Seeing Janis at Winnipeg Stadium 3 Months Before her Death.

STORY BY: Linda Borodenko
YEAR: 1970
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Linda is a huge Janis Joplin fan, and saw her perform at Winnipeg Stadium on July 1st, 1970 as part of the Festival Express. She had saved up to buy 2 $15 tickets, and chose to go with her friend instead of her new boyfriend (now her husband!). Janis died on October 4th of that same year, only months after the concert. Thanks for sharing, Linda.
