Friday October 25th Toronto ’The Linsmore Tavern’
Here is The Wholigans lineup (with Chris on guitar) that is coming to Toronto the first week.
After 20 seconds of ‘Pinball Wizard’
This is WGFA & the *Smashing* My Generation
Over the years major music acts have appeared at the venue, internationally famous jazz performers, including Grover Washington, Jr., Charles Mingus, and Al Di Meola, and rock acts such as U2, Moxy , Elvis Costello, The Ramones, Dream Theater, The Wholigans in 1984, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, Blondie, Meat Loaf, Jimi Hendrix, Queens of the Stone Age.
On March 4, 1977, looking for an unprepossessing venue to record in, The Rolling Stones played the first of two performances at the club, billing themselves pseudonymously as “The Cockroaches”. It was their first live club date in 14 years. Their opening act was Canadian rockers April Wine of Montreal. The Stones show was recorded and released as one side (Side 3) of the double album Love You Live, which reached #3 in the UK, #5 in the US.
April Wine took advantage of the high-tech remote recording equipment brought by the Stones to record their own show for a live album as well.
We have a extremely limited guest list for this show limited to family, as we know EVERYONE in Toronto and could fill up the place with friends.
We would love to put all of you on the list, but unfortunately that’s not possible this time sorry,
We do hope to see a lot of old friends and ‘Wholigans’ there though

The Toronto show was amazing ,playing to a crowd of 3000+
