ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (June 19, 2017) – Known for creating some of the most vital and exciting doo-wop music on the American scene, Dion DiMucci (best known simply as Dion) defined rock and roll for an entire generation. On Saturday, October 21, 2017, 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, he topped 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 $45, $55 and $70, not including tax and fees. Tickets are available beginning Friday, June 23 can be purchased at the Tropicana Box Office and through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or 1.800.745.3000.
