I was front row with my girlfriend and daughters. Gowan and his band had lots of energy and a great stage presence. The sound was amazing for a concert. Only draw back was Security didn't let us stand and dance for the first 45 minutes. My youngest daughter almost fell asleep. You can't sit for a Gowan concert. That should be some sort of crime. Once we could stand and dance the concert was pretty close to perfect.

The show was awesome. It started a bit later than expected. The only problem is that I git ran over my feet by a motorized wheelchair backing up too fast. And I was in pain for the first hour and the rest of the evening was great . Thanks

About Gowan

Lawrence Gowan is a Canadian musician, born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 22, 1956. Gowan has been both a solo artist and a member of the band Styx. His musical style is usually classified in the category of progressive rock.

His career:
At the age of nineteen, he earned an ARCT in classical piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, in Toronto. Upon graduation, he enjoyed modest local success with the band Rhinegold in 1976.

After the band broke up five years later, Gowan began what was to become a very long and successful solo career under the stage name Gowan, releasing his first album under that name in 1982. This album contained the singles "Victory" and "Keep Up The Fight". His 1985 album Strange Animal was his commercial breakthrough in Canada, spawning the hit singles "A Criminal Mind", "(You're A) Strange Animal" and "Cosmetics". His 1987 follow up Great Dirty World gave him another hit single with "Moonlight Desires," featuring Jon Anderson (from Yes) on backing vocals as well as the fan favorite "Dedication".

1990's Lost Brotherhood featuring Rush's Alex Lifeson on guitar', however, was a commercial disappointment, and Gowan pursued a change of direction. He released the more acoustic, adult contemporary ...but you can call me Larry in 1993 under his full name, returning to the Canadian pop charts with "When There's Time For Love", "Soul's Road" and "Dancing On My Own Ground". He subsequently released The Good Catches Up in 1995. In 1997, Gowan released two live CDs: Sololive - No Kilt Tonight containing an amazing rendition of Ragtime's classic "King Chanteclerc Rag", and Au Québec with a cover of Harmonium's "Pour Un Instant" as well as his first composition in French, "Stéphanie", for his dedicated fan base in the province of Quebec.

In 1997, Gowan released "Healing Waters" as a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales after her death. However, despite what many believe, this song was not originally written for this purpose. It was, in fact, used in its original form in the movie When the Bullet Hits the Bone (starring Jeff Wincott) from 1995, two years prior to the accident that killed Diana. This song is not listed in the credits for the movie, however, it is very prominent in the film. After her death, the lyrics were modified into the version that Gowan fans have come to know.

His classic "A Criminal Mind" was covered in 2005 by Canadian hip-hop artist Maestro; Gowan appears in the video and his vocals are sampled on the track.


He also guest starred on the Canadian animated comedy series Chilly Beach.

In February 2006, Lawrence did four orchestra accompanied concerts in London, Ontario and Kitchener, Ontario.
