His love of music and performing dates back to his childhood in New Orleans, where he studied piano with such luminaries as James Booker and Ellis Marsalis. He first performed publicly at age five, appeared on his first recording at age nine, and released his self-titled major label debut for Columbia Records at 19, only a year after his high school graduation and his move to New York City.

Harry Connick Jr. has since released 24 albums, totalling more than 28 million in sales, and has received numerous music honours, including three Grammy Awards.

The show will take place on Sunday, August 11, 2013 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with doors opening at 6:30pm. Reserved seating tickets for this all ages show are $45, $65, $95 (including GST, plus fees) and are now on sale through Live Nation, Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone 1-855-985-5000.

  86. Lorraine DuclosSaturday, July 27th, 2013 — 7:00pm PDT

    He is a dreamboat. He is a throwback to the iconic crooners of the 40’s and 50’s. Singing for him seems just as natural as breathing! Although he seems a singer out of place in time fortunately for us he is also very now!

  87. VoodooSaturday, July 27th, 2013 — 8:29pm PDT

    So cool!!

  88. DwSaturday, July 27th, 2013 — 8:30pm PDT
