Buffalo, NY (WBEN) -- Crooner Michael Bublé will play Buffalo's First Niagara Center on September 24th.
His new album, To Be Loved, just debuted at Number One on the Billboard Album Charts. It is his fourth straight Number One album.
Bublé was born in British Columbia, Canada, the son of a salmon fisherman. He spent his teenage summers on his dad's boat, doing the punishing physical work expected of him.
After winning the Canadian Youth Talent Search at age 18, he signed with a manager and played every kind of gig imaginable, big and small. But it wasn't until he was in his mid 20's that he was able to convince ace Canadian producer David Foster to take him on.
His first album was released in 2003, and his musical career also was boosted by acting gigs in movies such as Duets (2000) and on TV.
Although he hails from the Vancouver area, there will be a Buffalo Sabres hockey puck in his dressing room this fall. As part of his contract rider, Bublé requests "one local team hockey puck" at each stop of his tour.
