Big Person Fete Allows Children Too
Sir David Wants You To Drive In To See His First Show In A Year
By Stephen Weir: If you are a David Rudder fan and have missed seeing “Sir David” perform during the pandemic, honk your horn this July 31st. And if you really want to hear some of the new material he has written over the past year or so, honk again and flash your high beams.
On Saturday July 31st Soca legend David Rudder will be performing live in Toronto for the first time since the shutdown. He will be outdoors, on stage at the City View Drive-In playing for a lot filled with parked cars! The car-only venue is back this summer since the relaxation of Covid restrictions in the city. The drive-in is located adjacent to the Rebel Night Club on Polson Street in the Toronto Harbour District.
The concert is being staged by former radio personality and now promoter, Dr. Jay (Da King Of Soca). He is calling the event his Big People Fete. He announced earlier this week that the concert is already 50% sold out. “This is a family event and tickets are sold per car meaning you can come with as many people as there are seat-belts in your vehicle for a single price.”
Ticket holders have to stay in their autos (no motorcycles allowed) throughout the show. There are washrooms and food trucks on site. As well, you are allowed to bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks.
The show starts at 8 pm and tickets range in price from $110 to $180 per vehicle.
