Busy preparing for the Rapids Theater show in Niagara Falls with “The Sound Remains The Same” a Led Zeppelin Tribute act recreating the 1973 Zeppelin show at the Aud in Buffalo, NY, which will also include a bonus mini set!
The original show was Sunday July 15, 1973. This one is Sunday July 15, 2012! 970 tickets will be sold for the same price as the show was in 1973. $6.00!! They are going fast… 97 ROCK in Buffalo will be giving tickets away as well! They are sponsoring the show.
Turns out the theater is haunted too, here are some of the facts…
A woman hung herself on the stage we are playing on, just behind the curtain, a projectionist died of a heart attack in the old projection room when it was a movie theater, there is also an old janitor that haunts the place … When Stone Temple Pilots played there recently several people complained of being pushed from behind by unseen hands, and they caught him on camera in the crowd … Typically activity peaks immediately following a show due to the increase in energy, you may feel a whisper in your ear, electric chill, or hear and see the apparition of the woman who killed herself by hanging on stage … The Three Stooges filmed a short movie on the stage there, and Marilyn Monroe was there during her filming of the movie Niagara …
You can see the episode of Ghost Hunters below where they investigated the Rapids Theater hauntings.
