Gordon is Still Awesome!
By Linda n Ohio from Ohio on 6/24/2010
Crowd Was In To It, Engaging Stage Presence, Great Encores, Great Lighting, Great Sound
Best For:

I have followed and known Gordon for over 35 years and am honored to have heard the best singer songwriter ever. Most recent at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering Ohio and in Akron at the Akron Civic Theatre 2010. His passion for music is unsurpassed- his emotion with which he sings continues to come through no matter what age- this will never change because Gordon and his songs are one- His love of the audience and their love of him blends both together- I am extremely proud of his accomplishments and again am honored to have known him . I would travel to all his shows if possible Gods Speed to Gordon and a great band - Rick, Terry, Barry and Michael Linda

A legend whose time has come and gone.
By Tom from York, Pa on 6/16/2010
Crowd Was In To It, Great Sound, Quality theatre
Very weak voice
Best For:

The backup group was the highlight of the show. Gordon Lightfoot appeared all of his 71 years. It was very hard to hear him sing, and I think at first he wasn't even hitting the microphone. He seems to mumble when signing or talking to the audience. I was very dissapointed in the performance. I too would recommend buying the CDs and listening to what used to be. He seems to still be suffering the effects of his medical problems from 8 years ago. His right hand seems to be still paralyzed from the stroke--it hardly moves. Without the great lead guitarist, it really would have been a disaster.

Light still has it all in 2010
By Chris from Southern California, Orange County on 5/18/2010
Crowd Was In To It, Engaging Stage Presence, Great Lighting, Great Sound
Best For:

He still has it-- saw him at the Coach House in San Jaun Capistrano California late last year---- the voice is a bit quieter but waaaaaaay in tune, great phrasing and control and of course playing...this is THE guy who writes all of these songs and no one on the planet sings them as well as he--- I will still be buying tickets when this stud is just humming the tunes--- it is still a great experience--colors on the palet change but the art is still as good --- or better--- I have seen him a half dozen times going back to the Golden Bear in Huntington Bech in about 68 or so----he is the best...end of story----

Gordon Lightfoot ROCKS years later
By Connie Cool!!!!! from vero beach, fl on 3/15/2010
Crowd Was In To It, Engaging Stage Presence, Great Encores, Great Lighting, Great Sound, Perfect Set List
Too Short
Best For:

Gordon Lightfoot put on such a fabulous, magnificant @ charming performance at the Sunrise Theatre in Ft. Pierce, Florida 3-13-10 !!!! The years for each and every one of us takes its toll, however, he took us down "memory-lane" like no other artis could. Only those who were with him thru the 60's can appreciate his passion for music & his audiance. His presence and sence of homor was so enchanting! Look at your own self - nothing stays the same forever. He @ his band performed with tenderness and sincerity. If he comes to your town & you relate to his poetic essence, GET A TICKET! Remember, time stands still for no one! He was outstanding & took me back to a time & place of how beautiful music began. His talent and life experiences should have us all take a look at our accomplishments.Do YOU still sound & look the same 35 years ago? He was awesome! He surely can jam!

Gordon Lightfoot Concert Tickets

A number of singers helped bring folk to the mainstream, and Gordon Lightfoot stands out as one of the most influential. The Canadian-born singer/songwriter has been a popular performer for more than five decades, and he is among one of the most highly-respected artists. With such an impressive track record, it's no wonder that Gordon Lightfoot tickets remain popular.

Lightfoot first became known as a songwriter for other established artists. He got his start in the music industry in the late 1950s when he began following renowned performers such as Pete Seeger and The Weavers, drawing inspiration from their folk tunes. In the 1960s, he penned hits for the likes of Elvis Pressley, The Clancy Brothers and the Kingston Trio. Eventually, it became evident that he was destined for success as a performer.

After performing extensively throughout the early 1960s, he released his debut album, Lightfoot!, in 1966. Praised by critics, the record performed modestly commercially, but it helped set Lightfoot down the path to stardom. Starting in the latter half of the 1960s, Lightfoot began releasing album after album, including the 1969 live album Sunday Concert, which was a big hit.

The 1970s proved to be Lightfoot's breakthrough decade. He enjoyed a string of popular songs including "Sundown" and "Carefree Highway," both of which reached No. 1, and "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," which topped out at No. 2. After establishing himself as a solo artist, Lightfoot's reputation continued to grow. Thanks to ballads such as "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and "Carefree Highway" it wasn't long before Gordon Lightfoot tickets were in high demand. Though well into his 70s, Lightfoot remains a dynamic performer with a distinctive sound.

He continues to work on new projects including 2004's Harmony, and in 2012 he was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame joining artists like Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson and John Mayer. That same year he released a LIVE album that perfectly captures his appeal as a performer.

One of the most revered singer/songwriters of his generation, Gordon Lightfoot has been an icon of folk rock for decades. With a loyal fan following, not to mention impressive record sales, the Canada native remains a legend in the genre, and Gordon Lightfoot tickets are still a hot commodity. Anybody who gets to see him LIVE will certainly remember the experience for years to come. Hear all his songs old and new. Buy your Gordon Lightfoot tickets today!
