Default May 21 - Elkhart, IN show

7:30 p.m. sharp "playin' in tune on time' Gord came out in his red jacket. After applause died down, Gordon said to the crowd, "I know you're out there." (probably couldn't see because of the bright stage lighting)

1. Now and Then
2. Waiting For You
3. The Watchman's Gone
4. Don Quixote
5. Minstrel Of The Dawn
6. Never Too Close
Band introductions : Gordon introduced Barry Keane as "laying down a beat that keeps me honest!"
7. Shadows
8. Beautiful
9. Make Way For The Lady
10. Gord exchanged guitars at this point and said, "You'll have to pardon me. I'm not moving as fast as I once did!" (got a chuckle) At this point I yelled up "We still love ya, Gord!" Carefree Highway
11. Did She Mention My Name
12. Ribbon Of Darkness
13. Sundown
8:20 p.m. - intermission
Gordon came out in his blue jacket for the second half.
14. Sweet Guinnevere
15. Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald
16. Christian Island
17. All The Lovely Ladies
18. Let It Ride
19. I'd Rather Press On
20. Rainy Day People
21. A Painter Passing Through
22. If You Could Read My Mind (standing ovation afterwards - deservedly so - I swear Gordon saves his voice for this one!!!)
23. Restless
24. Baby Step Back
25. Early Morning Rain


26. Cold On The Shoulder

Concert over 9:30 p.m.

Gordon joked about it, but he was moving noticeably slower than I have seen him ever. This was show #21 for my wife and I. Met Gordon 19 of those times. When we told Rick Haynes that he replied, "God Bless You!"

Got autographs from Gordon, Rick and Barry on our 'Songbook' book. I'll try to post some pics.

If you have not seen Gordon in concert ever, or even in a long time, you better get there. None of us are getting any younger!!!!

My wife and I are going to get tickets for the Joliet show in July.

Can't wait for the new biography coming out in September. I noticed it is the same author who did the notes for the 'Songbook' book.

I've never been disappointed with IYCRMM.. always his "A" game and a standing "O" after...and perhaps a few tears..
I noticed last year he was a tad slower getting around.. a bit more hesitant perhaps due to his vertigo/inner ear problems..
but he gets 'er done!
Go Good Go!
thanks for the post and set list!
The Jennings book will be well received..he's a well respected music historian and writer and a very nice guy to boot!

I had forgotten that Gordon had the vertigo/inner ear problems. I do also remember him leaning forward for a few seconds and remaining totally still and silent.

Must be a symptom relief technique for it. I'm surprised that he doesn't use a barstool when he performs.

He is ever the trooper!!!!!
