  • This is a test event for December 15th.
  • This is a test event for November 30th.
  • Come and celebrate the historic Lyric Theatre's 12th anniversary of its 2010 reopening with a special anniversary concert by the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performers THE DRIFTERS! Let the music move your soul as you shake, rattle, and roll to hit after hit, from "Up On The Roof" to "Under The Boardwalk."

    The Drifters, one of Rock & Roll’s founding vocal groups, is once again touring the U.S. under the auspices of their original management team. From their inception in the early 1950s and up until recently The Drifters had a symbiotic relationship with Rock & Roll legend George Treadwell, who's discovered and managed such famous artists as Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughn, and Nina Simone. The Treadwell Family was there when the original Drifters formed and was responsible for guiding their career through 20 years of uninterrupted hits that have made them the second most successful recording artist of all time, according to Billboard Magazine.
