Default Meadowbrook July 31

Last Wednesday, I had the good fortune to attend the Gordon Lightfoot concert at Meadowbrook in Rochester Hills, Michigan with Anne P, who many of you know.

Meadowbrook is a typical summer music festival venue, with a covered pavilion that seats about 5,000 and room for seating on grass hills (2,000) behind. Unfortunately, the weather that night was not conducive to lawn seating. It drizzled steadily all afternoon and evening. A handful of diehards huddled under umbrellas on the lawn, but the pavilion was full.

During the show, Lightfoot thanked the crowd for coming out in such inclement weather and stated that the weather would not damper the quality of their show, and it didn’t.

The set list is as follows:

SWEET GUINEVERE
COTTON JENNY
SEA OF TRANQUILITY
NOW AND THEN
ALL THE LOVELY LADIES
NEVER TOO CLOSE
LET IT RIDE
SPANISH MOSS
SHADOWS
BEAUTIFUL
Band intro (Lightfoot prompted the band to stand and take a bow after Sundown and If You Could Read My Mind)
THE WATCHMAN’S GONE
THE WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD
CAREFREE HIGHWAY

Intermission

RIBBON OF DARKNESS
SUNDOWN
HANGDOG HOTEL ROOM
RESTLESS
WILD STRAWBERRIES
I’D RATHER PRESS ON
A PAINTER PASSING THROUGH
WAITING FOR YOU
IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND
BABY STEP BACK
EARLY MORNING RAIN
RAINY DAY PEOPLE (very appropriate encore)

Brian

Brian,

I got to see Gordon at Meadowbrook in July of '06. I grew up in Kalamazoo, and my husband, my mother, and I were visiting my brother and sister-in-law who lived in Rochester Hills at the time.

He opened the second set with Sit Down Young Stranger, the only time I have ever heard it live. The crowd roared at the "war is not the answer...young men should not die" line.

We had very similar weather, and the same encore

Even worse than the rain, though, was my brother's wife calling the show, which was excellent, the most boring show she had ever seen. And she kept saying it.

Hey Jennifer,

I was at the 2006 Meadowbrook show too. The weather that night was much worse – really heavy rain (you could hear it hitting the roof), high gusty winds, and the water just poured down the stairways. But the show went on.

So glad I wasn’t near your sister-in law.

Thank you for the set list. Even with the rain sounds like a great time. If Gord sings Now and Then and Spanish Moss at Jim Thorpe and/or Collingswood I will absolutely flip! Going to Jim Thorpe with Sister #1 and to Collingswood with Sister #2 who will be attending a GL concert for the first time so she in for quite a treat. The Scottish Rite Auditorium, Collingswood, is a really neat place and is only 20 minutes away. The area is eclectic with good restaurants. I am certainly looking forward to the Fall!
Very best,
CM
