We went to see Royal Wood and the Good Lovelies last night, and to enjoy the atmosphere of Massey Hall before its two-year closure for upgrades and renovation. (Gordon Lightfoot will be the last headliner, June 29 and 30).
I bought the Royal Wood tickets while Danica was in Australia visiting Visnja and Stanko. I figured I needed something to lure her back from all that sunshine.
We are both fans of the Good Lovelies and now I am also a fan of Royal Wood. He is a masterful showman. “Oh, shut up,” was his response to welcoming applause. “I like him already,” said a fellow a couple of seats from us.
Here are a couple of spare shots that wouldn’t fit in the slideshow.
I hope renovations won’t remove the cozy, friendly, warm, fuzzy intimacy of the theatre.
Danica and I agreed that we would have gotten our tickets’ worth, just with the Good Lovelies performance. This JUNO award winning song from 2010 was one of our first favourites.
