Default Ticket Stubs

I came across just a few of my Lightfoot ticket stubs that Id collected over the last quarter century and had an idea.
Im sure that most Corfidians are no less crazy than myself and keep their stubs as a souvenir. Thought it might be fun to post a few of these and see the variety of tickets out there. Who can post the oldest ticket, the most expensive ticket, the most venues. How many locations (states, provinces, countries) can we come up with. The year with the greatest number of attendees/stubs. How many can we post for the current tour - etc. Perhaps those posting their stubs might also share a story or memory around that performance.
Just a diversion while waiting for summer to roll around.

gee Yuri, it would be nice to get by with 9.00 for a ticket again. I have never kept my stubs. I don't know why, just never have. But this will be interesting to see the prices, locations, and dates.

re: Sept.7/2002-Orillia Opera House. The Concert that Never Was..

Oh really.. were you there?.. If so I suppose you've posted a description of it somewhere.. not to bring back bad memories.. but I'd be interested to hear from someone who was there, what the experience was from the ticket holder's perspective etc.. Those who showed up for the gig etc.. What were the rumors? What was the news, the feeling around the Opera House etc..
'just curious..

I was there, and Char didn't even know me.....

We were assembled at the doors, it seemed to be late and we were wondering why the doors weren't opened. Then somebody came out and said the concert was cancelled as Mr. Lightfoot was ill or not well. Just some mumblings in the crowd, nobody thought too much about it I don't think. I went back to the hotel, and the next morning there were films of Gord being taken from the Flight For Life into the Hamilton Hospital. Someone was bagging him so I knew that it was serious or he would not have been intubated. He was unconscious of course. Rick made a statement later that day, and then I flew back to Colorado and didn't hear anything more. I finally found corfid again - I was not a member at that time, just a lurker and a rare one so it was difficult to find the site again. It was a worrisome time, that is for sure.

Interesting topic, Yuri.

I scrounged around and found some interesting items. I haven't tried adding attachments here; hopefully this will work. How times have changed. The oldest one is from my first Massey concert - $7.50 for a fifth row seat! Also included is a comparable ticket from the most recent Massey series - $65.00, 29 years later. The stubs from the 70's are the old style that were produced by a printing company and delivered to the venue. The most recent one is an e-ticket, printed at home, with a bar code scanned upon entrance.
