From Staff Reports 

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The iconic rock band Three Dog Night will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium, 385 N. Church St., downtown here.

The band’s now-famous name refers to native Australian hunters in the Outback, who huddled with their dogs for warmth on cold nights — the coldest being a “three dog night.”

The group scored 11 Top Ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including three that hit number one: “Joy to the World,” “Mama Told Me Not to Come” and “Black and White.”

Regarding the band, a promotion stated, “Legendary music icons Three Dog Night, celebrating nearly five decades, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. 

“In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more Top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

“Three Dog Night hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures — songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity.”

Spice Girls tribute group to spice up Newton on Nov. 26

NEWTON  —  The group Spice Wannabe — The Spice Girls Tribute will perform at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at the Newton Performing Arts Center, 60 W. 6th St., here. 

Regarding the show, a promotion stated, “Stop. Close your eyes. Take a moment to remember. Do you recall a time, not so long ago? A time of innocence? A time of simplicity? A time of Dunkaroos, Beanie Babies, bubble chairs, white eye-liner, Ring-Pops, bucket hats and bicycle shorts?

“Let’s be honest... It’s no secret that the ‘90s were, by far, the most colorful, dynamic and entertaining decade of all. It really felt as though life couldn’t get any better... Then along came the Spice Girls. 

“It was 1996 when the hit song ‘Wannabe’ swept the world in a swell of pre-teen, bubblegum hysteria. Ginger, Baby, Scary, Posh and Sporty became the new faces of pop music and girls (and boys, too!) everywhere were instant fans! With 65 million records sold worldwide, the Spice girls became the bestselling girl-group of all time.”
