Juno award winning pianist Frank Mills brings his After the Dancer tour to Chilliwack on Nov. 10.

Montreal-born Mills will spend the evening sharing his not only his music, but all the stories that inspired it, challenged it, and resulted from its success.

His classic instrumental song Music Box Dancer catapulted him onto the international stage in the 70s after Ottawa radio personality Dave Watts gave it extensive airplay. It has since sold nearly six million copies in all of its various interpretations.

The unprecedented success of that song allowed Mills to compose all that came after it. This month, Mills releases a collection of his 13 most requested songs and heads out on the road to celebrate all the music that came ‘After the Dancer.’

The new album came about when Mills realized that he had many gems tucked away within his repertoire that had been eclipsed by the strength of Music Box Dancer.

“Though it may be that Music Box Dancer will be my epitaph, the songs that are dearest to me are the ones that I would like to be remembered for,” Mills noted.

The album was arranged and orchestrated by Jim Pirie and Eric Robertson, and assembled by Mills’ long-time producer Hayward Parrot.

Celebrate what’s happened After the Dancer with Frank Mills. The show takes place at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $58.80 and are available at the Centre Box Office or at 604-391-7469.
