GORDON LIGHTFOOT
SPRING 2011 TOUR SCHEDULE

Lightfoot's work not only stands the test of time, it transcends it.

~ Globe & Mail

Canada’s Most Celebrated Singer-Songwriter
GORDON LIGHTFOOT
ANNOUNCES HIS CANADIAN TOURING
SCHEDULE FOR FALL 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Toronto, ON, Monday, February 28, 2011 – From love songs to depictions of Canadian history and wilderness, Gordon Lightfoot's music touches the listener on more levels and in more ways than most musicians could ever dream of. He is a national treasure, a cultural icon whose time-defying style and legendary hits have made him one of Canada’s most anticipated live performers. Now in this, his 5th decade of touring, Gordon Lightfoot announces that he will hit the road again this Fall for a series of Western Canadian and Ontario concerts dates. Lightfoot’s Fall 2011 Tour kicks off on November 20, 2011 in British Columbia with back-to-back concerts in Vancouver, Kamloops, Prince George and Dawson Creek; followed by Edmonton, Banff, Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta. The tour continues through the Prairies with stops in Saskatoon, Regina, and Winnipeg and then heads back to Ontario for concerts in Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury and ends on December 8-9th in Stratford. Please see Gordon Lightfoot’s Fall 2011 Tour schedule below for full details!

Gordon Lightfoot is also currently preparing for an Ontario Spring 2011 Tour. This tour gets underway on May 19th at the WFCU Centre in Windsor, and moves onto the Cornwall Civic Complex on May 20th, Brockville Memorial Civic Centre on May 21st, The SPC Centre in Napanee on May 22nd, and concludes with a 4-day residency at Toronto’s Massey Hall from Wednesday, May 25th through Saturday, May 28th, 2011.

Born November 17, 1938 in Orillia, Ontario Gordon Lightfoot studied at Los Angeles’ Westlake College of Music. He returned to Canada in the early 1960s and began performing at the “Riverboat” during Toronto's fabled folk scene. In 1966, his debut album Lightfoot! was released. Tracks such as For Lovin' Me, Early Mornin' Rain, Steel Rail Blues and Ribbon of Darkness brought him international recognition as a songwriter. Cover versions of his songs were recorded by artists such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, until 1971 when his own version of If You Could Read My Mind became a Top Ten hit. In 1974, his classic single, Sundown, went to No.1 on the American charts, followed two years later by The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, inspired by a Newsweek magazine article; it reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard charts. By the 1990s he was mostly touring, giving just fifty concerts a year by 1998, mainly in North America, while he released two albums in the period. In 2004, he released his 20th album Harmony, and appeared as a featured guest on Canadian Idol.

Mr. Lightfoot has won 15 Juno Awards and been nominated for 5 Grammy Awards. He was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Canadian Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2001. In May 2003 was made a Companion of the Order of Canada and is also a member of the Order of Ontario, and in 2004 was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

A full tour schedule follows.

Just been looking at Wayne Francis' website ref Massey Hall concerts this month, above are the ticket prices.

In the booklet that comes with the Bear Family Records CD Sunday Concert Plus, it states:

It was the end of March 1969................... Gordon Lightfoot was holding a three day series of concerts at Massey Hall in Toronto on 29th, 30th and 31st. Tickets were $3.00, $4.00 and $5.00, and every night was sold out.

How times change. But I am sure every night will still sell out.

LOL - that's called INFLATION and why I tell my kids to save their brains out for the future. Of course I'm old enough to remember full size nickel candy bars (penny candy, too), Campbell's tomato soup at 8 cents a can, 4-cent 1st class stamps and a small loaf of bread for a quarter.

You know you are getting old when you can remember all those old prices, my father bought his first house in the late 50's for 400, when I bought my first good guitar he could have bought 2 houses and put a LARGE deposit on a third. For my Lightfoot D18, Buckingham Palace.

Yes, indeedy, I'm getting up there, actually old enough this summer to tap my retirement account if I choose to do so. Let's just say Harry Truman was President when I was born - but I don't remember him, lol. The reason I remember the 8 cent price of Campbell's soup is because a kindly neighbor sent me on an errand to the neighborhood store for a can and gave me a dime - and told me I could keep the two cents change for myself! Woo hoo! Charleston Chews, Bazooka gum, Necco Wafers, Saf T Pops, Teaberry gum, Satellite Wafers, Bit-O-Honey, Atomic Fireballs, caramel creams, Mary Janes, black taffy, Tootsie Rolls, Dad's rootbeer barrels, candy buttons and candy necklaces, Junior Mints, Sugar Babies (and Sugar Daddy - way to lose the fillings in your mouth), Zagnut, Good & Plenty, bubble gum cigarettes, Hot Tamales, Lemonheads, Peanut Butter Bar, wax lips and mustaches, licorice whips and buttons, El Bubble Gum Cigars, Boston Baked Beans, and Bonomo Turkish Taffy, among others.
