Avalon Theatre announces April shows for former American Idols Studdard & Aiken

(Niagara Falls, ON) December 13, 2022 – He’s been the New Male Vocalist of the Year (2012), Top New Male Artist (2013), his hit song The Weekend was named in the BMI Country Awards Top-50 Songs (2017), and now Brantley Gilbert is coming to Niagara Falls’ new 5,000-seat theatre.

“The quality of the music acts at OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino continues to amaze me,” says Cathy Price, Vice President of Marketing at Niagara Casinos. “Gilbert is one of the biggest stars in country music whose edgy sound will also satisfy the rock n roller in you. He is an artist who has much to offer multiple musical tastes.”

Hailing from Jefferson, Georgia, Gilbert began his career performing at local venues before making it big with the help of his debut album, Modern Day Prodigal Son. It was the re-release of his second album Halfway to Heaven
that really helped his sound and fame take off. It peaked at No. 4 on the US Billboard 200. Gilbert subsequently released two more albums that gained critical and commercial success. Halfway to Heaven and Just as I am are both
certified platinum albums. His latest album So Help Me God features chart-climbing single Heaven By Then with Blake Shelton featuring Vince Gill.

Gilbert’s fans have always been treated to dynamic and fun shows. His stage demeanor has been called energetic, good-natured, and immensely audience friendly.

Speaking of energetic and good-natured people – and celebrating the 20th anniversary of their run together on American Idol – Ruben Studdard & Clay Aiken will share the Avalon Theatre stage and perform their chart-topping
hits in April for their Ruben Studdard & Clay Aiken: Twenty | The Tour. Studdard rose to fame as winner of the second season of American Idol. He also received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Superstar in 2003, while Aiken became the first Idol alum in history to have his first single debut No.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart This is the Night. Aiken also had his single certified platinum and album certified triple platinum.

“It is remarkable to just see one American Idol icon; we get to see two on one stage!” says Price. “Whether you are looking to see a country star or two singing legends, you can find amazing entertainment like this only at Fallsview Casino.”
