Hello, Vancouver!

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

I have now achieved the dream of any musician who came of age in Vancouver in the 1980s: playing at B.C. Place Stadium.

Of course, there was no one in the stands. All 60,000 seats were empty, and we were playing amidst a stadium floor full of shiny new cars and trucks, to a few dozen VIPs invited for a buffet breakfast by General Motors, at 7:45´┐Ża.m., before the Auto and Truck Show opened to the general public. But one shouldn't be picky about these things.

Similarly, my next performance with the band will be for 45,000 people or so, but they'll all be running by first thing on a Sunday morning, April 13.
