Comments: Bill, Paul and I went to see this show, on the last weekend of freedom before we started college. Bill and I had already seen Zon open for The Tubes at Maple Leaf Gardens back in the spring and were looking forward to seeing them again. They didn’t disappoint.

The story of this concert had more to do with our exploits at the CNE while waiting for the show to begin than it did with the actual concert itself. Sure, Styx were great in concert, even though they played a pathetically short set for whatever reason. The music they did play was wildly entertaining, with Dennis De Young strutting about the stage like a ponce peacock, JY shredding a wicked lead here and there and Tommy Shaw smiling beatifically at the crowd while playing the perfect foil to his much taller guitar brother.

That being said, the thing that resonates the most for me about that day has more to do with events leading up to the concert. Just what kind of trouble can three more or less 18 year olds hope to get into with copious amounts of pot, some hard earned beer and plenty of time to kill…

  1. I was at that styx concert at the cne back in 1978 but I thought the juvenile antics of the stoners that set off the firecrackers in the grandstand spoiled the show for everybody else

    1. Hi Aimee Love. Thank you for stopping by. I remember those idiots. Didn’t appreciate them but I wouldn’t say they spoiled it for me. I went to a goodly number of concerts in the ’70’s and idiots with firecrackers seemed to be at each and every one of them. Perhaps I was just used to them by that point in time. They were annoying but hardly unexpected.
