¼ to 5, here I am; Life is an open road; destination; home!
I know you probably think “ooo boring” but I tell ya; “no exciting”. My friend Sonia is meeting me home for about ¼ to 6. The big event: Bryan Adams at the Copps Coliseum (Hamilton, ON). Yay!
Hamilton is about 1 hr away from Toronto. The show is at 8 so we got to leave early and fight traffic. Although it sometimes feels like traffic cuts like a knife, when you get to your destination, it feels so right. The night is heavy, foggy and a mist covers the road. The windshield of the car is all fogged up. We hit a bit of traffic from Bay to Jameson (as usual) but then, it’s all fine from there. I can tell you straight from the heart that luck was on our side. By 7:30 we were parking 2 blocks from the arena.
Long story short, needless to say that Bryan Adams lived up to and way beyond my standards and expectations. Mind you, I didn’t really have expectations, I was just looking forward to see him perform live. The little dude (from our seat) Canadian rocker star hit the stage and transported us way up on cloud number nine.
All I’ll say is that the show was great. By the time the show was done, we got back in the car and drove back to Toronto. The fine rain and mist covering the road was now only a memory of the Summer of 69.
