Yesterday's concert for Toronto headlined the Rolling Stones, featured AC/DC and involved a raft of other performers for a crowd numbering half a million. Reportedly, the otherwise peaceable crowd pelted Justin Timberlake with plastic bottles and bran muffins. Too bad we did not get to see much of it on television.

4:04 Perhaps M3 ought not to have promoted itself as the destination for day-long coverage of the concert. Granted, the channel acknowledged in advance that it would not be permitted to broadcast whole sets, but I've been watching now for four hours and I've seen maybe six minutes of music. In fact, I just got a better sense of the concert by opening the window in my office and listening. And I live in Ottawa.

Scott Feschuk's concert review also points out the eerie resemblance of Jian Ghomeshi to Barbara Frum.
