Absolutely amazing concert. Gordon Lightfoot sounded as good, at 80, as he did at 40. He put on a great show, sang beautifully, and was very entertaining. I took my mom for her 91st birthday which was the same day as the concert, March 10, 2019, and she absolutely loved it. He sang his greatest songs such as Sundown, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, If You could Read my Mind. Gordon Lightfoot had some of his greatest hits while I was in high school, so it really took me back. My mom did not know much about his music, but she fell in love with him during this concert. My mom and I had the best time and I will always remember both Gordon Lightfoot's performance and my mom's 91st birthday. Thank you for a wonderful performance and a wonderful time with my mom.

What a night to anticipate! the reopening of Toronto's premier concert venue, by one of its best-loved and most frequent performers! Looked forward to this for months: Gordie at Massey in November is a stirring recall of youth.. The standing applause was for Gordie's Life Achievement, not for this concert. His voice has lost its timbre, its resonance. He is frail and thin. More credit to him for going on the toad when many people his age are in care homes. But he is no longer the Gordie that we know. A day later, the strongest impression was the best most haunting version of "Edmund Fitzgerald" I ever heard. His backup group gave the best interpretation and was worth the whole evening. They did a great job all through the night. But it was sad, in the way of last things. Like the last formal dance at high school. Like the final visit to your parents' house after they pass away. Gordie should have retired while still on top. But even so, I would not have missed this concert.
