Title: The Romantics 2011 Tour Dates: Ideas for Canada
Post by domingo on Jan 30th, 2011 at 4:55am
Would love to see The Romantics play in the city of Regina, which is in the province of Saskatchewan. Regina is a beautiful arts-oriented city often called "the queen city." It has a big music scene and gets a large number of concerts at clubs and of course Casino Regina, where most shows sell out before the actual concert. They mainly feature artists from the 60s, 70s and 80s in the genres of rock and country. 

The Knack was scheduled to play Casino Regina, shortly before Doug Fieger passed away. At Casino Regina, I've also seen The Smithereens, Restless Heart, Rick Springfield, Tears For Fears, The Ventures (with lead guitarist Nokie Edwards), Joan Jett, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Status Quo, Gary Lewis & The Playboys, Glen Campbell, John Fogerty, Hermans Hermits Starring Peter Noone, Merle Haggard, Gin Blossoms, Dwight Yoakam, The Turtles, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Billy Joe Royal, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Grass Roots with Rob Grill and The Beach Boys.

Other ideas for The Romantics would be to play at McPhillips St. Station in Winnepeg, Manitoba. It is very similar to Casino Regina.

You might be asking, "why Canada?" The reason is because there is a very strong market and fan appreciation for oldies and classic rock concerts. I've had the honor of seeing artists most people may never have the opportunity of seeing perform live in the U.S., a good example would be the British rock group Status Quo, who some rock critics say is currently the longest-running British rock band. You just don't see as many great concerts in the U.S compared to Canada.
