The Best Of
The 60s, 70s and 80s – Live!
The best music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, blended with rich multimedia screens, special effects, and elaborate costuming. This fast-paced, high-energy show will take you back to the decades that brought us the best in American popular music – Journey, Elton John, Whitney Houston, Boston, Led Zeppelin and The Temptations – just to name a few! We guarantee you won’t see anything like this on the Grand Strand! This season, among other changes, Gilmore adds a new medley featuring the music of Woodstock.
The Original and Still the Standard
The impressive variety of live music shows in Myrtle Beach can be traced back to one man, Calvin Gilmore, and his singular vision that first-rate entertainment could thrive along the Grand Strand. Calvin Gilmore was the first to produce live theater in Myrtle Beach and the only show in the area for 7 years. When Calvin Gilmore opened the theater in 1986, the idea of a variety show was unheard of. Several years and many successes later, a number of corporations have followed Gilmore’s model and opened theaters of their own. Now in its 32nd season, the critically acclaimed Carolina Opry boasts over 9,000 performances and has been running longer than any show in Broadway history. Calvin Gilmore¹s successes in the area of theater have put Myrtle Beach on the map as an entertainment destination and brought a national spotlight to the Grand Strand.
