    From Buffalo Business First (sometimes the article shows up free, sometimes you need a paid subscription):

    On a sunny spring afternoon, Asian tourists climbed off a bus in the Fallsview District of Niagara Falls and made their way toward the iconic waterfalls, many with cameras in hand.

    Those who didn’t immediately head to a nearby overview were busy taking selfies near the Fallsview Casino.

    Those 40 tourists are symbolic of the more than 14 million people a year who visit Niagara Falls, Ontario. They come not only for the dramatic views but for a growing list of attractions.

    Daltrey reigns o’er Niagara Falls

    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.
