Gordon Lightfoot tickets - Gordon Lightfoot tour dates

Gordon Lightfoot Tour Schedule

The legendary Gordon Lightfoot has influenced countless musicians who have come to play folk music since he first started making music way back in 1958. He has been credited as being one of the primary artists responsible for the rise of folk music in the Sixties and Seventies and has received international acclaim as one of the greatest folk musicians of all time. Even at 75 years old, Gordon Lightfoot is still going strong. He continues to tour and record and stands as a surviving icon of folk rock. There is simply no excuse to pass up the opportunity to see one of the most important figures in Twentieth Century music as he heads out on tour across North America!

Gordon Lightfoot begins his tour on Friday, April 25th at St. John's Arts and Cultural Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland where he will also be playing the following night. During the rest of April he will be playing two more shows in Eastern Canada, the first at the Pepsi Centre in Corner Brook, New Foundland, and the second at Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Gordon Lightfoot will continue his Canadian tour in May with stops in Summerside, Moncton, St. John, Fredericton, Hamilton, Peterborough, and Kingston before wrapping it up on the 10th with a show in London, Ontario. In June Gordon Lightfoot begins the US portion of his tour with stops in East Lansing, Rochester, Normal, Cincinnati, and Greensburg. The US tour continues in July and takes Lightfoot to Burlington, Northampton, Portland, Englewood, Newton, and Aston. On September 26th Gordon Lightfoot will hit the stage at Humphrey's by the Bay in San Diego, California which will be the final US show for Lightfoot in 2014. On October 25th Gordon Lightfoot has an exciting date lined up at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia. Lightfoot embarks on another Canadian tour in November which will have him performing in Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Cornwall, Ottawa, and finishing up with a four night stand at the legendary Massey Hall in Toronto, Ontario from the 26th through the 29th.


About the Artist

Gordon Lightfootwas born in Orillia ion Ontario, Canada and at a young age began teaching himself to play guitar and sing. In 1958 Gordon Lightfoot moved to California where he was influenced by the likes of Pete Seeger, The Weavers and Bob Gibson. He began studying music at Westlake College of Music and supported himself by writing commercial jingles but returned to Toronto in 1960. Before long he was playing in Toronto coffee shops and earned a reputation for spreading folk music. In 1965 Lightfoot signed with Universal Records and appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson as well as at the Newport Folk Festival. He developed a huge worldwide reputation as an expert songwriter and had his works recorded by some of the biggest stars of the day. It was not until the Seventies that he started gaining an equal reputation as a singer. He has released twenty one albums to date including his debut Lightfoot!, and his most recent, 2012′s All Live.


Breakthrough

After returning from Europe in 1964, Lightfoot became much more involved in the Canadian folk scene and made an appearance at the Mariposa Folk Festival. His songwriting prowess was soon evident to several performers and he began to have his songs recorded buy the likes of Peter, Paul and Mary, Elvis Presley, Judy Collins, the Kingston Trio, and others. Lightfoot's 1970 album Sit Down Young Stranger did not initially sell very well but it featured the single If You Could Read My Mind which went gold and eventually sold over one million copies by 1971. Warner Brothers decided to re-release Sit Down Young Stranger under the title If You Could Read My Mind and it hit number five on the U.S. charts. Gordon Lightfoot had finally achieved success as a singer/songwriter equal to that of his success as just a songwriter.


The Experience

If you are looking to see a true legend and master of his craft look no further than world famous singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot. The world renowned singer and songwriter has spent decades perfecting his craft as well as finding new avenues of musical expression to explore. All of this hard work to which Gordon Lightfoot has dedicated his life is on full display when you head out to the concert hall the night of a Gordon Lightfoot performance. It is a transcendent experience like no other as Lightfoot entrances the audience with his enthralling voice and powerful lyrics. Whenever and wherever Gordon Lightfoot is performing, one thing is for certain, he will be playing some of the best folk songs of all time including Me and Bobby McGee, If You Could Read My Mind, and others. It is an incomparable concert that you will hope never ends. By the time the night is through you will be anxiously awaiting the next time Gordon Lightfoot comes back to town.


Trivia

In 1987 Gordon Lightfoot sued Michael Masser who composed the Whitney Houston hit The Greatest Love of All claiming that he had taken several bars of the melody from Lightfoot's hit If You Could Read My Mind. Lightfoot did this because he did not want people being confused and thinking that he himself had lifted the melody.
