For more than 50 years, singer Darlene Love has been making rock and roll’s world go ‘round. In the early 1960s, she was part of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound for “He’s a Rebel,” doing backing (as well as uncredited lead) vocals for “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby,” and scores of other hits. With the 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom, she became the best-known unknown in rock history. Backed by the Stanford Symphony Orchestra for selections, as well as her own band, Love will fill the house with nostalgia and her timeless, soaring voice.
