    Default Which band would you like to see?

    Which band would you like to see come to the Sault and why would you think they would sell out? Let's be realistic.

    Rush - I think they would sell out very quick because they are both current and been around for years with high record sales and many sold out shows wherever they play.

    The very first concert I'd seen in my life was Rush and Moxy. circa 1976. There were probably 10,000 fans packed into the Gardens. Yes 10,000. I think the tickets were around $10.
    A later concert I went to..probably April Wine or Triumph around 1980 had over 11,000 according to CJIC or CKCY at the time.

    These were upstart, unknown bands.
    To get some of that quality here now..the price would be astronautical.

    With a veniew supporting 4,000 tickets we are lucky to get the bands we do.
    Rush is right out of there unless they or some other top act want to do a practise tour first.
    Which could happen, but that would take an extreme effort from our city.

    Until then skid row or black sabbath. without the sabbath and maybe joan jett is what we'll get.
    Possibly Healy now that he's gone. We can get his band.
    Maybe Helix. or whoa..here's a better one for all the Steeelback haters. Maybe we can get White Lion to bring down the house?

    Actually, the Steelback Centre has a seating capacity of 5,000 for spectator sports and 6,500 for concerts. This is right out of the Steelback Centre website. After all of that, you still never mentioned which band you would like to see come to the Sault.

    What band would actually fill the seats here and show-up..maybe Deep Purple

    Now filter out the Rush fantasies where they can play a 11100..Billion stadium as apposed to a 4,000 area in the Sault and then you have a valid statement.

    Next

    Okay, I'd like to see Wolfmother and/or Airbourne. They're from Australia though, so I don't know how likely that is...
