The legendary Gordon Lightfoot performed Thursday night at the ZoomerPlex, as part of a special celebration on what would’ve been Stompin’ Tom Connors’ 82nd birthday.
“First time I heard him was in 1963 at the Horseshoe Tavern and I followed his career through all of the years,” Gordon told the Zoomer Hall crowd.
The Canadian music icon also explained, that at the age of 80, he plans to keep performing for as long as he’s able.
“Last year, I did 82 shows. That would be seven trips and each trip, I would do about a dozen shows. I enjoy the work and I’m lucky and I’m very fortunate to be able to continue like this. One time I was out for two and a half years over a health issue and I fought my way back, and thought I’m not going to stop again until I have to, just keep rollin’.”
