BURTON CUMMINGS RESCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER

(Newton, NJ) --    The Burton Cummings performance at The Newton Theatre has been rescheduled for Friday, November 15th at 8:00 pm. The original July performance had to be postponed due to a scheduling conflict. Tickets from then will be honored on the new date.

Few artists have achieved the level of public success and critical acclaim that Burton Cummings has enjoyed in a dazzling career spanning more than forty years. Whether as lead singer, songwriter and keyboardist with the Guess Who or on his own, Burton Cummings has amassed more hit records than just about any other Canadian performer in history. Hits including These Eyes, Laughing, No Time, American Woman, Stand Tall, and You Saved My Soul all bear Burton's distinctive stamp. His voice has been rated among the finest in rock music.

Burton Cummings is one of the most celebrated rock artists in Canadian music history, honored  as a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canadian Walk of Fame, several BMI (Broadcast Music Industry) awards for over 1 million airplays of his songs and other industry honors. With the Guess Who he earned the first US platinum album by a Canadian artist, and on his own the first quadruple platinum Canadian- produced album. Altogether Burton has earned some 80 platinum and gold record awards. Recently, the best-selling book The 100 Top Canadian Singles ranked American Woman the greatest Canadian single of all time. He also enjoys a world-wide stature shared by only a select few Canadian artists.

The consummate artist, performer and professional, Burton possesses an extraordinary gift for entertaining. As a concert draw, he is second to none delighting audiences from 10 to 10,000. His most recent album, 2008's critically-acclaimed Above The Ground, was his first ever to feature all original songs by Burton. Fans and critics alike glowed with superlatives citing the album as his best work in decades.

Canadian rock music royalty, Burton Cummings remains at the top of his game as an unrivaled singer, songwriter and recording artist.
