Sun, Feb 17 at 1:00 PM @ Ruth Eckerd Hall
Hailed as one of the most exciting acts in show business, The Golden Boys starring Frankie Avalon, Fabian, and Bobby Rydell, return to Ruth Eckerd Hall! Frankie Avalon went from 50’s teen idol to a national and international star. His first song De De Dinah became a smash hit and his recording of Venus was one of the biggest selling hits of the era. His follow-up hits include Bobbysocks to Stockings, Just Ask Your Heart, and A Boy Without a Girl. With a series of performances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, Fabian became one of the top teen idols of the late 1950’s. He enjoyed great success with the hits Turn Me Loose, Hound Dog Man, and the million-selling single Tiger. Another American Bandstand alum is Bobby Rydell, who had million selling singles with Volare, Wild One, and We Got Love, and additional success with Swingin’ School, Kissin’ Time, and Forget Him. This show is sure to bring back many a teenage memory!
