Westbury, NY - August 12, 2014 - Since 1957 at the young age of 14, Paul Anka has been riding up the record charts as one of music's popular teen idols. In the 1950s and 60s, Anka had a string of Top 40 hits including "Diana," "Puppy Love," I'm Just a Lonely Boy," and "Put Your Head on my Shoulder." As a singer and songwriter, Paul Anka continued his success into the next fifty years by writing hits for other performers and recording artists including Tom Jones "She's A Lady" and Frank Sinatra "My Way."
For the past 54 years, Paul Anka has continued to record and tour extensively throughout the world and is still packing concert halls with his devoted fans. It seems that every few years, Paul Anka reinvents his music to appeal to his longtime fans as well as to a new audience. Among the teen idols of the early days of Rock and Roll, Paul Anka has remained in the public eye continuing his successful career as an award winner songwriter and performer.
Now, Paul Anka is returning to Long Island for one night only on Saturday, November 8, 2014 for one concert at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, and Long Island Cares, Inc. has a limited block of premium sets including VIP treatment.
