    When the jays aren't playing they have tours of the rogers centre.You get to see alot of the stadium and all the sections. It's a really nice tour and about 15 dollars each. They usually have them on the hour and you pay for it/meet up @ a little office to the right of the main entrance(home of the toronto blue jays sign) and directly across from the cn tower. I enjoyed this tour wayyy more than the cn tower which was expensive and i thought kind of boring by comparison.

    When the roof is open it is a 1000 times better but either way...don't be messing with the Jays...that will not be accepted by us locals.

    I love the Jays. Just don't like that dome ; )
    I would have loved for a game to be going on while up there, one more Stadium I could have checked off.

    Might have to check that out. I've been up on the CN tower a few times. A tour inside the Rogers Centre would be great. It would be either on the 9th afternoon or on the 12th.

    But would of loved to of seen a Jay's game.

    Pre party is less then a 6 minute walk to the ACC.

    It's got a patio too. Sweet. Hope it's sunny on Tuesday & Wednesday.

    Right now that patio is buried in snow
    Wow! Don't think it'll be snowing early May in Toronto, right?
    Looking out the window is not pleasant right now. That patio is easily a snowy wasteland at the moment.

    Good info Dem but warning to those thinking of going there are probably better ways to spend $16. The skydome ISN'T that nice ; )

    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Anyone have an idea of how big the GA pit is for Toronto show relative to other dates on the tour? I've only been in the Pit once before (Worcester MA '13) and the Pit was nearly the whole floor.

    Prolly a long shot, but I'm gonna ask anyway. I'll be in London ON for business this week. Anyone have a extra ticket and could hitch ride to and from the London ON area. I wouldn't be able to leave London until about 4:30 or 5pm(either night). Only looking to attend one show.

    You could always look into via rail and greyhound. There may be a way to find a way to work it around your schedule.

    hmm ...

    @ The Who

    Those Who fans who have tickets for the Toronto show on April 26th at the Air Canada Centre, please note that due to the Toronto Raptors Playoffs which will take place at the Air Canada Centre on the 26th, The Who Hits 50! concert will now take place on Wednesday 27th.

    ..

    What will happen if the Raptors keep winning and they have home games the 2nd week of May? Will they work around Pearl Jam's 10th & 11th ACC shows or will PJ postpone one of their shows for May 9th or May 12th?

    I've been worried about this for awhile, really hope the dates don't get changed.

    I'm quite used to the Raptors choking so I won't worry about this until Lowry and DeRozan prove I have to worry about this.
