The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts will travel back in time to a night of classic oldies performed by The Platters, a group best known for hits such as, “Only You” and “Twilight Time,” on Thursday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $20.
The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. They have been singing together since the early 1950s. They were the first rock and roll group to have a Top Ten album in America, have sold well over 89 million records, and have performed in over 91 countries. They have amassed an impressive 230 awards to their credit, have appeared in 27 movies, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. Their distinctive sound takes audiences back to a simpler time and fills the air with romance. Their smooth, harmony-rich performances deliver adult ballads that demonstrate perfectly why The Platters continue to be a global sensation.
Opening for The Platters will be The Sock Hops, an oldies group that specializes in four-part harmonies of the most popular tunes from the ’50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. They have had the privilege of opening for artists such as The Temptations, Frankie Avalon, and Paul Revere and The Raiders.
