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 2020, which is going on its 11th 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, The Association, Mark Lindsay (former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders), The Vogues, and The Cowsills.
The Turtles continue to be the signature headliners of the Happy Together Tour. As always, founding member and singer Mark Volman will bring his infamous antics to the stage, however, for medical reasons, this summer the voice of The Archies, Ron Dante will stand in for singer Howard Kaylan. 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.’
The Turtles have sold over 40 million records worldwide. Their hits include: “Happy Together” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “Elenore,” “It Ain’t Me Babe”, “You Showed Me” and many more.
Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night is back on the Happy Together Tour due to popular demand! He brings Three Dog Night’s biggest hits to the stage, including “Joy To The World,” “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” “Shambala,” “One”, “Easy To Be Hard” among others.
The Association, one of the most successful bands to come out of the 60’s, have sold millions of records, tapes, CDs and DVDs as well as earned a number of achievements including a Golden Globe nomination in 1970 for Best Original Song – “Goodbye Columbus.” Their hits “Along Comes Mary,” “Windy” and “Cherish” earned them a spot in the historic 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, as the first group to hit the stage.
Mark Lindsay (former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders), will sing a selection of his Top 10 hits including “Kicks,” “Hungry,” “Him or Me-What’s it Gonna Be,” “Good Thing” and the Platinum-certified classic #1 single “Indian Reservation”. Concurrent to the success of The Monkees, Mark starred in the daily television shows Where The Action Is and Happening. With a 50-year-long friendship, Micky & Mark will share the stage and their stories from 1967.
The Vogues created a sound. It was a fresh, original blend of vocal harmony that left an indelible mark in the world of popular music. Inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001, The Vogues remain one of the top vocal groups on the oldies scene today, even though their first hit, “You’re the One” was released over fifty years ago. Four gold records, two platinum albums, and fifty years later, The Vogues continue to attract sellout audiences at concerts and club appearances around the country. Their outstanding talent, stylish delivery and excellent choice of material, coupled with their vital, poised performance, makes this group one of the world’s top nostalgia acts.
The Cowsills have been dazzling crowds the last three years on the Happy Together Tour with their effervescent brand of contagious pop magic. Bob, Paul, and Susan Cowsill are a family singing group and the original inspiration for television’s, The Partridge Family. Best known for songs “The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “Hair,” “Indian Lake” and “Love American Style.” The Cowsills appeared on numerous TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
The Happy Together Tour began in 1984 with mainstays The Turtles. It started up again in 2010 with 2020 being its 11th consecutive year. The overwhelming response and love for the music has endured and The Happy Together Tour 2020 brings that magic back to fans, night after night!
