2020 will mark the eleventh year of the highly-successful, hit-filled Happy Together Tour. The touring sensation, which has criss-crossed the nation delighting audiences for a decade, returns with a show full of chart-topping hits from the 1960s and 1970s that include 59 Billboard Top 40 songs. In addition to The Turtles, audiences can expect music from Chuck Negron, from Three Dog Night; The Association; Mark Lindsay, from Paul Revere & The Raiders; The Vogues; and The Cowsills.
The Turtles are best known for their harmony-heavy California pop sound. With hits such as “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “You Showed Me,” and the title of the tour, “Happy Together,” the band ruled the airwaves in the late 1960s.

Also returning to the tour for 2020 is The Association, who enjoyed massive radio success in the ‘60s with such number one hits as “Cherish,” “Windy,” “Never My Love,” and “Along Comes Mary.” This iconic vocal group was a staple on AM radio in the 1960s.
