Default Re: Gordon in Ithaca

I was there as well, and while I didn't have that much trouble hearing him, the lady in front of me did as did the gentleman beside me. Both were disappointed with his voice at first, expecting the Gord of yesteryear, but I think both of them grew to appreciate him as the evening went on. I thought the second set was stronger than the first
At this point in the tour, I half expected him to be far more tired, and congested. I thougth his voice was strong, getting stronger in the second half. I do agree though, it could have been a bit louder. I was halfway back on the floor, can't imagine what it was like in the back or balcony.
I thought the barbershop quartet improv was fun, he seemed to enjoy that memory.
