Our 7th Annual, pre-Father’s Day doo wop event is a tradition at the Beacon. Throughout the years, loyal patrons have requested many of the original artists of the era, and we were able to fulfill those requests. Except for one. Until now. One name says it all….Dion.
Headlining, will be the “King of the New York Streets”, who has been our #1 requested artist for good reason with scores of #1 hits and dozens of hit albums. A very rare occasion, this is the first time in over a decade that Dion has performed in a Rock ‘n Roll extravaganza in NYC!
Dion is revered by such luminaries as Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Billy Joel and the late, great Lou Reed to name just a few. Not only timeless, but he is the embodiment of rock and roll and its history. Hall of Famer, Dion, will do a full concert encompassing the entire second half of the show.
He will be supported by a stellar cast befitting this special concert, Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductees all: Charlie Thomas’ Drifters, Shirley Alston-Reeves, original lead singer of The Shirelles, the Soul Stirrers featuring Willie Rogers with a tribute to Sam Cooke plus acappella and the Blue Suede Orchestra.*
