Oshawa Civic Auditorium

Former Location –
On April 22, 1979, the Auditorium hosted two benefit concerts for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind by the Rolling Stones, as part of a plea deal after Keith Richards was charged with possession of heroin. The auditorium that was owned by the CNIB had only 250 seats, and a hockey playoff precluded use of Toronto’s 18,000-seat Maple Leaf Gardens.

In May 2006, Alice Cooper appeared in concert here, they were one of the final acts to perform here.
