Default Three new live stream shows - el mocambo- may 6,7,8 2021

If you could read Gordon Lightfoot’s mind, you would have known he’d be early in line for the COVID-19 vaccination.

SCRAWLER: Gordon Lightfoot vaccinated and anxious to get back on stage.
If you could read Gordon Lightfoot’s mind, you would have known he’d be early in line for the COVID-19 vaccination.

“I always planned on getting it because me and the band want to get back out on the road to see our fans again,” the 82-year-old legend said Friday with a chuckle. “Whenever that is, we’ll get back out there and play.”

So when he got the chance to get his Moderna shot, he headed to Seneca College with his wife Kim on Wednesday.

“The people who ran the clinic were just great,” said Lightfoot. “We met many terrific people also getting the vaccine.”
And it didn’t hurt at all.
“I hardly felt it and have had no side effects,” he said.

Now the focus shifts back to music and getting ready for three big shows coming up at the El Mocambo to be streamed to the world.
“May 6th, 7th and 8th and the whole band is excited,” said Lightfoot. “It gives us something to look forward to.”

During the pandemic, “I have followed all the protocols” to keep safe and “make sure I get out for a walk every day as well.”

He and the band also are heading into the Canterbury Music Company studio on Dufferin St. to rehearse.
“They really do an amazing job allowing a band to socially distance and be protected so they can play together,” he said. “It’s important to us because we are really focused on the sound. The acoustics in the renovated El Mocambo are as good as anywhere I have played.”
The only thing missing is the audience but “I know they are out there and we can feel them.”

And one day soon they will all be together riding that Carefree Highway once again thanks to Gordon Lightfoot getting the jab.

Any updated info on the El Mocambo shows? The El Mocambo website doesn't have any coming events listed.
