Sonny Turner, Former Lead Singer of The Platters, Returns to Suncoast Showroom April 7-8

Sonny Turner, Former Lead Singer of The Platters, Returns to Suncoast Showroom April 7-8 Legendary vocalist Sonny Turner, former lead singer of The Platters, brings his signature style back to the Suncoast Showroom April 7 and 8. 

Turner burst onto the national scene in 1959, when he was chosen from among 100 prospects to replace The Platters’ original lead singer, Tony Williams. Starting at the age of 19, Turner toured the world with The Platters and gained popularity with such hits as “I Love You 1000 Times,” “With This Ring,” and “Washed Ashore.” He also re-recorded the group’s major hits, including “Only You,” “The Great Pretender” and “The Magic Touch.”

In 1970, Turner left The Platters to pursue a solo career that brought him international fame. In doing so, he established his own fan base and following. Turner later lent his voice to such films as “Nutty Professor II” and “Hearts in Atlantis.”

In 2005, Turner received The Lifetime Excellence in Entertainment Award in Las Vegas. He was also inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame and The Doo-Wop Hall of Fame of America for his musical contributions to The Platters. Along with Herb Reed, bass singer and founder of The Platters, Turner is one of just two surviving members of one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. Turner continues to keep the music alive through concert appearances around the world.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available from $15.95, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Coast Casinos box office, by calling 702.636.7075 or visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
