Heritage Grannies Don't Like the Satanic Rocking And/Or Rolling

The Friends of the Halifax Commons, an offshoot of the Heritage Committee, (kind of like the Heritage Committee but for the Commons) have got their knickers in a knot that this summer tens of thousands of young whippersnappers will flock to the Halifax Commons to drink beer, smoke the devil grass, and experience KISS and Paul McCartney. For those of you who don't like fun, don't worry: here's one group of people whose soul objective in life is to kill the buzz for everybody else, and rest assured they will vociferously be making their objections known to the City.

From the Friends of the Halifax Commons Website: "Things Aren’t Getting Any Better ..In 2007 HRM signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)....with concert promoters for two mega concerts/year on the North Common."

A picture of the offending superstructure (the stage and speaker towers from the other year's Stones concert) appears on the Friends of the Commons Website. The tower, which will be over one storey tall, is completely not keeping in style with Halifax's 18th century heritage, can be seen from Citadel Hill, and is within a mere two miles of St Paul's Church.

Next thing you know Elvis will be shown on TV shaking his hips!
