While Halifax played host to some pretty sweet shows this year, we still missed out on some of the biggies. Despite continued rumours of an outdoor show on the tarmac at CFB Shearwater, U2 decided to avoid our part of the country. But that’s OK, they’re bound to make their way here eventually. It only took the Stones 42 years to make it to the Maritimes.
Runners-up: Rolling Stones, Nine Inch Nails/Queens of the Stone Age/Death From Above 1979
