Surrender

Mother told me, yes she told me
I’d meet girls like you
She also told me, stay away
You never know what you’ll catch

Written by Rick Nielsen
From the Cheap Trick album Heaven Tonight

You wouldn’t think heading into my fourth decade of a love affair with live music there would be many older groups that I had yet to see for the first time. I’m afraid you’d be wrong on that one chief. A new decade, a new (and old) batch of concerts to attend. Chris de Burg, der Schtingle (Sting) and AC/DC, two of the three first time concerts for me, were some of the best (and worst). CdB put on a great show considering I had absolutely zero expectations. Sting was one of the few concerts that I got bored enough during the show that I got up and walked around the grass section at the Molson Amphitheatre. And AC/DC? Well, what can I tell you about those boys from Oz. Blew my favorite band off the stage at SARStock. That’s all.

The Tragically Hip anyone? Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, PJ Harvey and Saga. It never ceases to amaze me how, as each year goes by, I still manage to see older bands for the very first time; and believe me when I say I’m not complaining.

Old favs like Aerosmith, Robert Plant, The Stones, Alice Cooper and Rush… shit, it was a busy decade.

Please join me now for a walk through all the concerts that the 00’s had to offer me.
