Every month finds world-class performers of all types taking the stage at the Fallsview Casino Resort, including legends of rock and roll, pop, comedy, dance, and more. This July is no exception as music and comedy lovers can all find ample reason to buy tickets and settle in for an unforgettable night in the resort’s intimate, state-of-the-art 1,500-seat theatre. From classic country to one of the world’s most popular comedians, here are four acts to travel to Niagara for at the height of summer’s fun.
1. Patti Labelle
One of the most celebrated and imitated R&B vocalists of all-time, Patti Labelle will take the stage at the Fallsview Casino Resort on July 10 and 11 at 9 p.m. She’s enjoyed massive success over the years with hits like “On My Own,” “New Day,” “When You Talk About Love,” and “Oh, People” to name a few. She first rose to prominence in the 1970s with the massive disco hit, “Lady Marmalade,” and she and her group the Bluebelles made history as the first African-American vocal group to be features on a “Rolling Stone” magazine cover.
She has enjoyed continuing success as a solo artist ever since, earning top five hits and Grammy nominations as recently as 2004. She is an unforgettable performer, and tickets for both shows start at $50.
2. Norm Macdonald
For one night only, on July 16 at 8:30 p.m., Canadian Norm MacDonald will perform his one-hour comedy special: “Norm MacDonald: Just Me Doing Stand-Up.” Widely recognized thanks to five years as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live,” MacDonald’s most current “day job” had him hosting “Sports Show with Norm MacDonald on Comedy Central.” Known for his stand-up chops, MacDonald is a favorite of live audiences everywhere. Tickets start at $30.
3. The Oak Ridge Boys
Perennial country favorites, the Oak Ridge Boys have been hard at work for over 40 years, although the core of the group has been performing together since 1943. They started out as a gospel quartet based in Knoxville, Tennessee, but they performed so often at the nuclear facility in Oak Ridge, they decided to take the name.
Their gospel roots are why, when they transitioned over to country in the 1970s, their vocal harmonies were such a defining characteristic of their sound. They’ve had dozens of hits, including “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “American Made,” and “You’re the One in a Million.” They’re slated to perform on July 17 and 18 at 9 p.m. Tickets start at $30.
4. Hall & Oates
Pop superstars Daryl Hall and John Oates hit the stage in Niagara Falls on July 23 for one night only at 8:30 p.m. Purveyors of seminal hits like “Rich Girl,” “Maneater,” “Every Time You Go Away,” “Private Eyes,” and many, many more, Hall & Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in history. While their golden decade was definitely the 1980s, the two have continued to write, record, and tour extensively. They’re both members of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tickets for the night start at $60.
