Chloe; No cameras allowed, I don't think...maybe I'll try anyway. Yes, he is beautiful, and Nova Scotian :)
Steve; You and Chris need to catch up; the former lead singer died a number of years ago, but they have a new Canadian lead.
Blackcrag; Plan to, thanks :)
Stephanie; We had the tv show here as well and people went wild becuase the home town boy won; and they crowd tonight will go crazy because this is their first concert here; ever. And they were one of my favourite bands in the 80s....fun fun.
I am so jealous ... have fun, dance yourself silly !! You know, they are an Aussie band, but I haven't even heard them since they took on JD !! Do they still sound like INXS ... no-one could replace Michael Hutchence, so I imagine the sound is a bit different. Still good, though, I'm sure !! Have a ball, Cathy. Take care, Meow
I've seen them, they are fantastic, sound even better now they have JD Fortune...he's fantastic, better than revolting Michael,easier on the eye and he's not a screamer like Hutchence. All in all brilliant show :o)
Hello Friends; Just to clarify...INXS is still an Aussie band, but they have a new lead singer who is Canadian. J.D. Fortune. The concert was sold out; actually broke a Canadian record for the fasting sold out concert, I believe; 9000 people all dancing and singing to our newest Rock Star. It was a grand party. I wasn't able to bring my camera, but I will post about it later tonight.
I'm not a lumberjack or a fur trader.
I don't live in an igloo, eat blubber or own a dogsled.
I don't know Jimmy Suzie or Sally from Canada,
Although I'm certain they're very nice.
I have a prime minister, not a president,
I speak English and French, not American.
And I pronounce it 'about' not 'a-boot.'
I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
I believe in peacekeeping, not policing;
Diversity, not assimilation.
And that the beaver is a proud and noble animal.
A tuque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch.
And it's pronounced zed. OK? Not zee. Zed.
Canada is the second-largest land mass,
the first nation of women's hockey
and the best part of North America.
My name is Cathy and I am Canadian.
