Well Live 8 will be taking place in Barrie at the old Molson Park. Not poor old TO. As Barrie is one of the towns I've called home, lived there from '73 to '85 (some of the worst years of my life, why would anyone want to be a teenager again), good for it. But if your driving north for a long weekend, better head through Barrie on the Friday, cause it will be a parking lot on the 400 from Toronto to Barrie.

Here are some of the bands that are supposed to play in Barrie.
Bryan Adams, Celine Dion (by satellite), African Guitar Summit, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, Bruce Cockburn, Bryan Adams, The Bachman Cummings Band, Deep Purple, DobaCaracol featuring Kna'an, Gordon Lightfoot, Great Big Sea, Jann Arden, Les Trois Accords, Motley Crue, Our Lady Peace, Sam Roberts, Simple Plan, Tegan & Sara, The Tragically Hip, Tom Cochrane, Hosts: Dan Aykroyd, Tom Green
