Default false advertising or just effective promo?

either way, I would think 90+ % of ticket buying fans would enjoy the evening immensely but it seems so deceiving to intentionally and quite precisely synch up his 70's vocal recordings with his more recent teaser video clips


I would suppose more than a few first time and/or long time absent attendees would be just a little startled if Gord were to break into Carefree Highway for openers, after having been stoked by the polished ad...I now forget what my point was

Lol...I voted for all of the above, too.

I don't know...I think most of the people just 'know' that voice and expect it to sound like that. I don't believe most true fans are upset when the vocals don't sound like the promo or like his voice did in the 70's.

I wasn't. I was thrilled to be in the same space and listen to him sing. He is one of the most brilliant songwriter/musicians of our time....nothing about him has ever disappointed me in any way.

Ma'am,

That's not funny. However, I did cast MY vote for #3. It just seems right.

I think I'll reserve judgement on it.
