HAPPY TOGETHER TOUR: "ROCK HAPPY!" The pioneers of pop-psychedelic harmony return! Check out the Tour Dates Here
'Happy Together Tour' spreads love at Melody Tent
"The evening's entertainment began with the Buckinghams
doing one of their best-known songs, "Don't You Care," before moving quickly into "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," immediately pushing all the nostalgia buttons and getting the crowd singing to the groove.With many in the audience bouncing in their seats, the group then slipped into "Hey Baby (They're Playin' Our Song)." After 45 years of playing rock 'n' roll, they were still able to hold the crowd spellbound with their rendition of "Susan"..."Kind of a Drag" was next on the agenda, one of the Buckinghams' biggest hits. The song received the first of the night's several standing ovations from a crowd that was sprinkled here and there with tie-dyed shirts reminiscent of the '60s."

The "Happy Together Tour 2011" was a hit at the Keswick Theatre
Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna opened the show with a great energy and some funny exchanges. They were clearly happy to playing their hits again. And speaking of hits, they performed favorites "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," "Susan," (which turned into a sing-a-long), "Don't You Care," and my favorite, "Kind of a Drag." They also covered the Soul Survivors' "Expressway to Your Heart." It's surprising how well these guys can still sing..."

Concert review: Happy Together Tour an energetic salute to the '60s
"Every act on this psychedelic salute to '60s music, which stopped Sunday night at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center, looked to be having a great time, even if their last No. 1 hit had been 40 years ago....Giammarese's voice has deepened with age and added a richness to their music."

The Buckinghams in Concert, California Theatre of Performing Arts, San Bernardino, CA
"They received a standing ovation and when they went to the lobby to sign autographs, the line was quite long to see them up close and personal."
