‘Million Dollar Quartet’ Brings Legendary Sounds to Binghamton
My Dad loves music as much as I do. I guess that’s where I get it from. It just so happens that the Million Dollar Quartet made this year’s Father’s Day a little easier for me as they will be hitting the Binghamton Forum Theater Sunday. Easy gift and thank me later.
Million Dollar Quartet is the Tony award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time.
On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians were gathered together by Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock ’n’ Roll” at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations featuring timeless hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Matchbox,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog” and more.
Tickets are still available for Sunday’s 2 shows at the Forum Theater at 3 and 7:30pm. I can almost guarantee a thrilling night of music and history that includes some unforgettable moments with the greatest musical icons in popular music and some tunes that are etched in rock and country music songbooks forever.
