Burton Cummings has announced another date for his 2024 “60th Anniversary Hits Tour.” The concerts with his band mark his first U.S. run since 2020. The legend had planned U.S. dates with his Guess Who bandmate Randy Bachman but they were cancelled due to the pandemic, though the pair performed a few reunion shows in their native Canada in 2022. The original announcement of Cummings’ 2024 tour arrived on March 5. A presale for the new show begins April 30 at 10 a.m. local time, using the code SIXTY. The general on-sale begins May 3 at 10 a.m. local time here and at his website.

The tour announcement noted that A Few Good Moments, Cummings’ first studio album since 2008, will be released later this year. More details on the album are coming soon. Cummings notes, “Get ready, America! This fall, my band and I are hitting the road for the first leg of our U.S. tour! It’s been far too long, but we’re finally bringing the music straight to your doorstep. Join us at a venue near you where we’ll be performing my hits from the original The Guess Who and my solo career from over the past 60 years!”

From the announcement: In 1964, a 16-year-old Cummings released two singles as a member of the Deverons. Two years later, he joined The Guess Who. It was with the original The Guess Who that Cummings’ signature vocals, along with his songwriting and keyboard prowess would fuel massively big hits around the world including “These Eyes,” “No Time,” “Laughing” and their biggest hit “American Woman,” the latter topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks in 1970. When the band broke up in 1975 Cummings would find solo success with “Stand Tall,” an international smash which spent 21 weeks on the Hot 100 topping out at #10. He turned 76 on December 31, 2023.

Bachman is presenting a BTO tour with his son, Tal, with various dates throughout the year.

    The 60 years jives with Burton Cummings, then 16, joining The Deverons in 1964. The following year, he sang lead on both sides of their first single—a cover of Blue Is The Night
    and Cummings composed She’s Your Lover.

    Cummings joined The Guess Who in early 1966, replacing original keyboardist Bob Ashley. He and rhythm guitarist Chad Allan shared lead vocals. Allan had sung lead a year earlier on the band’s North American hit cover of Shakin’ All Over.

    An album titled It’s Time ensued, but Allan left shortly after its spring ‘66 release. From that point on until going solo in late 1975, Bur was the voice of The Guess W
