After more than 50 active years of hit song making and international album sales well
into the multi-millions, it’s safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician
Gordon Lightfoot resides with some very exclusive company atop the list of all-time
greats. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such immortals as “Early
Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,”
“(That’s What You Get) For Lovin Me,” “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald,”
“Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” “Ribbon Of Darkness,” “Beautiful,” “Song For A
Winter’s Night” and “Rainy Day People” to name a few.
Celebrating his 80th birthday, this year is special for the legendary artist, who has
announced plans for a cross-country USA tour entitled “GORDON LIGHTFOOT:
80 YEARS STRONG TOUR”. The tour will feature his well known hits as well as
some deep album cuts for the die-hard fanatics. All of which are woven together with
some of Lightfoot’s own behind the scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his
historic 50-plus-years musical career and his 80 years of life. The event is sure to be a
great thrill for live audiences and anyone who enjoys hearing great music and seeing a
living legend in person.
