Default Gordon in Ivins, Utah

What a great beginning to a new tour segment. The setting, the sound, the song choices, the band all excellent. And one other thing that made it a fabulous evening . . . the energy. Gordon's voice, personality and demeanor were in superb form, from his appreciation of the natural beauty of the venue, which was breathtaking, to his dedication of Beautiful for fun to a 31-year old birthday girl in the audience. His reference to Terry, as always, evokes the poignant loss, for them as well as for us; yet his resilience is evident and a marvel in how he has fashioned a cohesive band, an enhanced sound, and a stated respect for Carter while being true to the memory of Terry. Carter is singing now, maybe he was before but I never noticed, and it all flows, seemingly effortlessly, but I am sure the effort involved is significant. On to Las Vegas tonight. The Tuacahn Amphitheater is not to be missed if you ever get the opportunity to go there.

Yup, that's the place. Gorgeous. Especially when one factors in the clean air, cascading water flowing, and beautiful Christmas lights?? I think they have an upcoming Christmas production. And a unique gift shop. Gordon commented on how peaceful he found the region, that he has friends back in Toronto who travel to St. George to go "climbing". As you have shown, Sir, there is no shortage of awesome experiences, active or passive, to have with mountains out there. An audience member told me it had been in the 110's until recently, it was in the 40's that night outdoors, the locals came prepared, though, with hats, fleece, gloves, blankets for their legs, sort of an unprecedented, for me, anyway, manner of viewing the concert, but it was all good.

That ampitheater is absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to see Gord there. Temperatures in the 40s! I'd be bundled up too. Thanks for posting your reviews.
