Seneca Casinos announces the addition of two performers to its already rock-solid lineup of spring entertainment. Coming to Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in Niagara Falls, USA, will be Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas on May 10, and longtime singer-songwriter Paul Anka on April 19.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 24, at noon to see Thomas at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel as part of a 40-day North American solo tour. Ticket prices start at $55 for the Niagara Falls performance, which takes place at 8 p.m.

Thomas is a distinctive vocalist and accomplished songwriter, garnering a string of accolades - both for his work as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty, as well as for his solo work and collaborations with other artists. He is best known for his chart-topping hits such as "Lonely No More" and "This Is How a Heart Breaks," and Matchbox Twenty hits "Push," "3 A.M.," "If You're Gone" and "Bent." Thomas also earned three Grammy Awards for "Smooth," his smash collaboration with Santana. He is currently at work on his third solo album, and has contributed to sales of more than 80 million records throughout his career.

After nearly 60 years in the music industry, singer-songwriter Paul Anka continues to delight audiences worldwide with his powerful vocals and charm. He performs at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, April 19, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $50 and go on sale Monday, Jan. 27, at noon.

Anka's first single, "Diana," soared to No. 1 in the U.S. and U.K. in 1957, and dozens of popular singles followed into the 1960s - including "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," "Puppy Love" and the No. 1 hit "Lonely Boy." After a string of Las Vegas shows throughout the remainder of the 1960s, he teamed up with Odia Coates in 1974 on the No. 1 duet, "(You're) Having My Baby." Throughout his career, Anka also achieved much success writing songs for other legendary artists, such as "She's a Lady" by Tom Jones and the lyrics to "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. His latest album, "Duets," was released in 2013 and includes collaborations with Celine Dion, Michael Bublé, Dolly Parton, Peter Cetera and many other superstars.

Thomas and Anka join a star-studded spring entertainment lineup that was recently announced by Seneca Casinos, including Trace Adkins, Heart, Jay Leno and Jon Anderson in Niagara Falls, and Gary Allan and Kevin Costner & Modern West in Salamanca. Tickets for all of those shows are on sale now and available for purchase at Seneca Casino box offices, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by phone at 800-745-3000.
