Linus Entertainment

Legendary singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot passed away on May 1, but his music continues to live on. And now fans will be able to enjoy that music with a new live album.

Linus Entertainment is set to posthumously release Lightfoot’s final album, At Royal Albert Hall, on July 14. The double album was recorded live at the famed London venue on May 24, 2016, and features “every song performed in the order they were played, right down to the encore.”
