In all, the five artists on this year's tour have more than 60 Top 40 hits to choose from, including six No. 1 songs.

"Happy Together" by The Turtles hit No. 1 on the charts in 1967 (displacing the Beatles' "Penny Lane") and remains a staple on classic rock radio. It's one of their nine Top 40 hits, which included "She'd Rather Be With Me," "Elenore," "You Showed Me" and "It Ain't Me Babe."

Chuck Negron co-founded the multi-platinum band, Three Dog Night in 1967. The group went on to become one of the most successful bands of the late '60s and early '70s with 21 Top 40 hits and three No. 1 songs including "Joy to the World," "Black and White" and "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)." 

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap was one of the most successful musical groups of the '60s, boasting five Top 10 singles. Gary's voice garnered six consecutive gold records and Top 10 Billboard hits such as "Young Girl" and "Woman Woman." 

"Indian Reservation" by Paul Revere & The Raiders hit No. 1 on the charts in 1971, selling more than 4 million copies, which made it the biggest selling single for Columbia Records for almost a decade. Other hits from the band included "Kicks," "Hungry," "Just Like Me" and "Good Thing" as well as the Mark Lindsay Top 10 solo hit, "Arizona," from 1970. In all, the band would achieve 15 Top 40 hits, five making the Top 10. 

Gary Lewis & The Playboys had a song, "This Diamond Ring," go straight to the top of the charts, and later their second hit, "Count Me In," went to No. 2. They followed with more Top 10 songs such as "Save Your Heart for Me," "Everybody Loves A Clown," "She's Just My Style" and "Sure Gonna Miss Her."
