Burton Cummings coming to Trail in October

Tickets go on sale at The Bailey on July 7

Burton Cummings, one of the most celebrated rock artists in Canadian music history, will perform at Trail’s Charles Bailey Theatre on Oct 30.

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, and he continues at the top of his game as a performer, singer, songwriter, and recording artist second to none.

With Canada’s original rock ’n’ roll superstars The Guess Who, Burton scored an unprecedented string of international hit singles and albums including, “American Woman,” “These Eyes,” “Laughing,” “No Time,” “Share the Land,” “Clap for the Wolfman,” and many more, all written or co-written by Cummings.

In 1976, Burton began his solo career and achieved a gold record for his single “Stand Tall.”He followed that with a dozen hit singles including “My Own Way to Rock,” “I Will Play a Rhapsody,” “Break it to them Gently.”

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 is also unquestionably 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 honor?

Burton Cummings Up Close and Alone solo concert tour features him on stage performing and recounting the stories behind his best known songs and also sharing personal moments from his career.
