With a string of #1 classics, including “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’”—the most played song in radio history—the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield has topped the charts over four decades. After Bobby’s death in 2003, Bill Medley continued to perform to sold-out crowds around the world, but fans and friends pleaded with him to keep The Righteous Brothers alive. Says Medley, “No one could ever take Bobby’s place, but when I caught Bucky Heard’s show it all came together—I found the right guy to help me recreate the magic.” The concert experience still features their biggest hits—”Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven,” Medley’s Grammy-winning Dirty Dancing theme, “The Time of My Life,” and much more!
The Bill Medley and Bucky Heard pairing came as something of a happy accident. Medley says it just seemed right. “I’d been friends with Bucky for years, but when I caught his show, he just killed me! The next day it hit me—that’s the guy, someone I could sing hard with, laugh hard with, love and respect—on and off stage. He fits The Righteous Brothers live performance show perfectly. And, we’ve even recorded some new material together; I’m really excited!”
