Ex-Grand Fun Railroad Frontman Mark Farner Taking Part in Turtles’ 2014 Happy Together Tour

YouTube

Former Grand Funk Railroad singer/guitarist Mark Farner is among the veteran stars who will be performing on the 2014 edition of The Turtles’ annual Happy Together Tour.  The trek, which is marking its 30th anniversary this year, also will feature Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, ex-Three Dog Night singer Chuck Negron, and Gary Lewis & the Playboys.

So far, more than 40 dates have been confirmed for the package tour, which is scheduled to kick off June 7 in Biloxi, Mississippi, and is mapped out through an August 27 show in Pueblo, Colorado.  Among the major cities the outing will visit are Pittsburgh; Nashville; Des Moines, Iowa; Indianapolis, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; Winnipeg, Canada; and St. Paul, Minnesota.

Along with each act performing a set filled with classic hits, the show includes a special multimedia presentation offering video highlights of historic and nostalgic moments from the 1960s and ’70s.  More dates are expected to be added to the tour soon.

“I am proud to be suckin’ air and still able to do what I love doing,” says Farner in a statement.  “Rock has a grip on my soul and our fans rally to the call and bring it out of our innermost being time after time.  Damn that’s Good!  I know for a fact that Mitch Ryder, Gary Lewis, Chuck Negron, [Turtles singers Mark "Flo" Volman and Howard "Eddie" Kaylan] and myself will certainly be Happy Together this summer!”

Meanwhile, Volman declares, “This Happy Together Tour 2014 sizes up to be the strongest and most rocking summer we’ve had so far.  The artists who are with us make us excited to get started and the audience is in for a great night of music and memories.”
