The CNE plays host to thrilling rides, bizarre food combinations and of course, the Bandshell concert venue. Throughout the exhibition, acts from a variety of musical styles take the Bandshell stage, and each show is included in the cost of admission. Rounding out the first week of this year’s event was classic rock act Foghat!
Although only one original member still remains, the sound stayed true as the band played tunes spanning their more than 40 years in the business. Dedicating certain hits to former band members who have passed on, the group acknowledged their beginnings while delivering a great show.
The audience was filled with people of all ages, and it seemed that regardless of whether you listened to “Slow Ride” in the 70s or while rocking out on Guitar Hero 3 in your parent’s basement, Foghat can take you on a nostalgic trip back to your youth, even if just for one night.
