Toronto Gets A (Blue) Rodeo Drive
January 22, 2013
Amazing news out of Blue Rodeo’s home town of Toronto today. The Toronto Star reports that the band, who have a deep history in the east-end neighbourhood of Riverdale, will be honoured with their very own street! The new Blue Rodeo Drive will run along the eastern side of the new Bridgepoint Hospital, at Gerrard Street and Broadview Avenue.
Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) told Blue Rodeo is “a band that connects a lot of people through their great music, and the street will connect a lot of people as they go through the newly revitalized site. Sometimes we don’t pay enough homage to our musicians, and it’s great to thank them for their tremendous music.”
Construction on the street is still at least a year away, but once it’s done, Blue Rodeo Drive is sure to be a Toronto destination point for Blue Rodeo fans the world over.
