Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dion Comes to Tropicana


ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (August 17, 2015) – Known for creating some of the most vital and exciting doo-wop music on the American scene, Dion defined rock and roll for an entire generation. On Saturday, November 21, 2015, this beloved music icon will take the stage in the Tropicana Showroom at Tropicana Atlantic City.

Dion and his music represent a special time and place – a moment when a song could mean so much and a singer could sum up what it means to be young, in love and on top of the world. With his group Dion and the Belmonts, Dion earned a reputation for topping the charts with hits like “I Wonder Why,” “A Teenager in Love” and “Where or When.” They were pioneers in rock and roll, and they made music that has endured.

Going solo in 1960, Dion racked up a string of number-one hits that many still consider to be the best of the entire rock and roll era, from “Runaround Sue” to “Lovers Who Wander” to “The Wanderer.” Music Critics say he is the only first-generation rock and roll artist who has remained creative and relevant through the decades. In 1989, Dion was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2007 he was nominated for a Grammy. His last three albums have some of his best work. He has never stopped making music, because people have never stopped listening.

The doors to the Tropicana Showroom will open at 7 p.m. and show time is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $47 for balcony seating, $57 for mezzanine seating, and $72 for orchestra seating. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 21, 2015 at the Tropicana Box Office or through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or 1.800.745.3000.
