Johnny Mathis will be live in the Grande Exposition Hall at Silver Legacy on Friday, November 19, 2021. Don’t miss him on his 65 Years of Romance Tour!

Best-known for his supremely popular hits like “Chances Are,” “It’s Not For Me To Say,” and “Misty”, Johnny has recorded close to 80 albums, 6 Christmas albums, and has sold millions of records worldwide. During his extensive career he has had 3 songs inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame, achieved 50 Hits on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart, and ranks as the all-time #6 album artist in the history of Billboard’s pop album charts.  He has received 5 GRAMMY Nominations, and in 2003 was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.  His 1958 album “Johnny’s Greatest Hits” started the music industry tradition of “Greatest Hits” albums, which is noted in GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS for a nearly 10 year run on the BILLBOARD Top Albums Chart.

In addition to all this Johnny & his music have appeared in numerous films & TV shows, including The Tonight Show, Silver Linings Playbook, Family Ties, Criminal Minds, Gremlins, Mad Men, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, just to name a few.  In 2017 he released his 78th studio album titled “Johnny Mathis Sings The Great New American Songbook”, and debuted his 2 “lost” albums – “I Love My Lady” produced by Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards of the pivotal group CHIC; “The Island” with Sergio Mendes. He also recorded new musical collaborations with other artists up to & through 2020. Johnny continues to be Columbia Records longest signed recording artist, and to fans of all ages The Voice Of Christmas!

In spite of a very busy tour schedule & many charity events, Johnny still finds time to enjoy a little free time. He was an avid tennis player until the late 1960s, when a good friend turned him on to his now life-long love of golf. He plays golf almost every day when he’s not traveling, and has even hosted his own golf tournament, The Johnny Mathis Seniors PGA Classic. He is also quite the gourmet chef thanks to his parents, who taught him how to cook at an early age.

After 65 years as a Recording Artist, what’s next for Johnny? “I don’t think about retiring. I think about how I can keep singing for the rest of my life. I just have to pace myself.”
