Comments: When Alice Cooper announced he was making another swing back into Canada and playing at least one date a comfortable driving distance from Toronto I immediately snapped up a pair of tickets. Since the concert was the better part of an hour north of the city, and since Rhonda and I had been looking for an excuse to play hookie from work, we decided to get a hotel room in the city to set up as our base of operations. Since the best route north to Barrie was up the 400 highway Rhonda hitched a ride in to work with a girlfriend that day. I cut out from work early and drove out the west end to pick her up. We made our way to our hotel, checked in and got ready to head off to see Alice Cooper. Following a nice dinner, we jumped in my Cavalier, pointed the hood northwards and went off, in search of the Barrie Molson Centre.

The show was the song Between High School and Old School swapped out in favour of the Killer album track You Drive Me Nervous and new song Sunset Babies (All Got Rabies) dropper altogether. Still, it was an excellent show with Alice’s daughter Calico in all her snarling glory during Wish I Were Born In Beverly Hills.
