San Diego, Ca 1973, he was promoting his upcoming Album, Sundown of course.
First song was High and Dry, and he was rocking his head back and forth on the intro and breaks. I remember it well...
I think it was the Civic Theater, but could have been Golden Hall.
I still have the autographed ticket somewhere.

thanks James - I was searching for that! I remembered John wanting the dates... I wonder if he has more since that posting..

Checking John Fowles listings I see he has Gord in Montreal 2x in 6 months in 1968 at Place Des Arts.
May 10/68 and Oct.7/68 AND then again Apr.5/69..
3 times in 11 months???

no problem, bits getting harder to zero in on the keywords though, eh… when i remembered it was John, it helped filter the responses a lot

Brian, you mean the "nod" stuff like here at 2:50 onwards? what a memorable keepsake

No JJ. Head tilted back and side to side. Don't think I ever saw him do it again.

May 15, 1972, Gordon was in Portland, Oregon. I had front-row tickets, but was also 8 1/2 months pregnant. My doctor told me I couldn't make the 160 mile round trip to the concert, so I had to send friends, instead. He was back again the next year, and did two shows (Same night), but I don't remember the exact date.
