The British Invasion Tour
- Peter Asher: As part of Brit-pop duo Peter and David, Asher sugary vocals turned “A World Without Love” into a transatlantic #1 hit
- Denny Laine After singing lead on the very first Moody Blues hit (“Go Now”), the crooning bassist found his wings as a vital member of Paul McCartney’s Wings
- Chad & Jeremy: Thanks to this folk duo’s 1964 hit “A Summer Song,” summers are no longer cold and depressing and Rushmore is a better movie

As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
