Oooh, my love… my darlin’….
You know the tune and if you pictured the scene of Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze from “Ghost,” you’re not alone. If you’re ready for some blue eyed soul, see The Righteous Brothers concert at Horseshoe Casino’s Bluesville on Saturday, May 13.
Join Bill Medley and his new partner, Bucky Heard for a trip down memory of lane. You’ll hear all the hits featured in blockbuster movies: “Unchained Melody” from the movie “Ghost,” “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” from “Top Gun” and “Time Of My Life” from “Dirty Dancing.” Other notable Righteous Brothers hits include “Rock And Roll Heaven” and “Soul And Inspiration.”
The Righteous Brothers consisted of Bill Medley and the late Bobby Hatfield. The duo had their first hit, “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” in 1964. In 1965, the duo released their successful cover of “Unchained Melody,” a 1955 song originally sung by opera singer Todd Duncan. After taking a hiatus, Medley and Hatfield got back together and re-recorded a second version of “Unchained Melody” after the song’s success in 1990’s movie, “Ghost.” (Fun fact: The duo made history to have two versions of the same song in the Top 20 charts at the same time.)
The two toured throughout the ‘90s and 2000s until Hatfield’s death in 2003. In 2016, Medley revived the Righteous Brothers with singer Bucky Heard. The two have been touring since.
The Righteous Brothers have two Grammy nods: 1965’s “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” and 1991’s re-recording of “Unchained Melody.” They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
The Righteous Brothers show transports you back in time for a classic, old-school experience you won’t want to miss. Add this Tunica concert onto your bucket list if you haven’t already.
