The Turtles, The Buckinghams, The Classics IV, The Cowsills, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap along with Chuck Negron from Three Dog Night embark on a journey to dozens of major cities across the United States to bring back the glory days of yesteryear.

Happy Together Tour Origins
The first tour took place in 1985 featuring The Turtles. However, it was not until 2010 that the tour would become an annual event. Each year, a number of '60s era bands joined The Turtles on stage. Past performances have included the talents of Ron Dante, one of the original Archies, who climbed the pop charts with "Sugar, Sugar." The group formed to represent the popular comic book gang. Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders fame also appeared to the delight of female audience members. Songs performed by Lindsay included the memorable band's hits, "Arizona," "Indian Reservation" and "Kicks." Upon Paul Revere's death in 2014, his son Jamie continues touring with the Raiders band who was popular for its comedic antics and Revolutionary War costumes.
