ANAHEIM

8pm

Pop Music

Until No Doubt and the Offspring put Orange County music back on the charts in the '90s, the Righteous Brothers were the county's most successful pop group ever, and their Phil Spector-produced hits remain among the most glorious creations of the rock era. Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield have performed on their home turf only sporadically in recent years, and often in benefit settings. So their appearance at the Sun Theatre will be a welcome chance to catch them in a formal concert.
