Music legend Pat Boone will perform his hits during a concert at Queensborough Community College’s performing arts center on Sept. 29.
Tickets for the show, which begins at 3 p.m., are $45.
Boone recorded his first hits, “Ain’t That a Shame” and “Two Hearts, Two Kisses,” at age 21 in 1955. The songs made it to number one and eight, respectively, on the Billboard charts.
He has gone on to record numerous other hits, including “Bernadine” and “Love Letters in the Sand,” and sold more than 45 million records.
Boone has had a total 38 top 40 hits. He still holds the Billboard record for spending 220 consecutive weeks with one or more songs each week.
“I love the fact that Queensborough is diverse,” Boone said. “I’ve had the honor of singing with great artists from many backgrounds and am very proud of my loyal following around the world.”
The crooner also hosted the hit television series “The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom” and authored a number one bestseller in the 1950s titled “Twixt Twelve and Twenty,” a book of advice for adolescents that was written in response to fan letters.
