One of America's favorites is back on stage! The singer, songwriter and actor performs his greatest hits spanning more than five decades - from "Diana" and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder" to "(You're) Having My Baby" and "This Is It." In a show loaded with romance, Paul Anka takes fans on a musical journey with a repertoire drawn from his years as a teen hitmaker ("Lonely Boy"), to in-demand songwriter, to the release of his latest albums, Rock Swings and Classic Songs, My Way. One of the most prolific and versatile of songwriters, he wrote the Oscar-nominated theme for The Longest Day, the 1962 film in which he also starred. Among his many credits, he is the composer of the theme to The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and "She's a Lady" for Tom Jones, and co-writer of Michael Jackson's posthumous worldwide hit "This Is It."
