1964 Caravan of Stars Summer - Part Two



In the latter portion of the summer of 1964, Dick Clark lured former teen idol Fabian to MC a leg of the Caravan of Stars.  Fabian, now 21, had retired from performing to focus on a movie career.  He did interviews to promote the tour and MC'd each show but he did not sing.  The line-up of this leg of the tour, covering 36 cities, was similar to the previous shows, headlining Gene Pitney.  However, this time around the Coasters, the Kasuals, and George McCannon are dropped from the tour.  Added to the talent were the Premiers, the Jelly Beans, Bobby Freeman and the Liverpools.
