The last concert SHOULD be in Europe,
Where he hasn't been for 19 years...LoL

(His largest fan base outside of North America. Where he seems to tour every day of the week...every year!...LoL).

Dear Frank, You sound like a poor sport, just because we have seen him a number of times this year. Of course his last concert should be at Massey Hall. I certainly hope that is not for atleast 35 years.

Betty,
Of course it should be Massey Hall.
I was joking...(I think)?LOL.
How about if his third to last perfomance was in England. Now I've probably upset the rest of his European fans!
(This was always a tricky topic)!

By the way, his second to last perfomance would be "somewhere USA".

But wait a minute.WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE WORLD.

LOL.Frank.

Frank, Do you have the address to send Gord a "fan" letter asking him if he would like to make a trip and play at Albert Hall? HOw big is Albert Hall? I might make the trip.
Betty
P.S. I think his last USA concert should be at the Majestic Theater, we had such a great time there.

Hi Betty,
Gord played the Royal Albert Hall several
times in the 70s/80s and it is VERY BIG!
Those concerts were fantastic and if we
ever manage to get him back here, you
have to come!

Thanks Char.
Betty, If Gord Came to England,the likely venue, would be Wembley arena.(quite big).
The Albert Hall doesn't host concerts of that nature anymore.
He last played the Albert hall in the 70's.

Frank,
I really don't want it any place really big. It should be small and intimate, just for his true family. You, CJ, Char, Silver Heels, Florian, and other true fans that post on this sight. But, why talk about last concert, I want to leave this earth before he does. I better go to work Isound rather sad this morning. Have a good day.

Frank - do you think Gord could fill Wembley Stadium? - 90,000 people? He wouldn't do a place that big! He likes the smaller places. Royal Albert Hall is even bigger than Massey by about 2,000! He'd much prefer to do a few nights there I think. It would be a great place to see him. He was there on May 18, 1981 and I guess that was the last time.
Wayne Francis has a very comprehensive list of all of Gord's concerts and a lot of set lists for them too. There's a link on Florian's home page. It's interesting to see the changes in the sets he has done over the years and the songs that have remained in every concert.
But he'll still be at home in Toronto standing on the stage he owns - Massey Hall!
LOL

Char,
That's not the one. Wembley stadium is an outdoor, soccer arena.The national stadium.(currently being rebuilt).It's been used for concerts before.ie Live aid.
Wembley arena is a much smaller, indoor arena.
Most big artists play there,(Dylan this month)when they can only fit in the odd date. The problem with small venues, is that they cannot support public demand, for only one show. If he came here for a series of dates,rather than a one off, that would be okay.
For a one off,like Dylan.W.E.would be perfect.

Frank.
(He might have problems filling the old wembley stadium...LoL.)
