7. He has a really, really good soul....

Same with John Legend....they have been sincere and embraced the community through the mass shooting and the 15 F-4 Tornado's we had Memorial Day...

Dayton has had some real shit come down in the past 90 days....

Love our locals.

The venue is right near Miami Valley Hospital too! .....probably why we keep hearing the siriens

Proud of our local STARS....

10. Thanks. Hard to hear, understandably

But can see size if crowd and they've been telling who's there.

This linked right up to the FB stream. The other linked up also but this one worked better for me.

19. Hi, FarPoint

I tried the link a few times and it worked but I'm doing it on my phone and we don't get along.

When I clicked on it my phone asked me how I wanted to open it. Chrome, FB. They both worked.

I'm still learning how to copy&paste with the phone. Sometimes it works.

Back in the 70's & 80's I worked part time as a bouncer in a few places in the Oregon District but mostly up and down the Dixie Strip.

My full time bouncing job was in a bar up north of Dayton called The Brass Rail.

Those were some good times. Memory might be a bit sketchy about some of it but it was good times.

23. The Dixie Strip is pretty much history.

Between the cops raiding strip clubs - leading to their closure - and the tornado that destroyed pretty much all of Dixie and Siebenthaler, it's just a smattering of used car dealerships now.

25. Yup, it started in the late 80's.

I think the last time I was down that way I lived in Piqua and we drove down Hoagies for pizza and draft beer, then down to where the McCook Theater used to be just to see what it looked like.

The Strip was pretty run down then. Then they closed all those no tell motels and no other much has moved in to replace them.

That was probably in the very late 90's.

We moved out of Piqua back in 1999.

Still north of Dayton though. Those tornadoes went to the South of us to Dayton and north of us to Celina.

20. Wouldn't have missed it.

This is EPIC.

BTW, the sirens you hear in the stream are little fire department vehicles (like golf carts) attending to the crowd.

21. Lady Gaga and Chris Rock were no-shows.

She was definitely here, doing a sound check earlier:

Celebrities have been spotted in the Oregon District performing sound checks ahead of the Gem City Shine event later in the day. Kanye West hosted a Sunday Service at RiverScape MetroPark and Lady Gaga was seen on the stage doing her sound check.




https://www.wdtn.com/news/local-news/watch-live-kanye-west-hosts-sunday-service-at-riverscape/

... and she was spotted just prior to the show by volunteers guarding the bus docking area.

Chris Rock was on the playlist:



I'm thinking that the show ran late, including two full sets by Chance the Rapper and Stevie Wonder, both of which were absolutely stunning.

Not complaining, though. It was a thorough blast and a huge boost to a grieving city.
