Toronto Rocks Review

Hop To

by AVForums Jul 1, 2004

    On July 30th 2003 close on half a million people gathered in Downsview Airport, Toronto for “the biggest party in Toronto's history - Canadians and their international friends, all ages, all races, all here to celebrate a city, a people and a country deeply affected by Sars.” And so in an attempt at allaying fears and putting Canada back on the tourism map a group of (mostly) aging rock stars et all put on a show to end all shows... at least that's what the powers to be would have us believe. With what I would call an “interestingly diverse” line up of stars this Toronto Rocks concert is a little old fashioned for my tastes, and barring the appearance of Justin Timberlake and AC/DC who simply steal the show, all the acts here have seen better days. Then again, who am I to knock a concert that attracted 490,000 fans?!

    With Dan Ackroyd and James Belushi hosting and performing, the scene is set - this is a middle of the road affair, and will most likely appeal to those of slightly maturing years... well I enjoyed it, anyway!
