The hit-filled Happy Together Tour that has crisscrossed the country for more than a decade returns to the State Fair with a show full of chart-topping hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s – an undeniable 61 Billboard Top 40 smashes. The tour once again features The Turtles, who also act as musical hosts for the evening. The Turtles are joined by Little Anthony, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Vogues, The Classics IV 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 ‘60s. Ron Dante joins the lineup to delight with his own mega-hits “Sugar, Sugar” and “Tracy.”
With 60-plus years in show business and more than 50 million records sold worldwide, Little Anthony has a voice that is considered one of the greatest of all time. He performs some of the most iconic songs ever written, including “Goin’ Out of My Head,” “Hurts So Bad,” “Tears on My Pillow,” “I’m on the Outside (Looking In)” and “Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop.” Little Anthony was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2009.
Gary Puckett’s trademark voice belts out the hits that fans affectionately remember: “Young Girl,” “Over You,” “Woman, Woman,” “This Girl Is a Woman Now,” “Lady Willpower” and “Don’t Give in to Him,” to name just a few.
The Vogues, known for their harmony-driven soaring pop sound, had numerous Top 10 hits with singles such as “Five O’Clock World,” “You’re the One,” “My Special Angel” and “Turn Around, Look at Me,” among others.
With their southern soft-rock sound, The Classics IV are one of the most popular and influential pop groups of the ‘60s and ‘70s. They achieved phenomenal success with multiplatinum hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces” and “Everyday With You Girl.”
This harmonious singing family of two brothers and a sister, which inspired the smash ‘60s hit television show “The Partridge Family,” are sure to delight with their best-known songs “Hair,” “Indian Lake,” “The Rain, the Park & Other Things (I Love the Flower Girl)” and more.
