1950s pop dreamboat Paul Anka brings his legendary concert experience to Savannah this weekend! The Ottowa native, born to a Syrian-American father and Canadian-Lebanese mother, was a prodigy from the start, diving into show business at the tender age of 12. The crooner has charted now-classics throughout his storied career, including "Diana," "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," "Lonely Boy," and many more.

In addition to his famous voice, Anka’s songwriting skills contributed to his icon status; he wrote the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and the Tom Jones smash hit “She’s A Lady.” Anka also penned the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra’s signature song, “My Way.”

Anka comes to town to celebrate 60 years of entertainment and song mastery.

Sunday, June 25, 7 p.m., $42.50-159.50 via etix.com, all-ages
