Whom would you rather see: Gordon Lightfoot or Bob Dylan? Add to ...

In 1975, Gordon Lightfoot invited Bob Dylan and the musicians of the Rolling Thunder Revue tour back to his house for a party, where Dylan recorded Lightfoot singing his Ballad in Plain D in a bedroom. On Wednesday, the Sundown singer and the enigmatic former Zimmerman share the city of Toronto again when the former plays Massey Hall and the latter hits the Air Canada Centre. We size up the two troubadour titans and long-time pals.

Bob Dylan plays Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Nov. 14, and Montreal’s Bell Centre Nov. 16; Gordon Lightfoot plays Toronto’s Massey Hall Nov. 14 to 17.
