Gordon Lightfoot has two Orillia concerts planned for November 11th to help two charities.
A Canadian musical icon will be gracing the stage of the Orillia Opera house next month -- and it's all for a good cause.
Gordon Lightfoot will mark his return to the Orillia Opera House stage next month with two charity fundraising concerts to benefit the Opera House and Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital.
Lightfood is quoted as saying he is looking foward to performing in Orillia once again and the Opera House holds some very fond memories
Apart from a surprise appearance at Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia this past summer where he performed two songs, Lightfoot hasn’t played in his home town since 2009.
Back then he again played two benefit shows with proceeds split between the same two causes.
Tickets were in such demand that all 1,400 were gone within 48 hours.
Tickets for “Gordon Lightfoot in Concert” go on sale this Thursday, October 11th at 11 AM.
The shows are 3 PM and 7 PM on November 11th.
