With more than 50 years in the industry, Paul Anka is considered one of the most prolific songwriters in the history of popular music. Armed with a sense of tenacity as formidable as his talent, he has established himself as a true artist, successfully transitioning from ‘50s teen idol to celebrated songwriter by penning the Top 10 hits, “You Are My Destiny,” “Put Your Head On My Shoulder,” “Puppy Love,” and “Diana,” as well as Tom Jones’ “She’s A Lady,” and Sinatra’s “My Way.” During his Waterbury tour stop, Anka will perform several of these signature hits, as well as timeless renditions of classic holiday favorites from his Songs of December album, including “The Christmas Song,” “Let It Snow,” and “Winter Wonderland.”
Before the concert, the Palace Theater will host a 6 pm preshow dinner in the Poli Club, located on the theater’s mezzanine level. The dinner is $40 per member and $50 per non-member and includes tax, service fees, coffee, and tea. A cash bar is available. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made when purchasing tickets through the Box Office.
