Hi Char! How's your holidays going?

Happy holidays to the rest here as well.

That's a nicely animated & very artistic picture.

Are those for sale anywhere??

Nice - they've got to sell those - everyone wants and needs at least one.

I agree, I would love to have a signed one to go along with my others.

All of us would love one, Many people aren't able to get to met Gord and the band after a show to have them sign something. Here is a real crazy thought, how about making a free presigned poster part of the ticket package. The costs would be minimal for the tour and the fans gratitude would be forever.



To Char and all my fellow friends and posters on this site

Thanks for all the great work and insites that you have provided.

May everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season.

Thanks and God Bless

Kevin

thanks Kevin,
I will look into who has produced the poster. It could be a one-off from a venue - not sure but I will see what I can find out.

Merry Christmas. Hug your loved ones extra tight this year...

oh, i thought it was just an internet someone having fun playing with fonts/imagery, but it's at the official site so may be valid...well, my 2 cents: when i see that type of imagery, I don't think of Gordon Lightfoot

Premise is ok, but I think that with a few tweaks it could be somewhat improved. Add pic of Gord and the band. room for some autographs.

Anybody know who's posting Gord's tweets? See https://twitter.com/Lightfoot365

I assume it's somebody in the office; cannot see himself on Twitter (though maybe Meredith has talked him into it, lol.)

I'm not sure but it could be Wayne @ lightfoot.ca. He has it noted there...http://www.lightfoot.ca/
There are other TWITTERS out there with GORDON LIGHTFOOT's name attached but are not "official"..

The Carefree Highway posters are not being made to sell for the 2013 tour.

i think that promo video is pretty misleading to newer fans or those who have been out of touch for decades, in having video of current day Gord, lip synched to his vocal tones of 30+ years ago...they are in for a bit of a jolt

yeah, a bit surprised that Gord and/or his people endorse such nonsense

said with respect, of course
