Sunday To-Do: Gordon Lightfoot

Posted By on Fri, Oct 3, 2008 at 3:56 PM



GORDON LIGHTFOOT
7 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $42-$52.

Six years ago, Gordon Lightfoot suffered a ruptured aortic aneurysm. Six weeks in a coma, four surgeries and two years of rehab followed. Improbably, he returned to the stage in 2004; he comes to Little Rock amidst a busy schedule. He spent most of spring and early summer on the road, and he'll hit the stage at Robinson after two weeks of almost non-stop cross-country touring. The crowd, likely boomer heavy, is sure to turn out in droves to see the Canadian folksinger. Even at 69, he's still got that distinctive baritone, and he's sure to perform signature songs like “Sundown,” “If You Could Read My Mind” and the “Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald.”
