Paul Anka returns to River Rock

Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka will be in Richmond later this spring to present a May 31 concert, organizers announced this week.

River Rock Show Theatre will host the Ottawa-born-and-raised singer-songwriter, who originally opened the theatre with two shows in September 2005.

Anka has been involved in the music industry for over 50 years, establishing himself as one of Canada’s most prolific songwriters. He’s penned numerous top-10 hits, including “You Are My Destiny,” “Lonely Boy” and “Put Your Head On My Shoulder.” In 1969, he wrote “My Way” for Frank Sinatra followed two years later with “She’s A Lady” for Tom Jones.

In 2007, to celebrate his 50th anniversary in music, Anka released the album, Classic Songs: My Way. And in April, Anka will release his first autobiography, entitled My Way. A new duets album will follow later this year, featuring artists such as Sinatra, Jones, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion and Michael Bublé.

Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are $109.50 to $129.50, available at www.ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.
