After the international success of the Beatles in the early ’60s, a number of performers were able to follow them into the charts, including Gerry & The Pacemakers, the Searchers, and Cilla Black. Herman’s Hermits were also beneficiaries of Beatle mania, following a similar path as The Fab Four, albeit to a lesser scale.
With songs like “I’m Into Something Good,” “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter,” and, of course, the whimsical “I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am,” Herman’s Hermits became a fixture on the radio and on TV variety shows during the decade of “peace and love,” ultimately selling more than 60 million recordings with 14 singles and seven albums achieving gold status.
Fronted by the always energetic and endlessly charismatic Peter Noone, Herman’s Hermits continue to tour year-round, playing nearly 200 shows a year.
On Dec. 19, they will bring a special show entitled “An Olde English Christmas” to The Clyde. With this show, you’ll get the Herman’s Hermits hits you know and love a few Christmas favorites mixed in as well. It doesn’t get any better than when they sprinkle in “O Holy Night,” “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “Winter Wonderland,” or when Noone sits down to read the classic poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
