Tony Orlando will perform in Atlantic City, March 16.

In a show that is being billed as his final Atlantic City appearance — and that will take place six days before a show that is being described as his final concert, ever, March 22 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut — Tony Orlando will perform at The Superstar Theater at Resorts in Atlantic City, March 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com.

Orlando, 79, spent parts of his youth in Union City and Hasbrouck Heights and was inducted into The New Jersey Hall of Fame in October. He was most popular during the ’70s, when he worked with the backing vocalists Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson as Tony Orlando & Dawn.

Under the group name Dawn, Dawn featuring Tony Orlando, or Tony Orlando & Dawn, Orlando had six Top 10 hits from 1970 to 1975: “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times,” “Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose,” “Candida,” “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You)” and “Steppin’ Out (Gonna Boogie Tonight).”

According to a press release, Orlando has performed at Resorts numerous times since his first appearance there in 1983, and his handprints are “prominently displayed” outside the theater’s entrance.

“Tony’s relationship with Resorts is one we cherish greatly, and we look forward to being a part of this historic moment,” said Mark Giannantonio, president and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel, in a press release.
