His songbook — which truly ranks as one of the finest in popular music history — is downright timeless. Yet, the singer himself is proving to be just as ageless a wonder. Sure, technically speaking, this Canadian legend is 78-years old. Yet, he sure didn’t act like a man approaching 80 as he poured his heart, soul and remarkable energy into his generous set. He took the stage right after 8 p.m. and was still there as the clock ticked past 11:30 p.m.
