Set List unknown. Had never heard of It Bites prior to seeing them open for Jethro and the boys. They were equally really good and readily dismissible. Guess that’s why we have never heard of them before… or since for that matter. Hell, it’s only rock ‘n’ roll so it’s all good. Right?

Comments: For a while there, Rhonda and I were regulars at Copps Coliseum for concerts. I’ve always liked Copps. Being a smaller city than Toronto, tickets always seemed a little easier to come by in Hamilton. The layout of the arena made for quick and easy access and egress; and there is always something clandestine about going to concerts in another city, isn’t there. We had excellent seats for this show, if way off centre. We found ourselves in the second row right in front of a honking big bank of speakers stage left.

This gig was the second time Rhonda and I had seen J-Tull live and the first time to hear My God and Nothing Is Easy in a live setting. It certainly didn’t hurt that the bands most recent release, Rock Island, absolutely rocked. Opening with a video montage of images tied back to the Aqualung days dovetailed very nicely into the lyrics of Strange Avenues. It was a wonderful concert. The below video is of this very concert. Good times to be sure.
