Lennon Sisters to Play Drury Lane Theatre, 2/10-11
Iconic American vocal group THE LENNON SISTERS will perform two concerts at Oakbrook's Drury Lane Theatre on Monday, February 10 at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, February 11 at 1:30 p.m. For over 50 years, THE LENNON SISTERS achieved commercial success and charmed the nation with their sweet-voiced harmonies.
Based in Branson, Mo., THE LENNON SISTERS were dubbed "America's Sweethearts of Song" after a well-received debut on the Lawrence Welk Christmas special in 1955. With their natural vocal talents, striking looks and strong family values, the sisters charmed their way into millions of American homes as mainstays on the Lawrence Welk show. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the sisters became a national phenomenon, making personal appearances in every major U.S. city, singing for seven U.S. presidents, and inspiring a line of souvenir items that included coloring books, paper dolls and TV trays. While most of the sisters' fame was based on their live appearances, they also recorded several studio albums, which featured their interpretations of popular American standards. Their hits included "Tonight You Belong to Me" and "Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)."
In the 1980s, THE LENNON SISTERS published a memoir titled "Same Song, Separate Voices." The book detailed their career accomplishments and the personal challenges they faced after their father's death. The book sparked a slew of television appearances and further contributed to the sisters' fame. In 1987, THE LENNON SISTERS were awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, physically cementing their popularity. Now, the sisters continue to perform live at performing arts centers across the nation.
THE LENNON SISTERS will perform on Monday, February 10 at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, February 11 at 1:30 p.m. Single tickets are $65. Show and meal tickets are $80.
