One of the best concerts I’ve been to was in Toronto about 10 years ago. It was a benefit concert for a local hospital.

The line-up was amazing – Jann Arden, Sarah McLachlan, Josh Grobin, Bryan Adams and others !!! Every performer was outstanding. Jann Arden was hilarious!

Bryan really rocked the place that night. He performed for at least 30 minutes at a very high level taking us through many of his hits.
