Re: I dread playing outdoors
Yeah 115, the stage was facing the sun, it had a black floor and a huge half shell white top with no moving air, it was about 4 pm when we went on.
The group before us had their guitar player go down as he got off stage from dehydration and had to be taken to the hospitol. The EMT's told us that
we had to keep drinking water while on stage and kept delivering cold water to the band as we played. Actually it was the only way we would have made
it through the show. It really took it out of you. But I would do it again ! Windsor rocked with the Detroit skyline right across the river and the great crowd !!!
The next day was London Canada, not as bad though as there was a nice breeze and we were out of the sun.
