UPDATE: Due to a recent illness, Bobby Rydell will not be able to perform as part of The Golden Boys concert on August 3. Frankie Avalon and Fabian will be joined by 60s favorite Lou Christie, known for such hits as his 1966 number one smash "Lightning Strikes" as well as "Two Faces Have I" and "I'm Gonna Make You Mine."

We look forward to a memorable evening with Lou Christie's addition as part of The Golden Boys.
They were the original American idols of the 1950s – now sounding better than ever 60 years later!
Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell performing together as The Golden Boys in packed venues throughout the country since 1985, has been called "one of the most exciting acts in show business."
The show unites three exciting performers who emerged from the same South Philadelphia neighborhood at the same time, and went on to become world renown personalities.
Featuring three of the most popular teen idols of the late 50's and early 60's, The Golden boys have proved to be an overwhelming live concert success. Countless television appearances, a special performance for the President of the United States and a Golden Boys PBS special have brought on a vast audience of fans, not only from the fun generation, but all generations.
The Golden Boys spotlights each of the performers and their all time greatest hits, "Venus", "De De Dinah" and "Bobby Sox to Stockings" (AVALON); "Volare", "Wild One" and "Kissin Time" (RYDELL); "Turn Me Loose", "Tiger" and "I'm A Man" (FABIAN). The three stars combine their talents on several songs and perform a tribute to the material of Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson and Bill Haley.
Other highlights in the fun-filled show include a segment of rare footage from the Bandstand era and a dance contest that engages audience participation.
The idea to unite the three stars as The Golden Boys originated with veteran producer Dick Fox who has achieved great success with shows featuring the great artists of the 50's and 60's. "I wanted to produce a show that had never been done before... a show that had never been seen," says Fox. Ironically, these three stars, who grew up within three blocks of each other, knew each other, and had major hit records at the same time, had never performed together prior to The Golden Boys.
