The decade that brought waterbeds, leisure suits and pet rocks also spawned one of the most diverse periods in music history in the 20th Century.
More than a stage show, and much more than a concert, the ‘70s return — live and on stage.
The show is a total immersion into the pop culture of the period, including vintage TV commercials, retro dance numbers, period fashion, animated graphics of the era, rare historic newsreel footage ranging from Watergate to Apollo 13 to Saturday Night Fever and note-for-note live music renditions of the greatest hits of the decade.
With 30 songs from a soundtrack that united a generation, “This is the ‘70s” features the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Doobie Brothers, Peter Frampton, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, The Band, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Journey, Michael Jackson, Yes, Bee Gees, Boston, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Heart, The Guess Who, Badfinger and many more. Performed live with no pre-recorded samples, the two-hour show features the skill and versatility of eight seasoned performers.
The unique show design is the brainchild of Lyric Media president and producer/director Jim Duffy, a veteran documentary filmmaker, author and musician who has created programming for Discovery Networks and other national media outlets.
“I combined the two elements I love most: music and storytelling,” explained Duffy. “Just like our ‘This Is The ‘60s’ show, ‘This is the ’70s’ takes the audience on a journey — one that’s designed to entertain, educate and stimulate.”
“This is the ‘70s” will perform on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 29 at 2 and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $35 to $49; premium $55 and $59. There is a 10 percent discount on Sunday night single tickets.
Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888.
The Harris Center is at 10 College Parkway in Folsom.
