      The year was 1985 – Fans came out in droves that year to see the “Happy Together” Tour, which featured a handful of immensely popular music groups that helped define the music of the previous two decades including The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, The Grass Roots, The Buckinghams, The Mamas & Papas and Gary Lewis & The Playboys. Lasting eight months, it would consistently be one of the top grossing tours of the year.



      Fast forward twenty-five years to 2010 – the “Happy Together” Tour is back! It’s the 25th Anniversary of the greatest pop rock of the sixties and it promises to bring plenty of joy to the music masses. The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie will once again be joined by The Grass Roots featuring Rob Grill, The Buckinghams, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz and Mark Lindsay former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders. Music fans would certainly be hard-pressed to find a tour this summer filled with more hits, especially those sung by the original singers.



      In 1966, hot on the heels of their new NBC television show, The Monkees would release a self-titled debut album that would top the U. S. charts for thirteen consecutive weeks and sell an overwhelming 3.2 million copies in just three months. The single “Last Train to Clarksville,” from the album would be their first #1 hit. Their second #1 hit came quickly with “I’m A Believer.” The band would continue to put out numerous hits such as “(I’m Not Your) Steppin Stone” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday” among others.



      “Happy Together” by The Turtles hit #1 on the charts in 1967 and remains a staple on classic rock radio to this day. It’s just one of their 9 Top 40 hits, which include such popular songs as “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “Elenore,” “You Showed Me,” and “It Ain’t Me Babe.”



      The Grass Roots burst upon the sceen on ’67 and would not only amass over a dozen hits, but go on to perform in front of an estimated 600,000 people in Washington D. C. on July 4, 1982 setting an all-time attendance record for a concert performance consisting of just one act. Between 1967 and 1972 – thanks to numerous hits such as “Midnight Confessions,” “Let’s Live For Today,” “Sooner Or Later,” “I’d Wait A Million Years” and “Temptation Eyes,” the band would set a record for being on the Billboard charts for 307 consecutive weeks.



      “Indian Reservation” by Paul Revere & The Raiders hit #1 on the charts in 1971, selling over 4 million copies which made it the biggest selling single for Columbia Records for almost a decade. This massive hit followed quite a few that came before it from the band including “Kicks,” “Hungry,” “Just Like Me” and “Good Thing” (as well as the Mark Lindsay Top Ten hit, “Arizona,” from 1970).



      “King of a Drag” from The Buckinghams would also reach the pinnacle of chart success, yet mark just one of many popular hits from the band including “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Don’t You Care,” “Susan” and “Hey Baby (They’re Playing Our Song).” Their Success in 1967 would lead them to be named “The Most Listened To Band in America.”
