MERIDIAN, Miss.—The Righteous Brothers, performers of the most played song in U.S. radio history, will bring blue-eyed soul back to the MSU Riley Center on Tuesday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m.
Bill Medley, who co-founded the duo in 1963, will harmonize with a new singing partner. Auburn University grad Bucky Heard, a native of Dadeville, Alabama, will blend his tenor voice with Medley’s resonant baritone.
“Performing with Bill Medley is like getting your Ph.D. in show business,” Heard said. “He is more than a legend; he puts everything into every performance and really understands how to connect with an audience.”
The Righteous Brothers created some of the biggest hits of the 1960s and 70s, including “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven” and radio’s most played song ever, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.”
Tickets are $64 and $58 at the MSU Riley Center Box Office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets can be purchased online at www.msurileycenter.com or by calling 601-696-2200.
