With an average population of 35 Million in Canada, that means (quick math) about one third of the nation were watching the broadcast. Not including the 6000 people in attendance at the actually concert and the thousands who flocked to the bands hometown of Kingston, Ontario to watch the show in Springer Market Sq. down the street from the arena.
