American legends live on stage in Manchester

13 Mar 2014

4th July is still a long way off but we’ve never needed an excuse to celebrate all things American here at #GoodTimes HQ.

From LA’s cult radio station Indie 103.1 and Sky Atlantic’s compulsive True Detective to Manchester’s very own US themed bowling alley / diner All Star Lanes (post-show haunt of choice for Drake and Rihanna following the rapper’s sold-out shows earlier this week) we just love all the great entertainment we get from across the pond. And in 2014, we are very proud to welcome some of the greatest entertainers, musicians, singers and songwriters the good ol’ US of A to our stage here in Manchester.

From Detroit, Motown legends Four Tops and The Temptations will be joined by very special guests The Platters and Freda Payne. Expect all the hits including Reach Out (I’ll Be There), My Girl, Only You and Band Of Gold.

Hailed as one of the greatest male vocalists of our time, Texan Johnny Mathis returns next month to showcase his greatest hits A Certain Smile, Twelfth Of Never, Winter Wonderland and I’m Stone In Love With You.

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “the showman of our generation”, New York City’s Barry Manilow returns to Manchester to showcase the classic MandyCopacabanaFriendsCould It Be Magic, Can’t Smile Without You and I Write the Songs.

Salt Lake City’s most famous sons The Osmonds top the bill on this summer’s Once In A Lifetime – The Final Tour. For over five decades The Osmonds have been entertaining sold out crowds across the world with their unforgettable hits One Bad Apple, Down By The Lazy River, Let Me In, The Proud One, Love Me For A Reason and Crazy Horses.

Performing songs from her country back catalogue - including 9 to 5, Here You Come Again, Jolene and the classic I Will Always Love You - Tennessee’s legendary singer, songwriter and actress Dolly Parton returns for the first time since 2011’s spectacular thigh-slapping show.

LA quartet Eagles bring their History of the Eagles tour to Manchester this summer. Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit will be performing the classic hits Hotel California, Take It Easy and Life In the Fast Lane alongside tracks from their critically-acclaimed top-selling documentary History of the Eagles.

Rounding off the year we welcome back Boston’s James Taylor in September as he showcases tracks from his as-yet-untitled latest album alongside the hits Fire And Rain, How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), Something In The Way She Moves and You’ve Got A Friend.
