Neil Sedaka

At State Theatre New Jersey


See Neil Sedaka live in concert with a full band! During the course of his impressive 60-year career, Neil Sedaka was one of the first teen pop sensations of the 1950s, a successful songwriter for himself and other artists in the 1960s, and a superstar in the 1970s. Today, he remains a constant force in writing and performing. After being catapulted to stardom when singer Connie Francis recorded his song "Stupid Cupid," Sedaka was able to sign a contract with RCA as a writer and performer of his own material. His chart-topping hits included "The Diary," "Oh! Carol," " Stairway to Heaven," "Calendar Girl," "Little Devil," "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," "Next Door To An Angel," and "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." As a songwriter, Sedaka has penned hit songs for such artists as Frank Sinatra (“The Hungry Years”), Elvis Presley (“Solitaire”),  Tom Jones (“Puppet Man”), The Monkees (“When Love Comes Knocking At Your Door”), and The Fifth Dimension (“Workin’ on a Groovy Thing”). In  1976, "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" was re-released as a ballad, and made music history when it reached number one on the charts, becoming the first song recorded in two different versions by the same artist to achieve that feat.
