Unfortunately, my ticket for this show is long lost. Someone sent me this picture from somewhere on the net but I’m not sure from where. Let me know if it’s yours. I remember that I did have a stub exactly like this in an old wallet for years. Damn.
001. The Thrill of It All: Roxy Music with Devotion, London Arena, London, Ontario, Canada, February 8, 1975, approximate price $6
45 years ago from the day of this podcast, on Saturday February the 8th, 1975, Roxy Music glamorously touched down in London, Ontario, Canada (they were from that other London…) to deliver a killer show to their glammed-up fans at the decidedly non-glittering old London Arena, at Bathurst and Ridout.
And a 12-year-old Various Artists was among them, enjoying a life-changing first concert that’s lead to a lifetime live-show addiction.
Join me, your host Various Artists, on the My Life In Concert.com podcast as I remember the concert and its time.
Tune in for setlist revelations, dead mics, back kicks, and The Towering Inferno.
