Burton Cummings coming back to Kelowna

Canadian legend bringing intimate Up Close and Alone Tour to the Kelowna Community Theatre

One of the most celebrated rock artists in Canadian music history will perform at Kelowna’s Community Theatre this fall as Burton Cummings will bring an intimate show to the Kelowna Community Theatre.

Cummings will be performing solo and recounting the stories behind his best known songs and also sharing personal moments from his outstanding career during the tour, called Up Close and Alone on Tuesday Oct. 17.

Cummings’ vocal prowess has been rated among the finest in rock music in North America, and his extensive catalogue of songs is the envy of his contemporaries. He is that rare artist who has transcended time, genres and generations, with a body of work that continues to resonate with fans both old and new.

Tickets for the Up Close and Alone solo concert tour go on sale July 7 through selectyourtickets.com.

HISTORY:

With Canada’s original rock ’n’ roll superstars The Guess Who, Burton Cummings scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums including, American Woman, These Eyes, Laughing, No Time, Share the Lake, Albert Flasher, Clap for the Wolfman and many more.

In 1976, Cummings and fellow Guess Who founder Randy Bachman split, and Cummings began a solo career. He achieved a gold record for his single Stand Tall and followed that with a dozen hit singles including My Own Way to Rock, I will play a Rhapsody, Fine Stait of Affairs, Break it to the Gently and more.

Cummings has also received numerous honours and awards. He is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canada’s Walk of Fame, multiple Juno award winner, recipient of the Order of Canada, and several BMI awards for over 1 million airplays of his songs, just to name a few.

Beyond those many accolades and accomplishments, he has been called Canada’s most beloved rock ’n’ roll son. How many Canadian rock stars can boast both a community centre and a performing arts theatre named in their honour?

Burton Cummings has been described as Canadian rock ’n’ roll royalty, a national treasure, and a living legend. For the musician, there has always been one constant: He remains true to himself and his own way to rock.
