Corey Feldman. Actor in some of the best 80s movies (The Fox and the Hound, The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, The ‘Burbs, License to Drive), one half of the teen magazine-staple duo “the Coreys” (R.I.P. Corey Haim), and loyal friend to Michael Jackson.
But what’s he doing in 2017?
Short answer: music.
Longer answer: Embarking on a 34-stop tour called “Corey’s Heavenly Tour: Angelic 2 The U.S.” that is making its way to Fresno on Friday, October 13.
If you only know Feldman from his acting career, his appearances on reality shows, or that weird Michael Jackson friendship, you might be surprised to learn Angelic 2 the Core, the impetus for this tour, is Feldman’s fifth album. It’s a double LP dedicated to both Haim and Jackson.
Feldman’s music is described as “dance pop.” He got a lot of attention for it after an appearance on The Today Show last year went viral (not for the quality of the music, unfortunately). A similarly strange follow-up appearance on the show also got a lot of attention, which, you know: whatever. Feldman seems like he’s having fun. After working his ass off as a child in a rough, rough industry, I’d say he’s earned it.
I think if you go to this show, you’re probably in for a fun night, whether you’re there for spectacle, for love of 80s cinema, or out of sheer curiosity.
To get a taste of what Feldman is bringing to Fresno (including the women he bizarrely calls his “angels”), check out the video below for a song called “Duh.”

I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
