Teen Idols David Cassidy, Peter Noone and Micky Dolenz to Join Forces on Stage for First Time Ever
On March 22, David Cassidy presents The World's Greatest Teen Idols in concert at the Theatre at Westbury featuring David, Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits) and Micky Dolenz (Monkees). This is the beginning of a year-long tour of the United States that will include venues from New York to California.
Audiences will be reminded of the highlights of their youth through the songbooks of their lives with the hits from these three stars. David, Micky and Peter have a total of 42 charted songs and together have sold over 250 million records! And now they're together on stage for the very first time. Audiences will hear "I Think I Love you," "Last Train to Clarksville," "There's a Kind of Hush" and many more classic and timeless hits that have transcended three generations over five decades.
They have more in common than meets the eye - each started his illustrious career on television, David on "The Partridge Family," Micky on "The Monkees" and Peter on the British soap opera "Coronation Street." As young lads, they each then became singing sensations. Peter became known as Herman of Herman's Hermits, which spawned such hits as "I'm Into Something Good" "Mrs. Brown, you've Got A Lovely Daughter", "I'm Henry VIII, I Am", "Silhouettes", "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat", "Wonderful World", "There's A Kind of Hush", "Listen People", and many more. Herman's Hermits sold over 80 million recordings. In all, fourteen singles and seven albums went gold. The Hermits were twice named Cashbox's "Entertainer of the Year".
Monkees' hits on which Micky sang lead vocals included "Last Train to Clarksville," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "I'm a Believer," "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone" and, of course, "The Monkees" theme song. Other hits include "Daydream Believer" and "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You." The Monkees achieved their greatest success as recording artists selling in excess of 65 million units and achieving Worldwide fame. Their first four albums, "The Monkees," "More of the Monkees," "Headquarters," and "Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd." reached number one on the charts. After the Emmy Award winning Monkees show ended, Micky went on to become a successful writer, producer and director and has enjoyed Starring on Broadway and on London's West End.
David saw success both as "The Partridge Family" and as a solo artist with hits that included "I Woke Up in Love This Morning," "C'mon Get Happy," "Cherish," "I Write the Songs," "Doesn't Somebody Want To Be Wanted," "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do," "Could It Be Forever," "How Can I Be Sure," "Rock Me Baby," and his trademark song "I Think I Love You." Ten albums by The Partridge Family and five solo albums were produced during the show and many more thereafter. His concert in New York's Madison Square Garden sold out in less than 30 minutes, an all-time record (without the existence of the Internet!) and resulted in riots. His concert tours of the UK included six sellout concerts at Wembley Stadium over one weekend in 1973. In Australia in 1974, the mass hysteria was such that there were calls to have him deported from the country, especially after the Madness at his record-breaking 73,000 audience concert at Melbourne Cricket Grounds. He continued to act, receiving an Emmy nomination for "Police Story."
In addition to performing in concert, Micky, Peter and David have continued their acting careers on television, in film and on the theatre stage on Broadway, national tours and in the UK. The three men remain teen idols to their throngs of fans in America and around the world.
