I saw The Band for a second time, in June 1970, when they performed as part of the Festival Express. Here is a description from Wikipedia:
"Festival Express was staged in three Canadian cities: Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary, during the summer of 1970. Rather than flying in to each city, the musicians traveled by chartered train… The train journey between cities ultimately became a combination of non-stop jam sessions and partying, fueled by alcohol.
On the way to Winnipeg, the second stop on the tour, the train stopped in Chapleau, Ontario, to replenish its dwindling alcohol supply, buying out the entire stock of a small liquor store."
Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and The Band were amongst the headliners.[/quote]
Damn, I thought I was old.
