"American Idol" judge Harry Connick Jr. will perform at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 1-2 at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Award-winning pianist, vocalist, composer, bandleader, actor and philanthropist Connick performs pop classics, ballads and New Orleans jazz from his multi-platinum albums with charm and his signature style. Along with his band, he leads audiences through a memorable evening of melody, humor and rousing entertainment.

Join legendary Wayne Newton for an up close and personal conversation about his six decade-long career, his legacy and the ever-changing Las Vegas music industry told through rare stories and videos. The man known to fans around the world as "Mr. Las Vegas" performs at 9 p.m. Sept. 25. From singing to acting to philanthropy, go "Behind the Neon Lights" and see how Newton became one of the most dedicated entertainers of his time.

The hit series "Songwriters" is back this September at Fallsview Casino with a special country edition featuring multi-award winning Bob DiPiero, Josh Osborne and Jessi Alexander. With a string of chart-topping singles under their belts, these songwriters share the creative journey behind the music and lyrics that have inspired legendary performances for country's biggest musical icons, including Tim McGraw, The Oak Ridge Boys, Reba, Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban.

With hits such as "Hound Dog," "Heartbreak Hotel," "All Shook Up," "Jailhouse Rock" and "Love Me Tender," Elvis Presley was rightly dubbed "The King of Rock & Roll." Stephen Michaels and a talented cast pay tribute to Presley's legacy of nearly 150 chart-topping singles in "Return to Grace," a heartfelt performance of the greatest musical moments of Presley's iconic career. The show is on stage Sept. 9-22 (excluding Sept. 16).

Tickets to the September shows will be available starting at noon Friday, June 12, at the Fallsview Casino box office (on any show date) or at all Ticketmaster outlets. Call Ticketmaster at 1-877-833-3110 or visit www.ticketmaster.ca.
