Former Lead Singer of The Guess Who, Burton Cummings to Take the Stage at The Orleans Showroom May 9-10
Renowned musician and songwriter Burton Cummings will return to perform his timeless hits at The Orleans Showroom on May 9 and 10.
Cummings began his music journey as the lead singer of Canadian band The Guess Who, whose hits included “These Eyes,” “Laughing, No Time,” “American Woman,” “Share The Land” and “Hang On To Your Life.” The band was the first Canadian group to reach #1 on the Billboard charts, as well as the first to earn a platinum album for sales of more than 1 million copies in the United States.
In 1976, Cummings began his solo career, scoring a gold record for his debut single, “Stand Tall.” To follow, Cummings produced more than a dozen hit singles and albums, including “I’m Scared,” “My Own Way to Rock” and “Timeless Love.” Cummings continued his career by starring in several top-rated television specials, going on tour as a member of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band, and releasing his first live solo album “Massey Hall” in 2012.
Cummings is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, Canadian Walk of Fame, Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame and Prairie Music Hall of Fame. He is a recipient of multiple Juno Awards, the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, the Governor General’s Performance Arts Award (GGPAA) and several BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) awards for more than 1 million airplays of his songs.
Last year, Cummings announced the launch of “Burton Cummings Radio,” a monthly playlist for the music service aggregator bop.fm, curated to give fans a unique glimpse into Burton’s personal music collection.
