ROCK ’n’ roll legend Neil Sedaka will give a performance of his best-loved tunes at Bristol’s Colston Hall.

The iconic musician and songwriter has been making music for more than 50 years and has performed, produced and inspired countless songs which still stand the test of time.

At the age of 16, Neil had already been voted as one of the best New York High School pianists.

He was catapulted into stardom after Connie Francis recorded his Stupid Cupid and followed that up with the release of chart toppers The Diary, Oh! Carol, Stairway To Heaven, Calendar Girl, and Little Devil.

His music became renowned for a unique recording style involving multi-tracking his own voice to achieve a rich sound.

Neil Sedaka will perform at the hall, in Colston Hall on October 12 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £40-45, are available from the box office on 01179 223686.
