Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, is on the Happy Together Tour due to popular demand! He brings Three Dog Night’s biggest hits to the stage, including “Joy to the World,” “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” “Shambala,” “One,” “Easy to Be Hard,” among others.

Fans will affectionately remember “Young Girl,” “Over You,” “Woman, Woman,” “This Girl Is a Woman Now,” “Lady Willpower,” “Don’t Give in to Him,” and more.
The Buckinghams will be returning to the tour for the first time in five years! The band formed in 1966, and went on to become one of the top selling acts of 1967, including their No.1 hit “Kind of a Drag,” and other hits “Don’t You Care,” ”Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” and “Hey Baby, They're Playing Our Song.” With three chart hits at one time on two labels, in 1967, Billboard Magazine named them “The Most Listened to Band in America.”
The Classics IV is the newest addition to the Happy Together lineup. With their southern soft rock sound, they are one of the most popular and influential pop groups of the 60s and 70s. They achieved phenomenal success with multiplatinum hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces,” and “Everyday with You Girl.”
