Ides of March, Herman's Hermits to share double bill
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
Berwyn's own rock stars – The Ides of March – will team up with Herman's Hermits, starring Peter Noone, for a suburban concert in May.
At age 15, Noone reached international fame as "Herman," lead singer of the legendary '60s pop band Herman's Hermits. With hits like "I'm Into Something Good" and "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter," Herman's Hermits was 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 at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 18, in the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd., in downtown Aurora.
The Ides of March, aka the "Boys from Berwyn," are best known for the 1970s hit "Vehicle." Lead singer Jim Peterik's additional hits include "Eye of the Tiger," the rock anthem he co-wrote as a member of Survivor.
Tickets cost $39.50 to $49.50; contact ParamountAurora.com or 630-896-6666.
