Daltrey reigns o’er Niagara Falls

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

As any longtime Who fan will tell you, the best concerts were always the ones that felt like they could fall apart at any second. A blown amp. A destroyed drum kit. At their peak, The Who brought a volcanic energy to the stage that made every show unruly and unpredictable.

So it was amusing — and a bit old school — when an angry Roger Daltrey abruptly halted the show at Fallsview Casino Monday night. He had been battling his ear piece all night, and it finally boiled over during the crescendo of Baba O’Riley. Not content to muff the ending, he barked orders to someone off stage while the band stood frozen.

“We’ll start it again!,” he yelled, and his anger fueled an even better Baba as the crowd roared in approval.

$7M upgrade at ‘here to stay’ Casino Niagara

From the Niagara Falls Review:

A $7-million upgrade to Casino Niagara expected to be completed by mid November is another example the facility — which originally was meant to be temporary — is “here to stay,” says Niagara Casinos president Richard Taylor.

“The property was starting to get a little bit tired, and it was in need of a rebuild, and that was sort of the impetus behind all of this, was the need to recreate what this property is, and to give the customers more of what it is that they’re looking for,” said Taylor.

“But it’s not just this current project. With our partnership with (Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation), there’s been a $20-million investment in this property over the last couple of years, on the level upstairs, and a number of the other pieces of infrastructure here. So we’re approaching a $30-million investment at this property within the last couple of years. It’s a significant part of our business, and it’s here to stay.”
