David Cassidy, who gained
fame as a pop star and member of “The Partridge Family” in the 1970s, will bring “The World’s Greatest Teen Idols” tour, featuring himself, Peter Noone of
Herman’s Hermits and Micky Dolenz of The Monkees, to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3.
The three stars have a total of 42 charted songs and together have sold more than 250 million records. And now they’re together on stage for the very first time, performing “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.
All three pop stars launched their careers on television (Cassidy on “The Partridge Family,” Dolenz on “The Monkees” and Noone on the British soap opera “Coronation Street”), and they all went on to become singing sensations. Noone became known as Herman of Herman’s Hermits, which spawned such hits as “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” “Wonderful World,” “There’s A Kind of Hush,” and many more. Herman’s Hermits sold more than 80 million recordings. In all, 14 singles and seven albums went gold.
The Monkees’ hits on which Dolenz 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. The Monkees achieved their greatest success as recording artists, selling in excess of 65 million units and achieving worldwide fame.
Cassidy saw success both on “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.”
