THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS ARE BRINGING BACK THAT LOVIN’ FEELIN’ TO FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY
August 24th, 2021 – INDIO, CA – One of the most successful duos in pop music history, the Righteous Brothers, are bringing that lovin’ feelin’ back to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino’s Special Events Center on Friday, February 11th. Tickets ($69, $59, $49, and $29) go on sale THIS Friday, August 27th at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via phone (800) 827-2946 and online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.
With a string of chart-topping hits including the most-played song in radio history (“You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ ”), the Righteous Brothers have left an indelible mark on the pop music landscape. The original innovators of blue-eyed soul have been twice nominated for a Grammy Award and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
Founding member Bill Medley is truly one of the most iconic figures in American music. His instantly recognizable baritone has anchored some of the biggest recordings of all time, and he holds the distinction of winning a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and an American Music Award. In 1963, he and fellow vocalist Bobby Hatfield opened for both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones on their first U.S. tours.
Following the success of “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” the Righteous Brothers released a string of hits including “Soul & Inspiration” and “Unchained Melody.” However, by 1968 the duo had agreed to part ways in order to pursue solo careers. Medley soon scored a pair of top-10 hits with “Peace, Brother, Peace” and “Brown-Eyed Woman.” In 1974, Medley and Hatfield reunited for the hit single “Rock and Roll Heaven.” In 1987, medley released a chart-topping duet with Jennifer Warnes, “The Time of My Life”, from the movie Dirty Dancing, which went on to sell over 32 million copies.
After Hatfield’s death in 2003, Medley continued to play to sold-out crowds around the world but fans urged 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 says. “I found the right guy to help me recreate the magic.”
Heard had garnered a reputation as a gutsy rock ’n’ roll singer with an incredible vocal range, having previously shared the stage with legends like Andy Williams and Glen Campbell. Together as the Righteous Brothers, they’re sure to give the audience at Fantasy Springs a show they will never forget.
Tickets for the Righteous Brothers ($69, $59, $49, and $29) go on sale this Friday, August 27th at 10 a.m. For more information, please visit www.FantasySpringsResort.com.
