Happy Together Tour Resumes in 2022

Share This:

The 12th edition lineup of the popular tour of ’60s pop music acts, known as the Happy Together tour, has an extended run underway in 2022. The tour is named, of course, for the Turtles’ big hit that reached #1 on March 25, 1967.

The Turtles continue as the signature headliners, but with the voice of the Archies, Ron Dante, again joining Turtles founding member and singer Mark Volman. (Fellow Turtles founder, Howard Kaylan, hasn’t participated  for several years.)

The rest of the 2022 lineup: Gary Puckett & the Union GapThe Association, the Vogues, and The Cowsills. Together, they represent dozens of Top 10 radio hits. Watch them all perform in the opening night’s finale below.

Mark Lindsay – the longtime lead singer of Paul Revere & the Raiders – announced in 2021 that he would not be participating in 2021 or 2022, due to numerous ankle injuries. In addition, Chuck Negron (formerly of Three Dog Night) was expected to participate in 2022 but also bowed out due to concerns about a pre-existing lung condition in the era of Covid.

The new edition, began June 1 and continues through August. Many of the dates were originally scheduled all the way back to 2020.

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.”

Gary Puckett & the Union Gap enjoyed five Top 10 singles including their 1967 debut, “Woman Woman,” as well as “Young Girl” and “Lady Willpower.”

The Association returned to the lineup in 2021. 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.”

The Vogues scored such Top 10 singles as “Turn Around, Look at Me,” “You’re the One” and “Five O’Clock World.”

The Cowsills have been part of the last several 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.”

    It is maddening that Chuck negron is not a part of Three Dig Night, It isn’t Three Dog Night if there is only 2 of them!

      From what I read Chuck is willing to sing with Danny Hutton but there is no interest with Danny. Hopefully, Danny and Chuck can honor Corey Wells and do a tour one summer.

      Did anybody notice Gary Puckett replaced Chuck on this year billing for at least the first 3 shows of 2021? Does anybody know why?

        Chuck is taking a break this year but plans to be back for 2022. He announced it on a recent podcast interview with The Cowsills.

    Of course, the year the tour comes to my town, Erie, PA, Mark Lindsay won’t be on the bill! Not fair! Oh, well, hope you get to feeling better, Mark. Maybe I’ll get to see you in a future gig! Still love ya’, dude!

    I’ve loved this show for many years, and have gone to see a whole bunch of them, going way back now. Slowly but surely age and infirmity is taking its toll on the performers of this generation, to the point where they often have to put the show together with spit and wire, and just grab whoever is able to at least walk on stage. The biggest loss has been Howard Kaylan, that incredible voice of the Turtles, who hasn’t toured with the show for several years now. This year’s lineup has a few performers who can still thrill you — The Cowsills are marvelous, The Association still has their sound, and I’m sure Ron Dante does a credible job of filling in for Howard with the Turtles, as well as his own songs, but when you hear “Eleanor” you know it’s not THAT voice. The Classics IV, also don’t have THAT voice, which has long ago passed. The Vogues? Ehh, who knows? But I saw Gary Puckett years ago with this show, and he could no longer sing then. Don’t know when this video of him is from, but according to what I saw, he is no longer THAT guy. Chuck Negron really could pretty much pull off his songs, so that is a loss. And while best wishes go out to Happy Together Tour perennial stalwart Mark Lindsay, the truth is his vocals have long had no discernable character whatsoever. So, in truth, no big loss there, except if you’re in love with him, as many still are.

    Despite these problems, I still love this show, and have been grateful to the Turtles for bringing it back year after year. I’ve seen many great performances, but in later years, many not so great performances, and even some folks that just shouldn’t even have been on a stage at that point (Wayne Fontana most recently comes to mind). The truth is, you have to wonder how much longer they will be able to find folks who are physically able to do these tours, and can still sort of pull off what they’re famous for. Which is why I’ve kicked myself many times for the shows I didn’t go to that are forever lost (Jack Bruce being one). And why I now constantly remind myself to get out there if it’s something that does mean something to me, because you never know when it’s all going to be over — for you, or for them.

    My research shows that no member of the current Association plays woodwinds. When they sing “Windy”, does anyone play the flute or recorder, which Terry Kirkman used to play? Thanks

    I saw the Happy Together tour last night in Quakertown, PA (7-29-21). The show was excellent! You should go & see it! It’s about 90 minutes of outstanding music!

    Happy Together Tour in Louisville, KY on 8/24/2021 SNUBBED the Monarchs. Totally disrespected them by not mentioning that they opened up for them and it was their 60th anniversary.

    Hi Storm, Glad to hear Gary Puckett could still do it when you saw him. He must have had a cold or something at the show we saw. I guess no one wants to draw attention to it if fans haven’t noticed, but for those who do (and it was difficult not to) saying something about your condition that evening would be better than leaving fans thinking that you don’t have much voice left at all anymore.

    Saw them Thursday night August 25, 2022 in Des Moines. Gary Puckett is 80 years old next month and he still sounds great. All the rest of them are great too lots and lots of fun! I’ve seen them for five times with different people in the lineup and love it every time!
