Burton Cummings and Band
Sunday, December 16th, 2012
Doors: 7:00PM Show: 8:00PM
Renowned Canadian rock musician and Order of Canada recipient, Burton Cummings and his band will perform at Royal theatre on Sunday, December 16th at 8:00pm.
Cummings was the lead singer and keyboardist of the legendary group, The Guess Who from 1965 to 1975. He sang, wrote and co-wrote most of the band’s music, including successes like “These Eyes”, “Laughing”, “No Time”, “Share the Land”, “Star Baby”, “Clap For the Wolfman” and “American Woman”, which stayed at #1 on the Billboard charts for several weeks.
In 1975, after ten years, Cummings left The Guess Who to become a solo artist and the group disbanded. His subsequent solo successes included songs like “Stand Tall”, “I’m Scared”, “Break it to Them Gently” and “Fine State of Affairs”.
In 2000, The Guess Who reunited for concerts across Canada, and in 2001, they toured the U.S. extensively with a “close to original” lineup.
Cummings continues to write both songs and prose. He has performed occasional shows with Randy Bachman as The Bachman-Cummings Band, and makes occasional appearances at various Canadian venues as a solo performer. SONY/BMG released a compilation album titled The Bachman Cummings Song Book, featuring hits from The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Cummings’ solo career. Bachman & Cummings also released The Thunderbird Trax (1987).
Cummings latest album, Burton Cummings , Massey Hall is scheduled for release on October 30. The new album features 18 of the very best tracks from a career spanning 5 decades.
