Righteous Brothers at Orleans

Feb 11, 2003 6:12 AM

The legendary Righteous Brothers, whose Blue-Eyed Soul has thrilled audiences for four decades, will perform at The Orleans Showroom, Tuesday through Feb. 23 (dark Mondays).

Show times are 8 p.m. Tickets are $39.95 to $59.95.

Together and as solo artists, Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield have reached generations of fans with their unmistakable heartfelt vocal style.

From their 1965 chart-topping success with "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling" to the 1990s surprise rediscovery of "Unchained Melody," the Righteous Brothers have endured and thrived as legendary talents.

Medley and Hatfield were invited to perform at President Clinton’s Georgetown University Reunion last year, and they have been acknowledged by artists like Billy Joel and Bruce Springfield, who both have thanked the Righteous Brothers for their timeless inspiration.

"Reunion" is their latest record release. The album brings the Brothers together again for a collection of newly-recorded songs. Such classics as "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling," "You’re My Soul and Inspiration," "Ebb Tide" and an updated rendition of "Rock and Roll Heaven" are included in this impressive collection.

"Reunion" appears in the wake of the Righteous Brothers’ surprise comeback as Top 40 hitmakers. "Unchained Melody" featured in the film, Ghost, became a platinum single in early 1991, when the duo’s newly recorded version sold over one million copies. The song also earned them a Grammy nomination in the category of "Best Pop Performance by A duo or Group with Vocal."
