Frankie Avalon with Fabian and Bobby Rydell

Three of the most popular teen idols of the late ‘50s and ‘60s add up to a live concert smash for audiences of all generations! Fabian, along with Frankie Avalon and Bobby Rydell, have been united by producer Dick Fox as the Golden Boys, seen on stage and in a PBS special. Golden Boys spotlights each of the singers and their greatest hits: “Turn Me Loose,” “Tiger” and “I’m a Man” (Fabian); “Venus,” “De De Dinah” and “Bobby Sox to Stockings” (Avalon); and “Volare,” “Wild One” and “Kissin’ Time” (Rydell). The three stars combine their talents on several songs and perform a tribute to the music of Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson and Bill Haley.

Frankie Avalon made the transition from teenage idol to mature pro during a career that spans three generations of music, TV and movies. As a youth, he started out as a trumpeter and seized every opportunity to enter and win local amateur contests. His first single, “De De Dinah,” was a chart-topper and his recording of “Venus” was one of the biggest-selling hits of the era.

Fabian Forte was discovered at 14 in his Philadelphia hometown, never dreaming that he’d produce dozens of successful singles and eight albums, including The Fabulous Fabian. Fabian makes frequent appearances in TV and film and for the past three years has hosted Fabian’s Celebrity Golf Tournament, which benefits veterans’ causes.

Bobby Rydell made his debut in the late ‘50s as a rock’n’roller seen in movies like Bye Bye Birdie and musicals such as West Side Story. He was a semi-regular on The Red Skelton Show and American Bandstand. Rydell’s recording career produced 34 Top 40 tracks – including the Jersey-centric “Palisades Park” – which places him in the top five of single artists from his era.
