Music fans have been enjoying the hits of the sixties and seventies since the Summer of Love and beyond. They get to relive those moments on the renowned Happy Together Tour 2018, which is going on its 9th consecutive year. This summer, the Happy Together Tour returns with six headline artists who delivered the biggest hits of the era: The Turtles, Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Association, Mark Lindsay, former Lead Singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, and The Cowsills.
The Turtles continue to be the signature headliners of the Happy Together Tour.

Dante’s youthful sound is best known on hits such as “Sugar, Sugar” and “Jingle Jangle,” which makes him the perfect understudy for The Turtles’ chart stoppers.’
