Do they merch at his concerts? Shirts CDs ect
 
It's my first time seeing Gordon

No, they sure don't. Gordon doesn't believe in ripping the public off so he has never allowed it.

apparently they had t-shirts and cd's for sale in Florida. T-shirts were black or white with LIGHTFOOT across the chest in SCRIPT font. $30.00.

Wow, that is a surprise. It is hard to imagine him doing it after all these years. Barry had me pester him about it once in a while, I didn't press it much though, and of course it never worked.

Maybe the manager got him to do it. Anyone know who the manager is on this tour?

If he didn't want to do it then it wouldn't matter who wanted him to do it.. He was up for some stuff a few years ago, agreed to it one day then overnight changed his mind. NO merch sales back then...

I know no one could make him do it, but I wonder who might have helped change his mind. When he was here in CT. last year and a couple years before, there were no merchandise sales. I am still curious of who is the road manager on this tour, but I'll just ask someone who knows for sure.

I've never seen merchandise @ any of his concerts (and that goes all the way back to 1977). One year I did see a fan wearing a t-shirt that had the cover of Summertime Dream on it, but I'm guessing that he had that made on his own. When we attend a concert, we try to wear something reminiscent of Canada (my latest t-shirt has a pic of the CN tower & is bilingual - The CN Tower/La Lour CN). My husband's t-shirt has a Canadian flag & says, "Canada, eh?"

Warren is his current manager, and he was very kind to us last summer (Aston, PA)

2015 tour dates/venues have had and will have T-shirts and CD's..

Thanks paskatefan, I asked, and was told Warren is the current road manager and will be all this year and likely longer. They won't be in my area this year, so I will likely see them all next year.
