Today in Music History
In 1989, Elton John apologized to 35,000 people at a concert in Toronto’s SkyDome for the poor sound quality in the new $500-million stadium. He told the audience: “I hate to see people spend money in a place like this.” John also promised to cut ticket prices in half for his next Toronto appearance.
