Injury forces postponement of Gordon Lightfoot concert

The Gordon Lightfoot concert scheduled for Sept. 21 at Trine University has been postponed due to an injury to the singer/songwriter.

An email statement said, “Doctor’s orders have mandated that Gordon will not be sufficiently recovered from an injury sustained while working out at his gym to be able to travel in time for his upcoming tour, and, as such, it is with deep regret and disappointment that he will not be able to perform at your upcoming show. … He will make a full recovery, given a bit more time.”

Lightfoot has cancelled tour dates since late July due to the injury, according to news reports.

“His people thought he would be back on the road by now, but unfortunately sometimes recovery takes longer than you would like,” said Randy White, director of special events at Trine.

The performance will be rescheduled for early next year. The new date will be communicated to ticket holders as soon as it is available.
