Them Crooked Vultures, Toronto May 15, 2010

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I finally had the chance to see TCV live on Saturday night in Toronto. Unfortuntely I missed their first show here last year, because I didn't know who they were yet :angry: .

The show was at the Air Canada Centre, which if I'm not mistaken, is their first arena show. Josh himself said that this was their biggest concert to date, not including festivals of course. The arena was about 80% full I'd say. The floor and lower bowl was pretty much 100% full, and most of the upper bowl was full except the far endzones. Crowd was loud and energetic. I was first row platinum (which is 1st row of the whole arena, the boards were right in front, stage left about 50-60 ft. from the stage. Amazing seats, and provided a perfect view of the stage.

Opening bands were Alberta Cross and Arkells. Missed Alberta Cross. Arkells were amazing. They are a local band from Hamilton, Ontario, and they get a lot of airtime on our new rock station. Perfect opening band imo.

TCV were a real treat. It is truly an honour to be in the same building as them, especially JPJ of course. I got the chills just seeing him standing there playing, picturing him doing the same thing back in the 70's, with Robert, Jimmy, and John sharing the stage. Then of course his little piano solo at the end gave me the chills. Reminded me of No Quarter circa 1975/77. Incredible!

Highlites for me were pretty much the whole concert! Every song sounded amazing, and I loved their stage set-up. The lighting was incredible and just augmented the whole feel of the show.

Can't wait to see them again hopefully!
