    They may be old but they are still selling a lot of tickets wherever they play. You might as well put some salt on your hat Keeping it Real because your going to need some. Unlike the hockey teams that have called Mile One Centre home, at least these old guys have proven talent and fill the place. . Hockey is done, get over it and move on.

    With such acts as Charlie Pride and Rick Springfield gracing Mile One's stage, who needs a full-time tenant such as a hockey team there. I can't believe our luck at seeing these icons, and in the prime of their careers nonetheless.

    They should start booking concerts at Hoyles-Escasoni instead of Mile One. Similar demographic.

    It's still a hockey rink. At least give the hockey fans of the city an NHL or even an AHL exibition game this Fall!

    If they actually sell enough tickets for this show to go ahead, I'll eat my hat.

    A blast from the past, but apparently Rick Still delivers.
    Now, let's wait for the no-one-but-old-acts play here comments....
