Who knew some of music’s great ‘holy #%&!’ moments happened right here in KW?

REVERBERATIONS: Our Rock & Soul Legacy takes you to the Waterloo hardware store where the Guess Who wrote American Woman, and to the backyard where Supertramp- during the peak of their fame- played an impromptu poolside concert (neighbours called the cops). You’ll hear how Roger Miller wrote the Country Music classic King of the Road here, and of the night fans packed a downtown nightclub to see Lady Gaga. Relive a time when Blues’ royalty reigned in a Kitchener nightspot, and when legends and legends-to-be played the University of Waterloo.  Discover the rough-hewn Waterloo Hotel that shook to the music of The Band and Bill Haley, and the music legends who rocked Lulu’s and The Coronet.  

REVERBERATIONS maps out the backstage stories, artifacts, and superstar encounters that happened all around you.

REVERBERATIONS is included with your purchase of The Rolling Stones | UNZIPPED tickets, get your tickets – you don’t want to miss out on being able to say – I was there!
