On August 8th 1995 while on holiday in Toronto I saw my first ever Foo Fighters gig at The Phoenix.  The show was sold-out well in advance of me arriving in Toronto in July, so I turned to an ad in the free listings magazine EYE and paid $60 for a $12 ticket. Not only was it my first Foo gig, but it was my first gig ever, so the whole thing was a weird blur hightened by the fact I was doing it alone in a strange country.

While reminiscing online about the gig in 2005 it turned out Adam the guy responsible for the gig poster lived a few streets away from my Aunt & not only that but he still had a copy of the poster which he kindly sent to her.

Anyway, here are some items from the concert:
