I had forgotten about that! During the Whitewater show, Gordon told the story about the Harris, MI cancellation. The performances were apparently in an outdoor tent. Gordon said while they were struggling to figure out how to pull off a performance with his issues regarding his right hand, they found out "the tent broke". Then he smiled and said "so we got paid anyway", and everyone laughed.
