Gordon Lightfoot: The Canadian folk legend is performing again after recovering from a serious illness. Anyone who doesn't feel a tingle go up their spine to the opening words of "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" should probably check their passport for country of origin. Lightfoot was in fine form during a recent string of sold-out shows at Massey Hall.

Ways to enjoy LIVE 8 at home:
Number 4 of list:
Wave a Canadian Flag when Gordon Lightfoot hits the stage.

Funny,you think he'd be the first artist mentioned. I guess times in Canada (like anywhere)march on and move on.

Does anyone know what time approximately, Gord is performing on July 2?

Sure I'd like to hear some of the other acts but knowing when it wil be Gord's turn may save about 8 hours of viewing.
Thanks!

Here's a general schedule of all the Live 8 concerts from the Toronto Globe & Mail.

Friday, July 1, 2005 Page R26

Here, a blow-by-blow of the coverage planned for broadcast on CTV tomorrow.

7 a.m. Concert footage beams in from around the world, chiefly at this hour from Johannesburg. Cut to the crews setting up for Live 8 Canada at Park Place in Barrie, Ont.

8 a.m. Tokyo concert ends. Berlin show kicks off; performers in this city include Audioslave, Green Day, Chris de Burgh, Brian Wilson, A-Ha, Roxy Music and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

8:30 a.m. London concert starts with Paul McCartney and U2 singing Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Other London performers include Elton John, Pink Floyd, Robbie Williams, Madonna, Sting, Annie Lennox, REM, Coldplay, Dido, Mariah Carey, Joss Stone, Scissor Sisters, Keane, Snoop Dog, Travis and The Who.

9 a.m. Gates open at Park Place for Live 8 Canada.

9:30 a.m.Rome concert begins. Performers here include Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Zucchero.

Noon. From Philadelphia, actor Will Smith leads a global "click moment" -- concertgoers snap their fingers every three seconds to represent the time it takes for another child to die from poverty.

Philadelphia's concert begins; performers here include Destiny's Child, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Wonder, Will Smith, Def Leppard and P. Diddy.

B'Stone, if you take a look, there's no diss to GL. The acts were listed alphabetically (although, curiously enough, by first name).

Excerpt from post-Live8 Globe and Mail article:

"...Following Deep Purple and the African Guitar Summit, Blue Rodeo drifted into jam-band spaciness, showing yet again how ideally suited they are to an outdoor summer stage. Later, when Gordon Lightfoot walked on stage, the audience was as quiet and deferential as a crowd of 35,000 could be. (By day's end, Cohl reportedly said attendance was closer to 40,000.)

"I was providing an interlude between the people who were rocking the place out," Lightfoot said smiling backstage. "Believe me, I got here when Deep Purple got on and were rocking, and also Blue Rodeo. I knew that I would be playing a quiet set.'"

Did the CTV broadcast or any other Canadian TV channel show the entire Gordon Lightfoot gig ? If yes, I hope somebody was smart enough to record this, as there is no guarantee, that any of the later official releases will include the whole set.
Just watched the AOL webcast in dial-up quality.
everything is now directly accesable, sorted by artist and songs.

I was very impressed with Gordon's performance, even in this very reduced image and sound quality.
