The 13th edition lineup of the popular tour of ’60s pop music acts, known as the Happy Together tour, has announced its 2023 dates and lineup. 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 2023 lineup: Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, Little Anthony, the Vogues, the Classics IV and The Cowsills. Together, they represent dozens of Top 10 radio hits. Watch them all perform in the opening night’s finale below.

The new edition begins in late May and continues into September. (See the dates below; we expect even more to be announced.)

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.”

Little Anthony led the vocal group the Imperials to their first hit, “Tears On My Pillow,” in 1958, and followed it with such singles as “Goin’ Out of My Head” and “Hurt So Bad.”

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

The Classics IV scored three top 5 singles within two years, “Spooky,” “Stormy” and “Traces.” Their frontman, Dennis Yost, died in 2018.

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.”

They released a well-received studio album, Rhythm of the World, in 2022.
