This Weekend’s Events & Offers

If you’re in Toronto this weekend, you should probably consider dropping by at the Toronto East Vinyl Record & Collectibles Show, which will be held this Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm at the Heron Park Community Centre (at 292 Manse Rd) in Scarborough, Ontario.

This is one of Canada’s largest record and music memorabilia conventions and admission is only $5. But if you’re planning on simply relaxing and buying online, you should probably look at what Indigo Books and Music has to offer this weekend, especially if you’re an RBC credit cardholder.

In addition to the free shipping offer on orders over $25, they will offer ten times the Plum Rewards Points on orders over $30 this weekend. And some RBC credit card orders will get a $10 credit back on their card on purchases over $50, provided they load up this offer and use it by September 30, 2019.

Hopefully this information will help you find something you’ve been looking for this weekend.

Live Magic – August 9th, 1986

Freddie Mercury’s last live performance with Queen was recorded on this day in 1986 in Knebworth, England. And this album, my first and one of my very favourite live albums, features some of this performance.

The other tracks featured on this compact disc, which is now only available as a Japanese import, were recorded a few days prior during The Magic Tour, at Wembley Stadium in London, England on July 12th, 1986 and the Népstadion in Budapest, Hungary on July 27th, 1986. And more complete recordings for those performances were released on DVD and Blu-ray.
