A group of the biggest pop and rock and roll stars of the 1960s will return to Daytona Beach for the fifth year in a row to perform the “Stars of the Sixties” concert. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Peabody Auditorium, 600 Auditorium Blvd. Tickets are currently on sale and are available for purchase at the Peabody Box Office, online at www.peabodyauditorium.org or by phone via Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. Ticket prices start at $39 plus surcharges.
The reunion will feature acts such as Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone, Chris Montez, Gary Lewis and The Playboys, The Box Tops and The Vogues. Many of the artists will be available to meet and greet fans and sign autographs in the lobby after the show.
Host of the 1989 television show “My Generation,” Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone will sing all their hits such as "I'm Into Something Good," "I'm Henry VIII," "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter," "A Kind of Hush," “Listen People,” “A Must to Avoid,” "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat" and more.
Gary Lewis and the Playboys saw their first seven releases hit Billboard’s Top 10 among them “Count Me In,” “Save Your Heart For Me,” “Everybody Loves A Clown,” “She’s Just My Style,” “Sure Gonna Miss Her” and the number one hit, “This Diamond Ring.”
Chris Montez was one of the few American musicians who found success in the early 60s (“Let’s Dance,” “Call Me”) and then returned to the charts in the 1960s with a fresh new sound (“The More I See You,” “There Will Never Be Another You”) despite the onslaught of the British invasion. During his tour in Liverpool, the Beatles opened for him.
The Vogues took the nation by storm with a cavalcade of top-10 smash hits like "You're The One" and "Five O'Clock World,” before transitioning from their blue-collared rock roots to the lush harmonies of pop-rock standards such as “My Special Angel” and the one that they recently performed on PBS-TV to a rousing standing ovation, “Turn Around, Look at Me.”
The Box Tops were trail-blazers in the 60s and one of the most influential bands of the era. They debuted at the Peabody in 2016 and are returning to play after many requests for an encore. For more information, visit https://tinyurl.com/y4j98akv.
