March 23 - Chubby Checker & the Wildcats
253 5th Ave. N, St. Petersburg, FL
Celebrate the 55th Anniversary of the Twist!
The Palladium goes twisting into the 21st Century when Chubby Checker arrives with his band, the Wildcats. Chubby’s seminal recording of “The Twist” climbed to No. 1 on two separate occasions (in 1960 and again in ’62). “The Twist” spawned a massive dance craze and thrust Chubby Checker into the national spotlight. In 2008, Chubby’s “The Twist” was named the biggest chart hit of all time by Billboard magazine.
