Fabian, Frankie Avalon and Bobby Rydell -- the original teen idols from the 50s and 60s -- sing their biggest hits as well as tributes to contemporaries such as Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and Ricky Nelson when The Golden Boys comes to MPAC Tuesday, July 10 at 8 pm. Tickets are $69-$99 .

The Golden Boys spotlights each of the performers and their All Time greatest hits: "Turn Me Loose", "Tiger", "I'm A Man" (Fabian); "Venus", "De De Dinah", "Bobby Sox to Stockings" (Avalon); "Volare", "Wild One", "Kissin' Time" (Rydell). The three stars combine their talents on several songs and perform a tribute to the material of Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson and Bill Hailey.

Baby Boomers do a lot of reminiscing about everything from "Venus" to "Bobby Sox to Stockings" when Frankie Avalon takes the stage. He made the transition from "Teen-age Idol" to mature professional, and has a career that now spans three generations of music, television and motion pictures. As a youth, he started out as a trumpet player. He seized every opportunity to enter local amateur contests and won a string of them. His first single "De De Dinah" became a smash hit, and his recording of "Venus" was one of the biggest selling hits of the era.

Fabian Forte was discovered at the young age of 14 sitting on his front steps in Philadelphia. Little did he realize that would change to dozens of hit singles, eight albums and earned gold records for "Turn Me Loose" and "Tiger", and a gold album for "The Fabulous Fabian." In addition to his busy schedule touring with the Golden Boys, Fabian makes frequent appearances in television and feature film productions.

Bobby Rydell made his debut in the late 50s as a rock and roll teen idol starring in movie roles such as "Bye Bye Birdie," and plays such as West Side Story. He was a semi-regular on the Red Skelton Show and American Bandstand. His recording career earned him 34 Top 40 records, which puts him in the top 5 of all single artists from his era. Bobby's hits include the million selling singles, "Volare," "Wild One," "We Got Love" and "Forget Him."

Andrew Dice Clay, one of America's most controversial and outrageous comics, comes to MPAC Thursday, July 12 at 8 pm. Tickets for this adults-only performance are $39-$79.

When he released his debut album, Dice, the parental advisory label simply read "Warning: This album is offensive." Clay's rise to fame was nothing less than meteoric; he became the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row and was the only performer ever "Banned For Life from MTV."

Over the last few years, Clay's career has experienced a resurgence, most notably when he starred to great critical acclaim alongside Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, his recurring role on the final season of Entourage and Martin Scorsese's Vinyl. His other notable TV credit is The Celebrity Apprentice, where he is proud to have been the first celebrity thrown off the show. His next big film is A Star Is Born.
