Neil Sedaka Tickets
Neil Sedaka Vegas Show Tickets
World famous singer and songwriter Neil Sedaka is coming to The E Center at the Edgewater Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada, on October 15. Sedaka's career has spanned more than six decades. The first hit song he wrote was Stupid Cupid for Connie Francis. Soon after, Sedaka signed his own performing contract with RCA, and the hits started to flow—The Diary, Stairway to Heaven, Oh! Carol, Calendar Girl, Happy Birthday Sweet-Sixteen, Little Devil, Next Door to an Angel, Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, and in later years, Bad Blood and Laughter in the Rain all became part of the musical lexicon in short order. At the same time, he continued to write chart-topping songs for a diverse list of musical greats such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, and the Captain & Tennille. Neil Sedaka was inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 1983, received a star on the Hollywood Walk-of-Fame, and in 2004, received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime-Achievement Award from the National Academy of Popular Music and the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.
What You Can Expect
At age 77, Neil Sedaka is still going strong, with his stop at the Edgewater Casino Resort part of an 11-city nationwide tour. You can bet he'll perform all his classic favorites, but Sedaka will include songs from his last two albums, The Real Neil (2013) and I Do It for Applause, which was released earlier this year. In both of his latest albums, Sedaka returned to his classical roots—at age 9, he studied classical piano at the prestigious Julliard School of Music, and at 16, he was named one of New York's best high school pianists.
The albums feature acoustical music and piano concertos, and I Do It for Applause includes his first-ever symphony, Joie de Vivre, performed with the London Philharmonia Orchestra. As Sedaka said of I Do It for Applause on his website, “The album is indeed the culmination of 63 years of writing’’, he says. He added that that was a gift he was born with and that his main objective was to always top the last collection and raise the bar. It could be years before Sedaka comes to Nevada again, so take this chance to see Sedaka at the Edgewater Casino Resort and judge for yourself if he met that objective. While there is no denying the fact that they have inspired mullions of music lovers all over the world, there will definitely be something better to learn if you make it to the venue in person and know what makes this artist keep on in the rather shifting sands of the music world.
