Special Concert Featuring Legendary Trio Set for July 25
Nashville, Tenn. (June 22, 2020) â€”Â GRAMMYÂ® Award-winningÂ Larry,Â SteveÂ andÂ Rudy GatlinÂ will bring a specialÂ Gatlin BrothersÂ “Fan Favorites”Â live concert to the historicÂ Franklin TheatreÂ onÂ Saturday,Â July 25Â inÂ Franklin,Â TennesseeÂ atÂ 8:00 p.m./CT. The concert will be digitally streamed atÂ franklintheatre.com. Tickets will also be available for an intimate audience of 70. It will be the venue’s first live show since the pandemic shutdown. As for the Gatlins, theÂ show has been long in the making.
“I had this idea about 10 years ago when we did a live concert at Bristol Motor Speedway,” says Rudy. “The promoter told meÂ thousands of fans tuned in online and it gave me the idea forÂ Gatlin Brothers ‘Fan Favorites.'”
The brothers plan to perform various songs that they recorded over the course of their careerâ€” hit songs as well as cuts that were included on previous albums that arenâ€™t normally performed at a live Gatlin Brothers show.
“We’ll sing songsÂ that we don’t usually have time to do at our concerts, but often get requests for,” explains Rudy. “But we’ll be sure to sing ‘All the Gold in California’ just like The Oak Ridge Boys would never do a concert without ‘Elvira.'”
Tickets go on-saleÂ Friday,Â June 26Â atÂ 11:00 a.m./CT. Pricing: $56 for theatre seating and $20 for live streaming.
Patrons along with the theatre staff will be required to wear cloth face coverings while in the theatre and seating capacity will be limited to achieve social distancing safety measures.
