One of the more popular annual outings of classic rock and ’60s pop, the Happy Together Tour, has put together an ambitious 2018 schedule with a top-notch lineup of stars who came into prominence in the ’60s. The tour is named, of course, for the Turtles’ big 1967 hit.
This year’s ninth tour will feature an understudy for the Turtles’ Howard Kaylan, who posted the following on his Facebook page on Jan. 12:
“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’.”
The rest of the lineup includes The Association, Chuck Negron (formerly of Three Dog Night), Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, Mark Lindsay (former lead singer of Paul Revere and the Raiders) and The Cowsills. Together, they represent dozens of Top 10 radio hits.
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” and “You Showed Me.”
Other Artists: Chuck Negron (formerly of Three Dog Night), Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Association, Mark Lindsay (former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders), The Cowsills
The Association is one of the most popular singing groups to have come out of the ’60s. They are best known for their #1 hits “Windy,” “Cherish” and “Never My Love,” as well as the Top 10 singles “Along Comes Mary” and “Everything That Touches You.”
In a span of two years, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap enjoyed five Top 10 singles including their 1967 debut, “Woman Woman,” as well as “Young Girl” and “Lady Willpower.”
Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, performs some of the group’s biggest hits including “Joy to the World,” “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” “Shambala,” “One” and “Easy To Be Hard.”
As lead singer for Paul Revere and the Raiders, Mark Lindsay scored hits with “Kicks,” “Just Like Me” and “Good Thing,” as well as solo success on “Arizona” and “Indian Reservation.”
The Cowsills have been part of the last few years of the tour. Bob, Paul and Susan Cowsill are a family singing group and the original inspiration for television’s The Partridge Family and are best known for the songs “The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “Hair,” “Indian Lake” and “Love American Style.”
As lead singer, Dante also enjoyed hits like “Bang-Shang-A-Lang” for the Archies and “Tracy” with the Cuff Links.
