Peace and love will reign in Costa Mesa, at least for one day, as a bunch of old hippies convene. All silliness aside though, this is a great bill for lovers of ’60s music, headlined, as the name of the tour suggests, by The Turtles. “Happy Together” is one of those great ’60s tunes which builds and builds to a crashing sing-along chorus. It’s in the Great American Songbook for a reason. Also on the bill is Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night, who will perform crowd pleasers such as “Mama Told Me Not to Come” and “An Old Fashioned Love Song.” The other big name is Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, while the rest of the bill is made up of The Classics IV, The Buckinghams and The Cowsills. Really, there are no excuses not to be happy together.
Happy Together takes place at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 21 at the Pacific Amphitheatre.
