ne,” Three Dog Night famously sang, “is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.” That lyric, from the group’s breakthrough hit “One,” has likely taken on an additional layer of meaning for singer Danny Hutton, who is the lone original member in the pop-rock band’s current incarnation. In their late-‘60s heyday, Three Dog Night was fronted by three lead vocalists: Hutton, Chuck Negron and Cory Wells. While the band was Hutton’s idea, he ended up being the featured vocalist on the least number of Top 10 singles. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that Hutton and company will be playing all of the hits, including the aforementioned “One,” “Easy to be Hard,” “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” “Joy to the World,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” “Shambala,” the list goes on. For those who can still hear those songs in their heads — and, in many cases, first heard them in real-time on a transistor radio — here’s your chance to come out and relive them in concert, while also lifting an inveterate road warrior’s spirits. Because, as any classic-rock survivor will tell you, it can get pretty lonely out there.
