My wife and I have two seats in 3rd row, center !!!

Am looking forward to it.

We will be wearing our matching, custom-made 'Gordon Lightfoot' concert shirts ( we're such nerds, but we enjoy every minute of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )

Got our after - show passes as well.

It will be strange not seeing Terry on Gord's left.

Kelly, I'd like to see your custom-made Gord concert tees...maybe you could post a pic or just describe them. I've been thinking for a while now about getting one made for myself...was hinting around in August for my birthday, but no luck

Have fun at the show!

Three of us are driving up from St. Louis. We have seats in row A, which I THINK is actually the fourth row. A little to the left, seats 24, 25 and 26. I'm a gray/blond middle-aged guy with glasses. Might have my black Ed Fitz t-shirt on.

Is anyone gonna do the setlist...so I don't have to?
Anyway, really looking forward to the show!

Steve

I know Kelly has the set list. I tried but I forget and then I'm two songs behind...not good. But the concert was great. I was so close I could have reached out and touched him (well maybe not). I took a couple of pictures as it was winding down. I know they say not too so I didn't until I saw everyone else getting out their cameras so I did too.

way to go Gloria - that's when I snap a few too if the camera police are too vigilant.. In Salamanca it didn't matter if we took pics tho...

post 'em if you've got 'em!

I was doing the set-list til intermission, then I met and spoke with Kelly and his wife. He appeared to be much better organized than I. I have a tiny notebook and usually end up scribbling one song over another in the dark; then if I can make out the names, I have to decide which one came first. He said he would post the list here unless someone beat him to it. That has happened to me before too.

Very nice meeting and speaking to the Davis's. Cool custom made concert T-shirts too!

Last night's show was the first one I have attended where an audience member finished "Ribbon of Darkness" when Gord just lets the ending hang. It was on key, in time and sounded great. The crowd applauded and laughed, Gord looked up and grinned, gave a thumbs up....and then said "Like they say in Mexico, YOU sir are a wiener!"

Can't remember the last time I heard Christian Island done, the 70s, if ever.

Gord said he hadn't been to Springfield for 25 years. Asked how to pronounce Sangamon...got a lot of help from the audience.

Opened with the red smoking jacket, wore the black vest after the break.

I was thrilled he did If Children Had Wings. A big favorite of mine and since he's put it back in the rotation (and slightly changed the lyrics) I have only heard it one or two other times.

Gord was in a good mood and sounded great on most of the tunes. A bit out of breath on just a couple. Introduced the band twice, both halves. Before introducing Carter Lancaster the first time, made a mention of Terry's passing. The Straw Boss looked and sounded great with that new black bass and that big white ponytail.

First show in these later years (other than casino with no break) where I heard The Wreck open the second set instead of end the first.

All I can think of for now. A great show and a great time had by all.

Wow, Gloria, you were REALLY up close. My family and I were in the 8th row in the main orchestra section -- didn't have the connections to score seats down in the pit! LOL

Great thoughts on the show, thanks for posting. Glad you had a great time, I hope I get the good fortune of meeting you at a future Lightfoot swing through these parts.

When the tickets went on sale I had my hand on the mouse and went "click" at 10:00 a.m. sharp! Still didn't get front row but I was way satisfied. There were some empty seats over closer to the middle and Kelly suggested we grab them but I was too lazy to move! He was just great, wasn't he??
