Rock N' Roll star Neil Sedaka's career has spanned nearly 55 years! He written, performed, produced, and inspired countless songs, and his canon of compositions will continue to stand the test of time.
Later this month Sedaka will play seven special dates in the UK, starting at the London Royal Albert Hall on 23rd October, finishing at the Nottingham Royal Centre on 4th November. The London show at the Royal Albert Hall will also see Neil accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Comments Neil - "It's always a joy to come back to the UK, where it all turned around for me in the 70s. My most loyal fan base is here and they have always been the most supportive of my work. Can't wait to sing the classics, as well as some new ones!"
Acknowledged as a musical genius (Sedaka clocked up over 25 million records before he was 23), Neil's undiminished soundscape has remained relevant across decades and genres and his numerous honours include a Grammy (and 5 nominations), a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, inductions into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, National Academy of Popular Music Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, BMI Awards and a Brooklyn street name.
In 2006, Neil received the UK's Guinness Award for Best Selling Single of the 21st Century for (Is This The Way To) Amarillo, originally written for Tony Christie forty years ago.
His many hit singles include 'Oh Carol', 'Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen', 'Solitaire', 'Calendar Girl', 'Little Devil' and 'Next Door To An Angel'. He has also seen his songs sung and turned into hits by the likes of Tony Christie, Andy Williams, Elvis Presley, Connie Francis and the Carpenters.
