Default Re: Pictures of GL concerts - over 40 years

I have so much wonderful Lightfoot material that generous fans have shared with me over the years that I often lose track of where they came from and who sent them. I believe the wonderful montage of the 2004 gathering prior to the "come back" performance at Hamilton Place, was courtesy of John Fowles. My apologies to those responsible if I am mistaken.
Perhaps some not attending might enjoy seeing the faces that did manage to make it to Hamilton that drab November night. Faces were not identified and as 2004 was the year I turned 50, I have reason to believe that is also the percentile of memory I still retain. I was privileged to meet so many fine Lightheads that evening but sadly can only associate a few faces and names.

Here are a few ID's from the photo you posted. Perhaps other can fill in the blanks on your photo and on the additional Hamilton Place 'Pub' photos in a second post below.
A fun night!

A few more photos from the Pub night prior to the Hamilton Place comeback performance.
I trust that these public photos are acceptable to post and that none of those attending are now on a wanted poster.

Don't know the source of this photo. A picture of Gordon with renowned Canadian environmentalist and conservationist David Suzuki. Gord mentions Suzuki in the 'No Hotel' preamble.

I was at the 2004 concert as well with the rest of the gang here. That concert was probably one of the most spine tingling ones I'd ever been too, because up until that point I had resigned myself to the fact that seeing GL in concert ever again was over!

When the lights dimmed, the place just went nuts when Gord strolled out to the stage and I was never happier to see him and the rest of the guys on stage.

I've said it before on here in the past I made it a point to attend the concert in benefit of Hamilton Health Sciences because a year prior they were the very same people who saved my dad's life from an abdominal aneurysm.

Thanks Gord H for sharing. I can never hear enough stories about that Hamilton concert. I gather that 'Hamilton Health Sciences' is one special place. Glad to hear about your Dad as well, very touching.

agreed, gordh - when gord started into spanish moss opener that was the most memorable moment for me for any concert attended - and most scariest then relieved moments were when i thought he was having stroke during IYCRMM

i watched all from 1st row of balcony, great perch for absorbing the love from the crowd

yuri, i did that sepia overkill montage - btw, harrison & i make our cameo at bottom

OK I can now fill in a few gaps.could the girl at left front be Bonnie (bjb). sorry I really cannot remember??
The "woman in the front on the left" is our very good friend and my hugging pal Diane (sundown 17)
Note for RM
I trust that you will appreciate that I used the thumbnail method. I very very nearly gave up because today my stoopid dial-up's catchphrase is "done" meaning it struggles for say twenty minutes to open a web page
from another web page then lyingly tells me it is "done"!!
And it probably took a further ten minutes to deign to open the original page first.I can't wait for broadband

Err Umm well spotted Omer, sorry everybody but in my haste to fight my dial up and get this posted I omitted to realise that a thin white line would not show up where it crossed another white haired gent's** head.I have now edited it to a red line and at great cost to my patience have attached the revised version

(**I do not know who that was,only that it was not BillW as he is at the other end of the table and is somewhat folically challenged no doubt as a result of his Marine's hairdresser!!
