Dion at the United Palace Theater

I digged into my tape collection and found a cassette of Dion's Greatest Hits. We played as we ate dinner before we left for the concert. The ticket said the show was to start at 7:30 and it began at that time promptly. Dion sang a few covers and some of his hits of the 1960s that we used to hear on WCBS-FM. He played:
  • Summertime Blues
  • Rave on
  • Shake Rattle and Roll
  • Ruby Baby
  • The Wanderer
  • Runaround Sue

I remember back in 1987 we saw Dion at the WCBS-FM 15th Anniversary concert at the Radio City Music Hall. At that concert people were dancing in the aisle as she sang Runaround Sue. Below is a video of Dion singing it with the Belmonts. Facebook readers can see it at . He told the audience that he grew up on Belmont Avenue in the Bronx, walking distance from the theater.
