The classic Canadian crooner belted out hits like â€œItâ€™s a Beautiful Day,â€ â€œClose Your Eyes,â€ â€œHavenâ€™t Met You Yet,â€ â€œThatâ€™s All,â€ â€œEverything,â€ â€œHome,â€ â€œSave the Last Dance for Me,â€ and â€œA Song for Youâ€ to a sold out crowd.
The show featured a variety of songs that entertained audience members and bridged the age gap. Backed by a 13-piece band, Buble sang covers of Peggy Leeâ€™s â€œFever,â€ The Beatlesâ€™ â€œAll You Need Is Love,â€ Elvis Presleyâ€™s â€œBurning Love,â€ Frank Sinatraâ€™s â€œYou Make Me Feel So Young,â€ Van Morrisonâ€™s â€œMoondance,â€ The Jackson Fiveâ€™s â€œWhoâ€™s Loving Youâ€ and Billy Paulâ€™s â€œMe and Mrs. Jones.â€ The timeless tunes prompted fans young and old to sing along and dance in the aisles.
The â€˜To Be Lovedâ€™ Tour is in support of Bubleâ€™s eighth studio album, To Be Loved and the Atlantic City stop was the last one on Bubleâ€™s leg of the North American tour. The multi-Grammy Award winner has played to millions of spectators around the world while his hit, â€œTo Be Loved,â€ topped the charts in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and more than a dozen other countries.
On Bubleâ€™s website, the contemporary pop singer describes his latest body of work, â€œThe album swings big time, it rocks, itâ€™s soulful, itâ€™s happy, sometimes a little sad, itâ€™s romantic, itâ€™s yummy and itâ€™s heartfelt.â€
Reminiscent of the type of shows icons such as Sinatra and Dean Martin previously performed, Buble mirrored their charismatic showmanship by engaging attendees as he told jokes, funny stories and little anecdotes revealing his playful personality.
Beverly Delichâ€”Bubleâ€™s first managerâ€”launched Buble’s career after she met the 18-year-old when he was performing at a Vancouver talent show. In 2000, he got his big break when he performed â€œMack the Knifeâ€ at the wedding of the daughter of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. Now approaching 40, Buble is embarking on a new phase in his life. Last summer, the artist and his wife, Luisana Lopilato welcomed a son, Noah.
For over a decade, Buble has proven that true talent, a polished production and a delightful stage persona can light up any venue in the world and enchant all in attendance.
