Herman's Hermits, Starring Peter Noone, and Ides of March Set for Paramount Theatre, 5/18
At age 15, Peter Noone reached international fame as "Herman," lead singer of the legendary '60s pop band Herman's Hermits. Beloved by screaming teens thanks to Noone's good looks and big hits like I'm Into Something Good and Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter, Herman's Hermits were dubbed "the original British Invasion band" and went on to sell more than 60 million recordings, racking up seven gold albums along the way.
Flash forward nearly 50 years, and Noone and his band still perform more than 200 concerts a year. Their next Chicago-area stop is Saturday, May 18 at 8 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd. in downtown Aurora, in a strong double bill featuring the Ides of March, aka the "Boys from Berwyn," best known for their '70s hit Vehicle.
