By FYI Staff

Under a perfect sky and a cool evening breeze last Saturday (Aug. 24), Blue Rodeo made history of a sort performing at the Budweiser Stage amphitheatre in Ontario Place, the all-Canadian band’s 20th show at the venue since it opened in 1995.


In the true tradition of keeping it homespun and real, Jim Cuddy’s son was co-billed in the Devin Cuddy Band, alongside longstanding band mate’s Sam Roberts Band.

The expansive show included a setlist of 17 Blue Rodeo treasures, opening with 5 Days in May and closing on Hasn’t Hit Me Yet. After a rousing yell from the audience, the lads returned to encore with Try, I Got Stoned and Missed It, and Lost Together.
