Gordon Lightfoot Announces 11 City Canadian Tour

This tour is being announced rather breathlessly this morning, complete with a Canadian Press story that starts:

A few years ago, fans of Gordon Lightfoot were wondering whether the music legend would ever be able to perform again.

Problem is, Gordon Lightfoot did shows last year, has a full concert schedule for this year and bookings for next year.

None the less, it is the legendary Lightfoot's first cross country jaunt in seven years, and it is good to see a working musician out working. The tour starts Oct 3rd, in Vancouver and breaks on the 15th in Kitchener. It resumes with dates in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto in November. Here's the schedule, from Lighfoot.ca:
