Some concerts near and far to tell you about in a bit. Can you guess the band in this cover photo? Details about this band’s upcoming Abbotsforrd concert are on the way, but I wanted to share these photos of Giles Taylor, a.k.a Freddie Mercury from the Queen: It’s a Kinda Magic tribute show, that was held at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre Saturday Night.
1075 Beach Radio listener/winner/texter Kim Coles won tickets to the show and shared these photos and comments!
Back in the 80’s I went to see The Cult. Guns’N’Roses opened up for them. Now The Cult is on tour this summer with the Stone Temple Pilots, Bush and Bones, and they’re performing in Abbotsford. The cover photo is of The Cult!
