Sunshine Superman 50th Anniversary Tour | Donovan | June 4th

DONOVAN celebrates the 50th anniversary of his single “SUNSHINE SUPERMAN” when it reached #1 on The Billboard Charts. The album of the same name is considered a classic masterpiece, described during DONOVAN’s induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012: “Donovan single-handedly initiated the Psychedelic Revolution with Sunshine Superman.”
Audiences during the tour will be treated to DONOVAN’s history of hits, including “Sunshine Superman,” “Mellow Yellow,” “The Hurdy Gurdy Man,” “Jenifer Juniper” as well as his legendary storytelling and other cult classic songs.
SONY/LEGACY RECORDINGS will present “The Essential Donovan”–a collection of DONOVAN’s hits and other innovative album selections.
Gibson Guitars has created a special “Donovan Model J45 Guitar,” the guitar on which DONOVAN composed, recorded and performed all his 60s works.
It’s all a long way from that heady 60s decade that birthed him, but 2016 will confirm DONOVAN as much more than a mere heritage act. He embodies the history of British rock and pop. DONOVAN is an institution, and his legacy and influence will ensure that he is part of its future, too.
