Oshawa Civic Auditorium

From The Oshawa Civic Auditorium Website

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, the venue only operated from 1964 to 2006.
