Comments: This was the first concert that Marj ever attended It was one of two concerts that I attended using The Whitby Free Press’ Cheap Thrills tickets, purchased for give away at my suggestion to help commemorate the paper’s 10th anniversary. She was up at the cottage on Scugog island and didn’t have a car just yet, so I drove there, picked her up and promised her Mom I would have her home as soon after the show as possible. Which meant after midnight since it was an hour plus drive from Maple Leaf Gardens to Scugog Island and the show would probably not be done until 11:00 PM or so. The show itself was excellent. I enjoyed it more than the first time I saw the band. For one thing, they played a longer set and their new album, Paradise Theater, was a strong effort from start to finish. I didn’t know it then, but I would see the classic configuration of the band only once more.
