Hedley at Face Off

Hedley (, one of my favourite bands, and certainly my daughter’s favourite band, was at Yonge-Dundas Square doing their sound check for Face Off. The area was just starting to get packed with people, including a lot of young girls waiting for the bands to play. I think Hedley will be back tonite at 6:45pm to 7:00pm for the start of the season opener hockey game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens.

From the Yonge-Dundas Square website: “NHL Face-Off is the NHL's annual season-opening event.  This year, the celebration comes to Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto on October 7, 2010.  From noon until the conclusion of the Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs game at Air Canada Centre, the NHL® will treat fans at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto to live musical performances with Hedley, Down With Webster, and Hey Rosetta!; interactive attractions that test hockey skills; prizing and giveaways, including a trip to the 2011 NHL Heritage Classic™; special guest appearances, including former NHL players; food, beverage and merchandise tents; and live CBC and VERSUS game broadcasts on giant screens, including the Yonge-Dundas Square video boards.  CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, Versus and the NHL Network™ will broadcast live from the event throughout the day, including portions of the CBC's pre-game show, Scotiabank Hockey Tonight, beginning nationally at 6:30 p.m. ET.”
Yonge Street is closed for the event with beer gardens and the main stage extending onto the road. Beautiful Bud Light girls were walking around posing with the crowd and there are plenty of contests and giveaways going on. Don’t forget, the festival and concerts are free.
Here is the lead singer Tim Baker with guitarist Josh Ward from the group Hey Rosetta playing on the Face Off stage later in the afternoon.
