    Hey guys I believe if you wanted to know these shows that have been coming to CUP are being brought in by a promoter. Basically they rent the building for 'x' amount of days and it will cost them 'x' amount of money no matter how many tickets they sell. That means that there is little to no risk of the event costing the city/province any money. Also Max Power I also hope he sings that one. One of my favorites too. LOL

      Hey Jack on the rocks.... If the politicians on the island stopped wasting money we could have lower taxes. Then maybe we could get some employers come to the island and create some real jobs. The only people who benefit from taxpayer funded rock concerts are the hotel and restaurant owners and they all pay minimum wage.

    This guy was one of the greatest of the great wrestlers. Good to see he's found a second career.

    Saw this guys do his thing at the rink in O'Leary in the 80's and he was very good. At the time he was doing a tribute to the Beetles with wigs and costumes. I wonder if he'll do any of that?
