Shoyn Tsayt! (It's about time) -- In his first Los Angeles concert performance in more than two years, Neil Sedaka will leave the audience "kveling" with a unique mix of favorites in two very different languages. The legendary singer/songwriter will appear at the prestigious Wilshire Theatre for two shows on Saturday December 4th and Sunday December 5th featuring songs from his latest CD "Brighton Beach Memories," a sentimental foray into traditional Yiddish music along with classic hits from his distinguished career spanning more than five decades. Inspired by the recent revival of the Yiddish language and culture, Sedaka has returned to the songs of his childhood in Brooklyn, recording and now performing his favorite Yiddish tunes with a traditional Klezmer band. The Los Angeles performance is the fourth in a series of sold out concerts including Carnegie Hall in New York, The Mann Center For Performing Arts in Philadelphia and Ravina Festival in Chicago.
