re: need help with "double sided show".?

Two full sets with intermission..
or one longer set (resulting in a shorter show overall)
(I've heard Gord refer to them as "sides"..
instead of "sets"..
He'll say for example..
that he'd decided on a given night
to have The Wreck "open the second side"..
etc...
I always thought that was really cool..
but then The Gord..
is like, well, really cool..
let's face it..
etc.)..

RJ,

I think I get it. They do have another band for dancing and then the club gets rowdy. I am very short, even shorter than Brink and get lost when I can't see. Guess I will have to stay close to Gordon.

I don't think there was an intermission, but I'm not at all sure anymore. That concert was in Feb and I usually don't even remember what happened yesterday.
But that wont mean that he will do it the same way next year...

One 'side' or 'two' - doesn't matter. There will be three concerts in three days - I'm delighted....:-)

Kerstin is correct. Some of the time they change the plan when they get there. An intermission is either added or taken away.

I'm so jealous, but amused, by this conversation! Can't say's I've figured out yet who'se going to the California concert(s) and who's going to the Florida concert(s).

I just realized I cannot go to the 3/29 concert in Minnesota as I'll be in Chicago that weekend. So...I'm holding out for other concerts to be announced within my vicinity (or at least within 300 miles or so).

Fun fun fun!! Life is so good!

Hi Gitchigumee,

Just so you can keep straight what DSR is doing, I plan to go to them all. We have tickets for the NASCAR race in Daytona Beach and then plan to go to all the concerts in Florida. Lucky for us, we have friends to stay with.

I am sorry you can not go to the Minnesota concert. But hopefully there will be more concerts posted soon and some will be within the 300 mile limit.

Yes, life is good and fun. Maybe we will meet sometime this year.

DSR

Sounds like fun - all these CA and FL tours! I'd love to go but am unable to plan that far in advance right now, so very unlikely I'll be among all the lucky folk! But as always - it will be nice to read all about it here.

DSR,

You have definitely got your priorities straight! I want to be just like you when I grow up! Maybe our paths will cross during Gordquest '08.

GG,

Thank you for such a nice compliment. I am so happy I have finally learned how to really live and enjoy life. My wonderful husband is concerned about having money to live on after the next 7/8 years. We both work hard and don't plan to leave money for the kids when we are gone from this earth. I want no regreats if I can help it. I don't think I will starve in later life and if I do at least I will have a smile on my face. Seeing Gordon and traveling with my "sisters" makes me feel young and also helps me to be a calmer and happier person. Life is short and so am I.

I have meet a wonderful group of friends here that I actually see on a regular basis. Tomorrow I will get to see Borderstone for the 3rd month in a row. He also is a very special person. My husband and I really enjoy spending time with him.

Anyway, please keep in touch and we "will" make GordQuest 2008 a time to meet. Sorry this is so long but I can't help myself.

Keep on keeping on.

DSR

I'll be going to all the California and Florida concerts (along with my sister, Dream Street Rose). I'm hoping Kerstin can make it to Florida for at least two. I hope Claudia is able to come out for the California concerts. And I would love it if Pam (Podunklander) could make it out here too. I'm looking forward to meeting Char in Florida, and hopefully many more Corfidians.

I've completed a prototype "GordQuest 2008" patch, which can either be ironed onto a garment or attached to a ribbon/cord and worn around the neck. I'll post a picture of it as soon as I'm able to get Ken's (DSR's hubby) help, when I go down to visit them next week .

WOW Kathy!!!! That should be tons of fun!!! Save some energy (and $$$) though in the event that Gord'll be in the Northeast! You know I would love to go to CA (FL too!) and time will tell but it doesn't look good for me as of now.

Can't wait to see the patch!!! It'll probably go well with my GL pasties (aka stamps) just kiddin'!

Pam

Hi Podunklander,

Thanks for the laugh re: the pasties.

The California girls are a lot of fun. We even have a chauffer (Ken) to take us where ever we want to go. If you think there is any chance for you to travel with us PM me. I am pretty good at figuring things out.

Somebody probably the Wallace feller recently advised keeping an eye on 3 sites
  1. Waynes
  2. Ticket b....ds
    AND
  3. Pollstar
to get the earliest possible concert date news and sure enough a useful google alert within the last hour brought me news of three more concerts in advance of their revelation on Wayne's site

"
Gordon Lightfoot's touring plans now include Chattanooga, Atlanta and Birmingham for February"
a quick interrogation of the pollstar site revealed that these three are all in the week before the Florida swing
being on February 13.15 and 16 resprectively
