At The Shore Today: James Blunt at the Borgata

James Blunt

James Blunt at Borgata

Singer-songwriter James Blunt, 40, rose to prominence in 2004 with the release of his debut studio CD, "Back to Bedlam." The release sold more than 11 million copies worldwide and peaked at No. 2 in this country. Blunt headlines tonight at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

A native of Great Britain, Blunt has released four full-length studio CDs, the latest being "Moon Landing" in October. When Blunt toured last year to support that album, he was accompanied by two keyboard players, a drummer, a bassist and a lead guitarist. Blunt performed last month in Montreal. In concert, Blunt sang 22 songs including all his Billboard Hot 100 singles, "High," "1973," "Stay the Night," "Goodbye My Lover" and his biggest hit, the former No. 1 smash, "You're Beautiful."
