and I also have a Stones tongue tatooed to my ass, but I plan on wearing pants, so that won't help you spot me.

I'll also be carrying a large cooler, a lawn chair, a huge blanket, an umbrella, several sharp metal objects, a video recorder, a tape recorder, a few cases of cold beer, and a bucket of chicken!  Laugh out loud

It sucks BIG TIME time that the concert is on a Wednesday afternoon! This makes me very ANGRY!!!  Pissed

Oh well, this concert should be a blast! I've seen the Stones 4 times before. I also saw Ronie Wood (I got his autograph in a Stones book) play a concert with Bo Didley at the Coppa in dowtown Toronto back around 1986. I saw Keith Richards in concert at Toronto's Masey Hall after the release of his "Talk Is Cheap" album around 1987. I also saw Mick Taylor play at Toronto's famous Elmo Combo in the early 90's. I sat upstairs with him in his dressing room (alone, just the 2 of us  Big thumbs up), for about 20 minutes while he was tuning his guitar. I got his autograph in the same Stones book before and after his show.

I like the Rolling Stones, incase you didn't notice. Big grin

I used to love watching Burton Cummings live at the Forum at Ontario Place, many many years ago. I'm looking forward to seeing Rush (Max Webster - High Class In Borrowed Shoes  Big thumbs up) and AC/DC too!

Let's Party!!!!!

Hello AWspicious.

Oops, I goofed!  Nuts

My mind got twisted with to many thoughts at one time. During a momentary lapse of reasoning I thought that Geddy Lee used to be the singer for Max Webster. I was in the middle of remembering when I ran into Kim Mitchell at Toronto International Airport. My Dad and I were alone in an elevator at YYZ after taking some photos from the roof of terminal one, when it stopped at a floor, and Kim Mitchell walked in. He was wearing salmon coloured pants, a tourquoise golf shirt, lemmon yellow running shoes, and a red baseball cap. He looked like a riot and was definetly dressed for the warm south. This was in late october. He was cool to chat with for a few minutes.

So, I was thinking about Kim & Geddy at the same time and typed a boo boo!  Sad

Sorry about that!

PS, on the radio this morning, it was announced that Blue Rodeo has joined the line-up for the concert.

Hello Superfly.

That's pretty cool to know.

Back in 1980 I was in grade 9 in high school. Two of my friends back then, who were identical twin brothers were hardcore, heavy duty, RUSH maniacs!!!!

I spent many days partying with them & other friends at their house while listening to their RUSH albums.

I've always liked RUSH, however, I went down a hard rock path that involved groups like the Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Ten Years After, Jefferson Airplane, Neil Young, etc, etc, etc.

That's cool! BEing a RUSH fan back during there creative peak must have been something. I came in on Power Windows (1985) when I was 12 years old. They are and will alsways be my favorite band.
Now I went down a path of Lounge music with gareat artist such as Canada's Gino Vannelli as well as Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Dick Hyman and other cool 60s and 70s stuff.

Just to bring this back up, for those of you going to the concert(s), I strongly suggest that you take your time to read up on what This site has to say about some of the things still missing some 11 days before the go-ahead. Some of it may seem a bit lame, but this guy, Paul Wortheimer, knows his stuff: He's been on the board that investigated the 1979 "The Who" disaster in Cincinnati, he was a contributor to the 1999 "British Event Safety Guide", he was a member of the Danish working group put down to study the Safety Aspects of Music Festivals following the 2000 tragedy at Roskilde Festival AND lately he has made a speech at the board investigating the Long Island club disaster.

And guys, take care. And have fun  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Checking the website now.
Interesting bit of news - Seems the event planners hadn't secured an insurance coverage deal as of last week-end. I hope all this attention to the safety aspect of the event will remind all attending to be considerate of themselves and others while still having a really good time.
I prefer to be optimistic in thinking that the majority of people attending this event will be of a mature age who will undoubtedly conduct themselves in a slightly intoxicated yet civilized manner.

Well....only one day away!

For those attending I hope you all have a great time...I plan on it!

Actually, I'm one who will be sleeping overnight outside to make sure I get a great spot...at least I hope I do.

A.W.....I know your going...enjoy!

Well, have fun all you fellow Torontonians who are going!

I'll be watching it on TV tomorrow from the confines of my living room.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I'm looking forward to the event. It promises to be a blast. People have been lining up since Monday! We're going to wait until Wednesday to line-up, though. I prefer to get a good night sleep in my own bed before encountering a crowd 400,000+ strong.
To those attending who might still be reading this thread - Have a great and safe time!
