wow, haven't been down this road in a while…
Like Nat Baley, I'll back go way back because those concerts were just more memorable than most any other I've seen recently…. other than Tom Waits.
I Was in Ontario for high school and uni, smoked some hash and went to a lot of shows….. lol
Maple Leaf Gardens: 1970's, maybe early 80's
Alice Cooper - cool
ELP - unbelievable
Queen - nuff said
Gentle Giant - Not many know this band, but they blew my mind
Genesis - with Gabriel
Other various oldies:
Led Zep - The Forum in Montreal 1975
George Thorogood - Massey Hall
Jean Luc Ponty - Massey Hall
Violent Femmes- Concert Hall
Stones - El Mocambo, yep I was there in 1977. Put that in your pipe
Stones - CNIB benefit, Oshawa Civic Auditorium 1979
Santana - Kingswood Music Theater 1985
Bob Dyllan - strange show at Canada's Wonderland 198?

All time best concert…… 1985 at Varsity Arena, 3rd row center floor(seats maybe 1000)
Dire Straights, with none other than Stevie Ray backing them up…. holy crap!
