Canadian icons Blue Rodeo took over the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on a sunny summer Saturday to deliver the classics, as well as some new tunes, to their loyal hometown audience.
Fans braved some pretty insane traffic to see the show with the CNE and a TFC game both happening right across the street, but once they were at the show the stressful trip was forgotten and it was time to enjoy some homegrown talent.
Opener Matt Andersen, also Canadian, got the show rolling and then once Blue Rodeo took the stage, there was no stopping this passionate audience. Although some spent the first few songs tapping their toes and singing along from their seats, it didn’t take long for everyone to be on their feet, many couples even slow dancing in the aisles.
To wrap up the night, Blue Rodeo called on their opener Matt Andersen to help them get ‘Lost Together’. During their performance of ‘Hasn’t Hit Me Yet’, the band stood in front of their mics and called on their fans to take over… creating the ultimate concert sing along experience.
