Medley nails a ‘Righteous’ gig

Concert to run at off-Strip showroom for 11 weeks

LAS VEGAS — Roughly three months after the death of his partner Bobby Hatfield, rocker Bill Medley has inked a deal with the Orleans Hotel & Casino.

Dubbed “Bill Medley Celebrates the Music of the Righteous Brothers,” the inaugural Las Vegas show dates will be March 17-21. Medley will perform at the off-Strip showroom for five days per week for 11 weeks.

The 80-minute concert will feature solely Righteous Brothers songs. Thanks to a live album the pair recorded last year, the show should sound much like the duo’s past work: “We’ll take his voice electronically and put it into this show,” Medley said.

Hatfield’s unexpected death brought the duo’s national tour to an end last Nov. 5. Medley said he’s hoping he can tour again.

“I am real proud of everything we did,” he said.
