Legendary Rocker Burton Cummings Set to Perform His First Ever Headlining Shows in the City January 17-18 at the Orleans Hotel and Casino

"American Woman"... Is Coming to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2013) - Legendary rocker Burton Cummings (www.burtoncummings.com) is gearing up to launch 2014 with his first ever headlining shows in Las Vegas, Jan. 17-18, 2014 at the Orleans Hotel and Casino. Tickets are on sale now and priced (inclusive) at $44, $55 and $66.

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.

"It's ironic that both with the band and as a solo artist, I have performed all over the world, but never an official show in Las Vegas," says Cummings. "I played a private performance for Universal at the Hard Rock in Vegas once, but I'm excited about setting a new precedent in my career. I've seen pictures of the showroom and they've got this cool IMAX type seating with a slanted floor. The cool part about playing rooms like this is that our shows turn them into 'outdoor' festival experiences with a real party atmosphere."

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.
