Wish list for 2016!!!

* Ween to play Edmonton or anywhere in Canada for that matter.
* Lucero to play here as well.
* Drive-By Truckers to play Edmonton.
* Guns N' Roses all original line up to play Edmonton would be fun.

Edmonton has a new Coliseum (Rogers Place) being built right now. It is to open in September in time for the 2015-16 NHL season. So the question is, who will be the first band to break in the new building. I am going with Bruce Springsteen or U2.
