Roger Hodgson (singer/songwriter/keyboardist of Supertramp) in Ottawa. Small venue, 4 piece backing band, sound quality not great (hockey rinks rarely offer great sound quality) but very enjoyable, especially if one is a hard-core Supertramp fan like me. Played almost all the classics (though not Rudy or Even in the Quietest Moments, sadly) and played them well. Could even hit almost all the high notes. We especially enjoyed the chit-chatting and story-telling between tunes. The guy clearly enjoys his work!
A hockey rink is a small venue?
I saw La Traviata at the hockey rink in Bassano del Grappa. The sound was surprisingly good, but it was a small complex and there seemed to be acoustic modifications.
You know, there's an artistic angle to exploit there - operas performed on ice skates. Yeah, that would be a thing.....
