From a press release:

2020 will mark the 11th year of the highly successful, hit-filled summer package Happy Together. Delighting audiences for a decade, this touring sensation that has crisscrossed the nation returns next summer with a show full of chart-topping hits from the 1960s and ’70s – 59 Billboard Top 40 smashes to be precise.

The tour is once again headlined by The Turtles, who also act as musical hosts for the evening. Supporting them will be Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night), The Association, Mark Lindsay (Paul Revere & The Raiders), The Vogues, and The Cowsills.

The Happy Together Tour returns to Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 8 p.m., this time with new additions Mark Lindsay and The Vogues.

Tickets, which are $46 for regular reserved seating and $53 for premium reserved seating, go on sale this Friday, Oct. 25 at 10 p.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

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-hit, “Sugar Sugar.”

Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, returns to the tour for 2020, bringing with him his outstanding lead vocals on such global hits as “Joy to the World,” “One,” “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” “Black & White,” “Shambala,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” Easy to Be Hard,” “Eli’s Coming,” and more. Three Dog Night scored an impressive 21 Top 40 singles and 12 consecutive gold albums in the late ’60s/early ’70s.

Also returning to the tour for 2020 is The Association, who enjoyed massive radio success in the ’60s with such No. 1 hits as “Cherish,” “Windy,” “Never My Love” and “Along Comes Mary.” This iconic vocal group was a staple on AM radio in the 1960s.

Joining Happy Together will be Mark Lindsay, former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders. Lindsay and his high-kicking stage persona will be performing Raiders’ hits as well as solo gems such as “Kicks,” “Hungry,” “Good Thing,” “Arizona,” and “Indian Reservation.” Lindsay’s songs appear in the recent Quentin Tarantino blockbuster “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Brand new to the Happy Together touring family are The Vogues. Also known for their harmony-driven pop sound, The Vogues 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.”

Rounding out the bill are The Cowsills, the harmonious family act (two brothers and a sister) that inspired the smash hit television show “The Patridge Family.” They 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.
