The Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern is thrilled to welcome the illustrious Motown group The Platters for an exciting performance as a part of their 2018-2019 Main Stage Season. Tickets are on sale now and going quickly for the Sunday, October 14, 2018 matinee.
Formed in 1952, The Platters crashed through the music industry’s racial barriers and onto the rock n’ roll scene to become one of the century’s most important, famous vocal groups. Propelled by the success of their debut single, the romantic ballad “Only You (and You Alone),” the group went on to entertain America and the world for decades.
Their extensive soulful repertoire includes favorites such as “Enchanted,” “Magic Touch,” and No. 1 hits “My Prayer,” “Twilight Time,” and the incomparable “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.” The current lineup includes veteran performers of film, stage, and screen, Wayne Miller, Adele Galinda “DD” Grey Martin, Lance Bernard Bryant, and Kenny Williams. Today, The Platters continue to captivate audiences of all ages worldwide with great storytelling, soaring voices, and dazzling choreography.
Performing Arts Center Director Stacie McDaniel notes, “We could not be happier to get to share the joy of The Platters with audiences here in Statesboro, GA. The Motown style of music still speaks to so many and helps us relive such a storied moment in rock and roll history. Plus it’s just a great time! I would not be surprised to see the audience dancing in the aisles!”
