KELOWNA — Described as Canadian rock ‘n’ roll royalty, a national treasure, and a living legend, Burton Cummings announces his highly anticipated Your Backyard Tour, kicking off in Montreal May 10, and arriving at Kelowna’s Prospera Place May 30.
This tour will be the first time in more than a decade that Cummings will tour on his own, performing an array of hits from a dazzling career spanning more than 40 years.
Whether the lead singer and songwriter with The Guess Who or on his own, Cummings has amassed more hit records than nearly any other Canadian.
Altogether Cummings has earned some 80 platinum and gold record awards.
With The Guess Who, he earned the first U.S. platinum album by a Canadian artist, and solo, the first quadruple platinum Canadian-produced album.
Recently, the best-selling book The 100 Top Canadian Singles, ranked American Woman the greatest Canadian single of all time.
His 2008 solo album, the critically-acclaimed Above The Ground, was his first to feature all original songs by Cummings.
Never content to rest on his extraordinary accomplishments, Cummings continues to write, record and perform.
“Not all artists are lucky enough to have that kind of staying power,” he admits. “It’s pretty amazing.”
