Sarasota, FL: Dick Fox’s Golden Boys features three of the most popular teen idols of the late 50s and early 60s--Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell! The Golden Boys spotlight 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) along with tributes to the material of Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson and more, Sun. Feb. 26, 2012 @ 7:00 PM.

Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell, performing together as The Golden Boys in packed venues throughout the country since 1985, unites three exciting performers who emerged from the same South Philadelphia neighborhood at the same time and went on to become world renowned personalities. Countless TV appearances including a Golden Boys PBS special have brought on a vast audience of fans. Highlights of the fun-filled show include a segment of rare footage from the Bandstand era and a dance contest that engages audience participation.

An overnight singing sensation, and film star with over 30 films to his credit, Fabian Forte was actually discovered at the age of 14 sitting on his front steps in Philly. By the time he was 18, he had recorded dozens of hit singles, eight albums and earned gold records for “Turn Me Loose,” and “Tiger,” and a gold album for “The Fabulous Fabian.” One of America’s most popular entertainers, Frankie Avalon went from 50s teen idol to international star with smash hits like “Venus,” one of the best selling hits of the era. In addition to his popularity as a top recording artist, Frankie became a motion picture star, appearing in movies like The Alamo and Grease. From his debut in the late 50s as a rock & roll teen idol with tunes like “We Got Love,” and “Forget Him,” to starring roles in hit films like Bye, Bye, Birdie, plays like West Side Story, as well as countless network television appearances on shows like Ed Sullivan, Red Skelton Show and American Bandstand, it’s easy to see that Bobby Rydell’s career encompasses every area of the entertainment world. With resumes like these, this fabulous trifecta is sure to put on a great show.

Ticket prices range from $30-$80. For more information and to buy tickets, contact the Van Wezel Box office at (941) 953-3368 or log onto Sponsored by Sarasota Bay Rotary Club.
