Default PHONE CALL from GORDON-on page 2-illness-re-scheduled dates posted

Hi,

Would appreciate hearing if the Rockford IL show is postponed/canceled. I'm going and I have about a 5 hour drive to get there and a hotel booked.

So if anyone hears anything in the next few days regarding that show, I'd very much appreciate hearing about it.

And of course, hope Gord gets well soon.

Thanks,
Steve

You'd be best to call the venue on Monday if there's no word otherwise...I'd call for sure.. As of right now there's no notice at their website that the event is postponed.. http://coronadopac.org/events/?event_id=128

Thanks Char.

I was concerned because it appears there is nothing at the theater over the weekend or Monday and therefore the box office will not be open.

And I was confused about the BMO Bankcenter thing. I thought it meant an actual bank where one could walk in and buy tickets when the theater was closed. I now understand it's an arena with its own box office that also services the Coronado. So I will call the number on Monday and hopefully someone will know if the show is on.

Thanks,
Steve

I will be attending the Rockford show also, God and Gord willing! ha ha
Wish the was some heads-up word one way or the other as to whether the show is on or postponed. I've searched multiple sources and can not any info..., so I'm assuming that the show is on.

Default March dates cancelled-RESCHEDULED show dates posted..

FROM RICK: A bump in the road. We've had to postpone and re-schedule the March dates of our 2015 tour schedule. Health issues must come first! We will "Press On" refreshed and rested sooner than later.

check venue websites for more info as it is posted re: reschedule/refunds etc.

RICK: RICK says:
it's Gord under the weather, the rest of us are just crazy - no known cure except to keep playin' music.

Sorry folks, I wasn't being evasive. Gord needs some rest and is doing better already. We're just looking at the big picture. We have a lot more to do down the road ..

Thanks for the update. I was really looking forward to the Reading PA show but hope I'll see him later when he's recovered fully-meantime we'll all have to "press on".

Default Rockford IL postponed!

I just received the following in an email:

Attention ticket holder!
Message sent on behalf of Coronado Performing Arts Center, Rockford IL:
We just learned that your upcoming event has been postponed:
Gordon Lightfoot
Coronado Performing Arts Center
Tuesday, March 17th at 8PM New date: To Be Announced!

Your original tickets are still good and will be honored once the new date is announced.
Gordon Lightfoot suffered an acute case of food poisoning over the weekend and is under doctor’s orders to recuperate. He extends his regrets to his fans and looks forward to performing in Rockford very soon. This event will be rescheduled; please hold on to your ticket as it will be valid for the new date. More information will be forwarded the moment it becomes available.

Edit to add: I didn't see the earlier thread about the entire March schedule being canceled when I posted the above. Anyway, get well soon Gord!

Representatives for Gordon Lightfoot just released a statement.

The Gordon Lightfoot concert scheduled for 8 p.m. Sunday March 22 at the Akron Civic Theater has been postponed due to his "acute illness."

Representatives say doctors expect a full recovery, however, they have issued a strict order of complete rest and recuperation for the next 7-14 days.

This show will be re-scheduled for April or May.
