If anyone out there is thinking about joining us in NYC remember bjb here has two great tickets that are still available. Why sit in the balcony when you can be way up front. I promise not to throw popcorn at you. C'mon you only live once !

Thanks for the reminder, Bill -- sorry I won't see you all there!

The Town Hall confirmed that although I won't be there in person to pick up the tickets I paid for with my credit card, someone using my confirmation number can pick them up.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for keeping track! Several possibilities have fallen through, so the tickets are still available. Great seats too, Row F.

In March I foolishly paid for two tickets for New York via Ticketmaster, I Now cannot afford to go! Ticketmasters website states that there can be no transfers to anyone else. These are willcall tickets, which means I had to have ID and a letter of authorisation etc. as the tickets were not purchased on my credit card. I Wanted to give these 2 tickets away to someone on this site, but don't know if I can. I Know i've left it late but is there anyway round this? I'd sooner someone have these, than see Gord seeing 2 empty seats! They are row G Orchestra seats, by the way.

Nice job with the song list. I was at the concert tonight - my first Lightfoot concert. Despite the vocals being a bit low in the beginning, I thought he and the band sounded great.


Cheers

Okay, don't leave us hanging - was there anyone there last night who can fill in the blanks for the "song(s) I don't recognize" posted by JBG?

Thanks for filling us in, Bill. I'm sure your memory is just fine. I had already figured out Shadows and Clouds Of Loneliness (by context and omission), should have realized In My Fashion was missing from it's usual spot early in the show, should have thought of 14K Gold as an opener (but didn't), and had #10 down to Watchman or I Used To Be A Country Singer (1st set, 12 string song).

I think this set list was even more fun because it wasn't 100% complete!

He didn't perform I Used To Be A Country Singer.

No. I saw him in Boston in 1981, New Jersey (Garden State Arts Center) in 1984, Stamford CT in 1994, and now, in Ridgefield CT in 2010.

Always did like that opening line of 'SUMMERTIME DREAM', makes for a good signature.
