Event description: There is no doubt that Pat Boone is the ORIGINAL American Idol, and his appeal continues to be universal in scope! Singer, actor/TV host, producer, songwriter, author, motivational speaker, TV pitchman, radio personality and humanitarian, Pat’s contribution to the American culture and country’s consciousness has reached legendary status. With over 45 million records sold and 38 top 40 hits, he’s recognized by Billboard Magazine as the #10 rock recording artist in history, placing higher on that impressive chart than either Madonna or Billy. Boone’s teen idol success led him to star in 14 major movie features with stars such as Ann Margaret, James Mason, Debbie Reynolds and Tony Curtis. In fact, he was Elvis’ main competition at that time. Boone became the youngest person to have his own weekly musical variety TV show, and in 1959 he wrote the lyric to the theme from the movie “Exodus,” about the creation of the State of Israel. It provided him with a special connection with the country, one that he has maintained. He possesses an Israel Cultural Award, the country’s highest award for a non native. Boone still holds the Billboard record for spending 220 consecutive weeks on the charts with one or more songs each week. See him perform live! $45 all seats
