Wow!! 14 dates already!

To semi-quote the Dave Loggins song: "Please come to Phoenix in the springtime"! (Or at least summer.)

I don't know when the last time Gord has appeared in St. Louis, MO. It is the 18th largest metropolitian area in the U.S. but he hasn't been in St. Louis in many years. I think, in terms of population, it may be the most overlooked area in Gord's touring. Here's hoping.........

Oh-h-h-h-h-h!!!!! He's coming to Onamia, MN. That sounds really good!!!
Thanks for the update!!!

(P.S. - I haven't been lurking.....I was hacked, hijacked whatever one would call it. I think that things are almost back to normal, except my "favorite places" does't work.
Maybe I have to do them all over again????? At least it's working.

Thanks Peter. I should do that. I did plant the idea in Barry Harvey's mind when I spoke to him at Aurora last September. I would also guess that there is a concert promotion network where promoters in different cities express interest in certain performers. Maybe through radio stations as well -- I don't know. I know Gord would have to already be in the general region in the U.S. to make it feasible. He was within a few hundered miles last year, so that might have been a better opportunity than this year. On the other hand, he seems to frequent Aurora, Illinois annually, so maybe St. Louis would be within the realm of feasibiltiy in 2008.

Does anybody out there have a recommendation to get Gord's Business Office (is it EMP?) to consider a stop at St. Louis?

yes yes yes Tim
approach Mr Harvey by all means
Gord's managemrent comnpany is certainly EMP and their address has been posted here umpteen times and also appears somewhere on Waynes site
I could not find it but found that on his main "Tour" page he says
"If you have serious interest in securing a concert booking for Mr. Lightfoot, please contact his agent -
Stephan Boyd at ICON Performing Arts at the link below."

[img]http://www.lightfoot.ca/lightfoo.gif[/img]
which is a link to
http://www.iconperformingarts.com/content/view/33/148/
which is a page devoted to Gord with contact links:-
LOS ANGELES
1557 Westwood Boulevard, Suite 242
Los Angeles, CA 90024
Tel (310) 734-6130
Fax (310) 861-8087
NEW YORK
1650 Broadway, Suite 1105
New York, NY 10019
Tel (646) 415-9139
Fax (646) 607-9066
NASHVILLE
5543 Edmondson Pike, Suite 147
Nashville, TN 37211
Tel (615) 469-0997
Fax (615) 332-8371
But quite where Mr Boyd is is by no means clear
Hoever there is a staff directory which provides this:-
Stephan Boyd stephan@iconperformingarts.com
with a"new submissions" link at:-
http://www.iconperformingarts.com/content/view/63/168/
also on that site I found
a link to the great high resolution picture at:-
http://www.iconperformingarts.com/images/stories/highresphotos/gordonlightfootcolor.jpg
and a video link that I think opens the linus site's Inspiration Lady video
plus a link to more hi res pictures again those seem to be on the Linus site
As I said I thought I had seen EMP's address on Waynes site so I googled for "Early Morning Productions lightfoot.ca"
nothing turned up, but it was far from a wasted search because
one result read as follows
In harmony: Gordon Lightfoot looks back Sing Out! The Folk Song ...
MANAGEMENT / BOOKING: Early Morning Productions, 1365 Yonge St. Suite #207. Toronto, ON M4T 2P7, Canada: E-mail: rookie@lightfoot.ca.
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...n16519941/pg_1
through 4 (Pages 5 and 6 have nothing to add)
I found a nice 4 page review from 2006 that I had not read before

I rather liked this quote
"Indeed, Lightfoot fronts the band like a maestro wielding a guitar instead of a wand, and with just as much precision"

Hope he comes back through Virginia! No Wolftrap show last year. Knoxville and Ashville would normally be OK, but we'll have a one month old baby at the time.

Kerstin,

I am going if life doesn't happen instead. I think, life is what happens while you are making your plans. Want to come? I promise you it will be our best yet.

I have been to Wolf Trap and it is a wonderful venue. Great job with the pictures Jesse Joe. Kerstin, should I get you an airline ticket?

Cool! Wolftrap. Let's hope it's cooler than the sweltering August date last time.

Hi Bill,

I was at Wolf Trap in June of 2006 and sweltering is a perfect word for the way we were feeling. Maybe they will have a cooler June next year. Here's positive thoughts in that direction. Hope to see you there.

Hi Claudia,
you're welcome. You can use me as an excuse anytime. There is no way I'll be able to make it to Wolf Trap either, not if I want to keep my husband anyway.

Hey Dream Street Rose,

Do you want to be my friend ?... I think your going to break your record of 12 GL concerts in one year. Really happy for you. Bill W told me somewhat about The Wolftrap last summer. It seems like a super venue. Kerstin and the others that know you, are really lucky to have a great person like you for a friend. Have fun & enjoy Lightfoot concerts all you can.
