ABOUT THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS
The Righteous Brothers have a string of No. 1 classics, including the most played song in radio history, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.”, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield topped the charts for four decades. After Hatfield’s death in 2003, Medley continued to perform to sold-out crowds around the world, but fans and friends pleaded with him to keep The Righteous Brothers alive. “No one could ever take Bobby’s place, but when I caught Bucky Heard’s show it all came together,” Medley said in a news release. “I found the right guy to help me recreate the magic.”
The concert experience will feature their biggest hits – “Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven,” Medley’s Grammy-winning “Dirty Dancing” theme “The Time of My Life,” and more.
