Dick Fox’s Golden Boys: Frankie Avalon, Fabian & Lou Christie
Frankie Avalon, Fabian, and Lou Christie 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); “Lightnin’ Strikes”, “Rhapsody in the Rain”, and “I’m Gonna Make You Mine” (Christie); “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.
