Step Back In Time
Posted on 04/20/2017
With singles like “I’m Into Something Good,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” and “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” in his repertoire, who better than Peter Noone to take us back to the 60s? State Theatre New Jersey is thrilled to offer you a chance to step back into the revolutionary era of Rock with Herman of the Herman’s Hermits from the Spring Sixties Spectacular on Saturday April 29, 2017 at 7pm.
Noone is far more than a singer; his skills vary from acting to songwriting. As a child, Noone attended Manchester School of Music and Drama all the while playing Stanley Fairclough in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street. However, his musical calling took the front seat when at 15, Noone gained international fame as “Herman,” the lead singer of Herman’s Hermits.
In a time known as the ‘evolutionary period for rock,’ Noone’s talent truly shined. His classic hits of the 60s sold more than 60 million records and in total, 14 singles and seven albums went gold. Additionally, the Hermits were named Cashbox’s “Entertainer of the Year” twice. He wasn’t done there. In the 70s, Noone composed songs and produced records for David Bowie and Debby Boone that gained commercial success. He also combined his acting background with his musical skills and stared played the leading roles in full-scale theatrical productions of Aladdin and Sinbad The Sailor. In the 80s, Noone went on to star on Broadway as the dashing hero Frederic in the New York Shakespeare Festival’s production of The Pirates of Penzance.
Noone’s charisma, charm, and high energy are not to be missed. Take this chance and step back in time with the Spring Sixties Spectacular. The day will be all about rock and pop, we will be joined by BJ Thomas, Dennis Tufano, and 1910 Fruitgum Company. Check out our exclusive interviews with BJ Thomas, Dennis Tufano, and Frank Jeckell of the 1910 Fruitgum Company. See you on Saturday April 29, 2017 at 7pm, right here at State Theatre New Jersey.
