PALA – Rock and roll singing/songwriting legend Neil Sedaka will make the Pala Events Center a special place when he performs at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 11, at Pala Casino Spa & Resort.

Sedaka’s impressive six-decade career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations in the 50s, a relevant songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60s, and a superstar in the 70s while remaining a constant force in writing and performing up to the present day.

He catapulted to stardom after Connie Francis recorded "Stupid Cupid." She then sang Sedaka and collaborator Howard Greenfield’s 1960 spring break classic, "Where the Boys Are," which would become her biggest hit. Advertisement

Sedaka soon recorded chart toppers, "Little Devil," "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," "Next Door To An Angel" and "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." In 1964, following the British Invasion, he wrote hit songs for Frank Sinatra ("The Hungry Years"), Elvis ("Solitaire"), Tom Jones ("Puppet Man"), The Monkees ("When Love Comes Knocking At Your Door") and The Fifth Dimension ("Workin’ On A Groove Thing").

He then made a huge comeback in 1972 in the United Kingdom with his album "Emergence" and his innovations with Elton John on the Rocket record label.
