25 Years Ago Today...August 12th

It was twenty-five years ago today that I saw George Thorogood with opener Elvin Bishop play Northlands Coliseum here in Edmonton.

Also on this day, twenty-three years ago, I saw Bob Dylan play the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton.

On the same day twenty-three years ago, I had gone to the Edmonton Folk Fest hoping Dylan might make a surprise appearance, no such luck.

This day has been a good date for shows. As it was twenty years ago today that I saw Pearl Jam with Cadillac Tramps play the Convention Centre here in Edmonton.

And it was on this day five years ago, I saw Tom Petty with Steve Winwood opening at Rexall Place in Edmonton.
