Gordon Lightfoot Tour Schedule

It is not just anyone who can accurately be described as a living legend, however when talking about Gordon Lightfoot the description could not be more appropriate. He is credited as being one of the main artists responsible for the rise of folk music in the Sixties 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 is hitting the road in 2014 and is an act that no music lover will want to miss. On February 4th his tour will kick off at Mesa Regal RV Resort in Mesa, California where he will play an afternoon show and an evening show. The following night, again in Mesa, he will play two shows at Cal-Am Resorts - Valle del Oro Ballroom. From the 8th through the 12th he will be touring in Texas, playing in El Paso, Midland, Austin, and San Antonio.

In May, Gordon Lightfoot will begin his Canadian tour playing Credit Union Place in Summerside, Prince Edwardon the 1st. Dates at Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario on the 7th before he heads over to K-Rock Center in Kingston, Ontario on the 9th for another gig. The tour will finish on May 10th with a concert at Budweiser Garden in London, Ontario. Even if you can't make any of the dates mentioned, be sure to check back to StubHub regularly to learn about all of the latest additions to Gordon Lightfoot's tour.


About the Artist

Gordon Lightfootwas born in Orillia ion Ontario, Canada and began teaching himself to play guitar and sing at an early age. By 1958 Lightfoot moved to California where he found influences in 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. Soon 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 more active in the Canadian folk scene and appeared 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 Elvis Presley, Peter, Paul and Mary, 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.
