1965 Caravan of Stars - Unit 2

The explosive success of Herman's Hermits in America coincided with their booking with the Caravan of Stars.  This unit lacks some of the depth of other Caravans as the charts are heavily moving away from typical Dick Clark acts.  This only emphasizes the singular popularity of the Hermits.  The unit's success at the box office encourages Clark to book other British acts for his summer and winter Caravans.





4/30/65 War Memorial Auditorium, Johnstown, PA

Talent: Herman’s Hermits, Bobby Vee, Little Anthony, Freddie Cannon, Brenda Holloway, Hondells, Round Robin, Reparta & Delrons, Detergents, Ikettes, Billy Stewart



5/1/1965  Convention Hall, Philadelphia, PA

Talent: Rolling Stones, Herman’s Hermits, Little Anthony, Bobby Vee, Freddie Cannon, Brenda Holloway


 Tour combines with R. Stones tour for this date and a billing dispute between the Stones and the Hermits result in a compromise where the Stones agree to take the stage long after the Caravan ends to create more of a separation in the minds of the audience.  Peter Noone is a competitive sort and he has the Hermits do a long closing set that pushes the Stones up against Pennsylvania's curfew law, shortening their set.

  1. I remember The Zoombies (She's not There) being at the Montreal Forum show. Is that possible?
