-- Billboard magazine’s all time greatest charting pianist, Roger Williams, makes a triumphal return to Las Vegas to celebrate his 84th birthday. Williams will headline the South Point Hotel-Casino-Spa, September 26-28th.
“People should do what they love to do on their birthdays, and for me that’s performing for a live audience. I’m excited to be bringing an all new show to Las Vegas. Though I’ve been doing this for over 60 years, I truly feel like I’m just beginning,” said Williams.
Keeping a regimen and schedule daunting for many half his age, Williams will perform a 12 hour piano marathon on his actual birthday October 1st at the Harry S. Truman Library in Independence, Missouri. Roger is known as the “Pianist to the Presidents”
having played for nine Chief Executives beginning with Truman.
Williams is one of America’s most endearing and enduring artists with 18 gold and platinum albums to his credit. His hits have included Born Free, The Impossible Dream, Laura’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago, Till, Near You
and the Theme from Somewhere In Time
. His signature song Autumn Leaves
still stands as the number one selling piano recording in history.
Roger is currently flexing new muscles as an author and is in the process of writing Living the Great Life to 80 and Beyond
. The book contains contributions from former Presidents Bush and Carter, Art Linkletter, Jack LaLanne, former Senator Bob Dole, artist Bill Keane (Family Circus), the late Dr. Michael DeBakey among many others.
Roger Williams will perform nightly at 7:30 p.m.at the Showroom at South Point, September 26-28th. Tickets are $25, $30 and $35 and can be purchased at www.southpointcasino.com
