Reviews

By January Ellen

I was a mere eleven years young and had won a radio contest to attend Cyndi's show in Toronto. Needless to say, it was like winning the lottery because Cyndi was then, and still is today, my idol. It was the very first concert I ever attended, and part of the prize was transportation by limo to and from the show (my first limo ride too!). I sat in row 29, and being just a kid, this was a disadvantage because everyone stood up when Cyndi took the stage, and even on my tip-toes I still wasn't tall enough. Luckily the person beside me didn't mind my use of their shoulder to lean on! I don't remember much about the actual show, except these few points: 

1. People rushed the aisle when Cyndi came on, and I felt stupid for not thinking of that tactic myself. (This learned behaviour came in handy at the Dixie Chicks show in 2001, when I snuck up the aisle from the ninth row to claim front row centre!)

 

2. Cyndi's hair was really, really red.

 

3. Part-way thru the show she changed into a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey.

 

4. She got big cheers out of the audience in the stands when she would go from one side of the stage to the other, and shout up to the "people in the hills". If you are lucky enough to come across an old magazine called "Graffiti", you will find photos from this show in it. I used to have that issue but lost it along my travels. I couldn't tell you which issue has it, but it's out there somewhere I'm sure. The Bangles opened the show, and all I recall from that was Suzanna Hoff's bob hair bouncing around during "Going Down to Liverpool". I purchased a poster, which I have seen on Ebay many times, but it got so battered I had to retire it from the wall. I also purchased a square pin that said "She Bop" and featured a picture of Cyndi in sunglasses.

I also still have my original ticket stub from that show, but I don't have a scanner so I can't show it to you. It was yellow. Overall, a great show, and I'll always remember the excitement of seeing Cyndi live for the very first time.

More reviews coming soon!
