Ring in the New Year in Teen Idol Tradition with Paul Anka, Then Wine & Dine in South Florida Style with Non-Stop Party Packages at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Ring in the New Year 2012 in teen idol tradition with celebrated pop superstar Paul Anka at Hard Rock Live on New Year's Eve on December 31 at 10:30 p.m. Then, wine and dine in South Florida style with non-stop party packages at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Over the five decades, Paul Anka has forged a career that's unlike any other in the history of pop. He's seamlessly made the transition from '50s teen idol to celebrated songwriter to a contemporary torchbearer for all that swings. The multi-talented musician has had a song on Billboard's charts in every decade since 1957 when he was only 17. According to BMI, since the inception of his career, Anka's songs have been performed well over 90 million times worldwide and his LP and single sales collectively number more than 80 million. He's recorded over 126 albums in a wide variety of languages, selling close to 15 million albums, internationally. Anka also has been named the 21st most successful artist in Billboard's history, putting him alongside music greats Elvis Presley and the Beatles. With well over 900 songs to his credit, Mr. Anka's most memorable are "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," "My Way," and the now famous theme from "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson."
