Default INJURY and CONCERT postponement news

UPDATE on GORDON and his injury: https://sunonlinemedia.ca/2019/07/22...aJo_DBnO5BnBAs Gordon Lightfoot Recovering From Injury
July 22, 2019 Sunonline/Orillia Gordon Lightfoot, Mariposa Folk
By John Swartz
Gordon Lightfoot has cancelled a number of concerts on his July, 12-date, itinerary because of a painful leg injury. Anne Leibold, who manages Lightfoot’s office, Early Morning Productions, told SUNonline/Orillia he tripped over a bench.
“He’s going to make a quick recovery and be ready for the next dates. He’s got nothing broken, but (its) just very painful,” Leibold said.
Lightfoot is resting at home and expects to be ready to resume his concert schedule with a 10 day American Midwest tour n September.
“It’s a matter of weeks, not months,” she said, before Lightfoot is on his feet again.
Shows in Chattanooga, Atlanta, Getttysburg, Martha’s Vineyard and Annapolis (Md.) were among those cancelled. Leibold said they are working to reschedule the cancelled concerts.
“We will make up all of the dates.”
Lightfoot made one of his surprise visits to the Mariposa Folk Festival in early July, singing only If You Could Read My Mind to the overwhelming approval of the audience. While he did sit to perform, it was merely because he forgot to bring a guitar strap and not related to his injury.

Thanks for posting this. I think the news could be much worse. I also think the decision to postpone the July leg of the tour is wise - very ambitious - 11 shows in 14 days, with lots of travel between sites.
That means August is free. The Sept leg is also a bit ambitious - 9 shows in 11 days, although the venues seem to be a bit closer.
Very much hoping to be at the Royal Oak concert on Sept 25.
We'll see.

So relieved that it's not more serious than this. The rest will allow him to make a full recovery. I know how disappointed Gord must be - he hates having to postpone shows. I'm disappointed too - was going to see him in Chattanooga and Atlanta. But his health and mobility are more important. Rest up, Gord, and we'll see you later.

Sounding more encouraging all the time. Looks like the Richmond show has already been rescheduled.

Well, Gord has always been a rather upstanding performer. I WANT Gord to be outstanding, and not some stool pigeon.
