Hello! I'm new to posting here but as John said, I've been here silently for a while! I've been a devoted Lightfoot fan for over 30 years! We had the privelege of attending the Omaha concert last Friday evening and as always the time goes by much too quickly! The concert hall seated 2,000 people and it was sold out. The acoustics were beautiful! We were in the 3rd row so had excellent seats! Gord's voice did start out a bit quiet but gained strength as the evening went on. At times, the audience seemed torn between exuberance and reverence as they listened to Gordon's familiar tunes and lyrics. One of the highlights was Gordon singing the Canadian Railroad Trilogy!

Another highlight for me was getting to meet Gord and the band afterwards! We waited for about an hour after the show and although he must have been tired, he kindly greeted each of us that were waiting!
