I don't know about anyone else, but i would like to see someone like Hollywood Undead, or Egypt Central. but those are very unlikely...

Bring the man who started the hard rock movement.OZZY .Always had the best guitarist and is a legend.Guns n Roses even without Slash would also draw a huge crowd even though Axl's singing these days is not the best but they have a great show.If not Slash and Myles would be great as an opening act as would Kid Rock.

Im sure it was a great time had by ALL, but in all the years that salmon fest has been going on , im thinking ya know there are probably alot and alot of people in st johns and surrounding areas who would absolutely love to be able to attend such events but do to lack of a vehicle , commitments at home , or lack of accomodations . I was thinking gee someone would make a fortune with some coach buses making the trip overnight for the big show ....leave st. john's sat morning , return late saturday evening for the headline acts . you have your drop off points and pickup points ...sign a waiver ( for not showing up after concert) LOL . but seriuosly ....i would pay $40 or more to get a ride out and back ...im absolutely positive someone could manage something , and besides lets say someone has to be to work sunday ....and they leave the concert to drive back to the city or CBS or paradise whereever that may be , theres a huge risk ..... anyways thats my idea ....maybe someone will pick up on it

One can only hope and pray that somehow we land ACDC who are touring next summer. So doubtful though, they usually only make 2 stops in Canada.
