So it is PNE time in Vancouver, and I managed to talk a friend into going with me Monday night. It had to be Monday as there is a free concert (free with general admission) every night, and Monday was Kenny Rogers.
He was awesome. Not only were his songs sung well, he was very funny. He made jokes, and told stories. He even joke that one day they would wheel him out in a wheelchair and he would roll right off the stage.
He showed a few clips from "The Gambler" as he sang that song. The only bad part was that he cut our a part of "Coward of the County"... But I guess you can't sing about a woman being raped when you are singing at a fair...
There were also horses, ponies, oxen, cows, rabbits and more at the fair. We watched the Superdogs which was great. There was a market, oxygen bar, tribute bands, lots of food. I tried a deep fried mars bar, a deep fried oreo and a deep fried poptart...
