Burton Cummings Plays Las Vegas' Orleans Showroom
Burton Cummings, legendary rocker and former frontman for The Guess Who, jammed to sold-out audiences on Jan. 17 and Jan. 18 at The Orleans Hotel and Casino.
Cummings and his explosive five-piece band were rewarded with numerous standing ovations at The Orleans Showroom. Many Canadians flocked to the shows to support their fellow countryman and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee.
Cummings warmed up with a similarly sold out solo performance Jan. 15 at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. Cummings wrapped his busier than ever 2013 touring slate with a batch of East Coast dates in mid-November, then launched 2014 with his first-ever headline shows in Las Vegas.
Years after Cummings joined The Guess Who as keyboardist and lead vocalist, the charismatic performer is still rocking his best loved classics, "These Eyes," "American Woman," "Undun," "No Time" and "Share The Land" and his renowned solo hit "Stand Tall" -among countless others-on tour every year across the U.S. and his native Canada, where the legendary band was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Enthusiastic, creative and fully embracing social media to stay in day to day touch with several generations of fans, Cummings is encouraging his loyal fans to share photos and videos from all of his concerts on his new real-time website.
The site has been filling up quickly with live performance photos and videos (from recent shows and over the years) via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram since Burton sent out a recent tweet encouraging fans to take photos and videos during concerts and to share them on social media using the hashtag #BCLIVE. Photos and videos are displayed in real time on the home page of BurtonCummings.com, creating an exciting sense of immediacy and community among excited fans.
