Default Baltimore Show 8/5/15

Anyone going to the Pier 6 show in Baltimore? Looks like a nice venue for August.

We can't make it there this year, but Pier 6 is a neat location for the show. We've been there to see Gordon when we visit Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

We'll be at the Baltimore show 8-5 and hoping the weather's good since it's an outdoor venue. Looking forward to it!

We're looking forward to the show. I have read conflicting reports about the acoustics but we'll see what we shall see. Some old-timers may recall a fella I might run into that night. I'm not a big bro-hugger but I will hug him for all of you that remember him. Funny how the "good old days" on corfid had so many colorful characters most of whom are in the wind somewhere on the Carefree Highway now...

I'll be there as well. I driven hours to see him over the years and can't pass up a 30 minute drive this time.

Al,

Lizanne always worries about stalkers when I post seat numbers but I think we'll be OK. We will be in SECTION 102 ROW C SEATS 1 & 3. I'm still the short haired/bald guy with the tropical shirts just a little older and... Hope we can meet up for some memorable photos. Sounds like a Marvel Comics movie title " The Watchman meets BILLW " in the flesh.

Hope to catch up with you and yours!

Bill check your PMs

Lol!! I won't miss the shirt!! My little girl will be in tow and I told her that when she goes back to school she'll be the only kid to be able to say she saw Gordon Lightfoot this summer and her teachers are probably all too young to even know who he is.

I was a pleasure to meet Bill and his lovely wife. We had seats very close to each other and very close to the stage. Carter, the new guitar player (I guess not so new now), was great. Great times! Great concert!

So one of the first things that Gord told the audience was that he had "walking Pneumonia" and ,of course, I heard "rockin' Pneumonia" until he said it again. But the show must go on and it did not seem to degrade the performance at all in my opinion.

Lizanne has a setlist but she isn't here and I see it's already posted at lightfoot.ca! Pretty close to all the recent shows and that's fine as fine can be.

Lovely venue but it was pretty hot last night. It's right at the end of a pier in Baltimore's Inner Harbor with plenty of food and beverages for sale and ample "facilities".

The crowd itself was on fire and there were at least three standing ovations and it seemed to help him press on.

So the first time I meet TheWatchman and it's the first song Gord plays, nice!

Al and his daughter were lovely and the four of us had a nice chat before the show leaning up against the stage like we owned the place. Seats were great and one plus... we were quite near the speakers needed to push the sound into an open air tent venue and it was great, sort of like being midway back at a rock show, nice and loud.

Y'all know all this but just from my opinion the band is acting more like a band these days. Rick and Carter doing backup vocals a bit more and Gord and Carter doing more stand-up close together with guitars nearly touching. Don't know if it's a trend but we saw it twice within a week. I like it.

We met JBrew and her husband and that was nice that she braved a friendly hello at intermission. It's why I try and post my seat locations.

As soon as I remember how to post pictures I will...

Bill

It was a grand night Char even if I forgot my shirts (what is the Canadian word for ironed?) that were on hangers. Even though we paid for the room twice (we had two pre-paid reservations on the 31st and none for the 5th). But since no one cares that I had a t-shirt (clean and pressed) on and no one cares that I lost a bit of coinage it was real nice. After 5 minutes at the hotel pool everyone relaxed and it was smooth from there on.

Since pictures won't post here anymore no one even knows I broke the tropical shirt tradition (don't want to offend anyone by naming only 1 tropical island chain as I know there are many of equal value all deserving of our respect). But since I am honest, to a fault I guess, I will admit I had on an orange t-shirt.

Just overdoing the details a bit since this is the official end of my first week of retirement and we have a new puppy. "What the heck is this 62 year old man taking about"? many of our vast membership is pondering about now. Well the puppy is sleeping on my feet so I figure if I keep typing she'll stay asleep. I'd post a picture if I could. Let me email Florian and offer to help him pay for more space.

You would have liked the venue and, I imagine, the dinner as well. But now that I'm on this so-called "fixed income" we're going to be eating more pizza and hot dogs at the venues. Seriously though the food at Pier 6 concession stands looked and smelled fine as fine can be.

Missed you guys,

Bill

OK it seems like you can do it if you use a website such as photobucket. To share you need to use the URL option which does not use up space on corfid but connects you to the stored image(s). Which is the way I used to do it in way-back days until corfid started allowing more options.

Or perhaps Florian fixed something while we were talking about it?

Thanks Bill! I'm glad you had fun and frankly a little regretful now that I didn't get tickets too! Was the venue like Aston? I loved that outdoor feeling! The pics are great - the Watchman's daughter is cute and your Baltimore t-shirt is quite fitting imo. That's not to say that I think you should give up entirely on the tropical shirt tradition lol.
