Gordon Lightfoot

Théâtre Maisonneuve October 1, 2021

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Gordon Lightfoot show scheduled on September 24, 2020 (initially planned for April 16, 2020) has been postponed until October 1, 2021. We ask that you keep your ticket(s), which will be honoured at the venue entrance.

Fellow Canadian, Robbie Robertson calls him a national treasure, while millions of fans the world over continue to be touched by Gordon Lightfoot’s remarkable contributions to music history. These time-defying songs document the events that shape our lives and have gone on to earn this legendary singer/songwriter an international reputation as one of the most anticipated live performers. With his trademark soulful vocals, Gordon Lightfoot’s concerts continually fill to capacity with legions of fans eager to once again experience the unmistakable Lightfoot sound.

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. 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, he was made a Companion of the Order of Canada and is also a member of the Order of Ontario and in 2004, he was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.
