Gordon Lightfoot in Concert: The Legend Lives On

There are few Michiganders who don’t know the name Gordon Lightfoot, famous in these parts for his 1976 ballad “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

That was far from Lightfoot’s only hit, and you can hear all of them when he comes to Miller Auditorium May 13*. Through a special promotion, Encore readers can get a 15 percent discount on tickets.

The concert, Gordon Lightfoot in Concert: The Legend Lives On, will feature his well-known hits, including “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,” and "Rainy Day People," as well as some deep album cuts for die-hard fanatics, all of which are woven together with some of Lightfoot's own behind- the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his historic 50-year musical career.

The show begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $53—$83. Get the Encore discount by purchasing through this link: tickets.millerauditorium.com/17204?promo=encore
