but for regular runs annually or every 18 months for 4 or 7 nights, I wonder if he's played there 100x yet?
Based on information in the "Tour Schedules" section of Wayne Francis's website on Lightfoot (http://www.lightfoot.ca/tourschd.htm), it appears that Lightfoot has performed at Massey Hall on 147 occasions since 1974. Below is a list which indicates the number of times that Lightfoot has performed at Massey Hall in each year since 1974. (Years in which Lightfoot did not play at Massey Hall have been omitted.)

The "Massey Hall Centennial" concert that took place on June 14, 1994 may not have been a regular Lightfoot concert. If it wasn't, Lightfoot has apparently put on 146 full-length concerts at Massey Hall since 1974. That is an extraordinary achievement!
