Not only is the ferry a PITA & costly, the expense of going to see a big act in Vancouver is so prohibitive now from VR Island, that I think that I'm done with it. I've seen Santana & Clapton (twice) over there in the past decade & it turns out being a $500 to $1000 adventure.

Since my daughter lives in Victoria with a complimentary B&B, I wish more acts would show up there, but unfortunately their venue is just too small to make a buck.

Concerts on DVD/BD on a good Axiom HT system is the way to go for us now...
