Here is a look at upcoming concerts.

Events include Salute to the ’60s with Herman’s Hermits featuring Peter Noone at the Star Plaza Theatre.

Salute to the ’60s

Herman’s Hermits featuring Peter Noone, the Grass Roots and the Buckinghams will be part of this 8 p.m. Jan. 26 show at Star Plaza Theatre, 8000 W. Delaware Place, Merrilleville, Ind.

“With 23 hit singles, Peter Noone and Herman’s Hermits were a household name in the ’60s,” officials said.

“Songs like ‘I’m in to Something Good,’ ‘Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter’ and ‘There’s a Kind of Hush’ are just a sampling of hits that made Herman’s Hermits an international sensation during the famed British Invasion of the ’60s.

“In the history of rock ’n’ roll, only nine bands have charted more hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 than the Grass Roots having hit the charts with tunes like ‘Temptation Eyes,’ ‘Sooner or Later’ and ‘I’d Wait a Million Years.’

“Chicago natives the Buckinghams were propelled into the spotlight with the two-minute recording sensation ‘Kind of a Drag.’

“Signed to a contract, the Buckinghams followed their smash hit with five more including ‘Don’t Care,’ ‘Mercy, Mercy, Mercy’ and ‘Susan.’ ”
