With all due respect to all concerts ever held, the greatest tour was the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour of 1970. Joe Cocker, Leon Russell, the players and singers…..man, there has never been anything like it. I saw him a little over a year later (March 16, 1972. Montreal Forum) and although it attained nowhere near the level of greatness that Mad Dogs did, it still ranks as one of the best shows I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Ever.
As far as the show at the cavernous, gymnasium-like venue that was the Convention Centre….we’ll let that one rest in peace. Thanks for the memories Joe Cocker.
