DREXEL HILL, PA – January 25, 2018 – Darlene Love will perform a live Valentine Concert at Upper Darby Performing Arts Center on February 15. The star of the Academy Award®-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Darlene Love is an adored American musical icon. Rolling Stone Magazine proclaimed Ms. Love as one of the top 100 “greatest singers of all time.”
The performance on February 15 begins at 7:30 pm at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center located at 601 N. Lansdowne Avenue in Drexel Hill, PA. Tickets are $38 – $46. UDPAC members save $2. Tickets may be purchased online at www.udpac.org or by calling the box office at 610.622.1189.
Bob Pantano, the host of The Saturday Night Dance Party on Philadelphia’s WOGL, 98.1FM, will emcee the event.
For years Love made holiday guest appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman singing “Christmas, Baby Please Come Home” and appeared as a special guest throughout the last two decades during Bruce Springsteen tours.
Since the early ‘60s as part of Phil Spector’s “wall of sound” hit factory, and as the lead singer on “He’s a Rebel,” Darlene Love has done it all, from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease.
In the early years, Love’s background vocals behind The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right.
Audiences have the opportunity to experience the outstanding talent of Ms. Love whose voice has been a part of the American soundtrack for 50 years – along with her accomplished musicians and background singers – at the conveniently located Upper Darby Performing Arts Center in Drexel Hill.
