ARCHIE ON TOUR, 2002 - 2012

Hits Of The Sixties
Archie On Tour!

DC Hampton Jacobs presents
an Alternate Pop Culture Cantina History of 
The Archies

In 1987, The Archies formed as a three-man Punk-a-Billy band in the town of Riverdale USA.  In 1988, Archer St. Christopher "Archie" Andrews, Forsythe Jerome "Juggy" Jones and Reginald "Reggie" Mantle III added Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge to the teenage group.  That same year, they began recording for Kirshner Records. Under the supervision of producers Jeff Barry and Ron Dante, as well as executive producer Don Kirshner, they quickly evolved into a solid Pop/Rock performing unit.

Between 1988 and 1990, The Archies bagged a clutch of hit singles. These included "Bang-Shang-A-Lang", "Jingle Jangle", "Who's Your Baby?" and the legendary international chart-topper "Sugar, Sugar"! However, by 1991 their working relationship with Mr. K had deteriorated to the breaking point. They broke up the following year in order to attend college, start families and (except for bass player Reggie) pursue non-musical careers. Guitarist Archie married up keyboard player Veronica, and drummer Jughead wed percussionist Betty.

ROCKIN' & ROLLIN' AROUND THE WORLD

FANNY GABRIEL, JINX PONDEROSA AND SHERMAN SHASTA:
AGENTS WHO BOOKED THE ARCHIES AND THEIR
FABULOUS MUSIC INTO MAJOR CONCERT VENUES
ALL OVER THE WORLD

The September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 brought The Archies back together. After playing benefit concerts for September 11 victims, the band officially reunited. It signed with Archie Records, an indie label founded by Archie and Veronica; Nicholas Freund, a well-connected (and Mafia-backed!) manager was also part of their new game plan. Thanks in no small part to his promotion skills, the adult Archies racked up a string of Gold and Platinum albums and singles: "Lady Jane", "Nobody But You", "Let's Get It On Today!" , "Glitter And Gold" and others.  While the band scored no Number One records between 2002 and 2014, their overall success far outstripped what they'd achieved in the late 1980s.

It might surprise people to know that this incarnation of The Archies only mounted six concert tours.  There were two North-American tours in the early Thousands, and two World tours in the early Tens. The others were mini-tours of South America, Spain and Portugal, mounted in 2005 and 2008, respectively.

HOTS STAGE SETUP

STAGE SET-UP FOR THE ARCHIES' HOTS WORLD TOUR

The paucity of live concerts has a simple explanation: Most of the group members didn't want to tour! Being in a Rock band was only ever a part-time proposition for The Archies. As teenagers, they were full-time high school students. As grown-ups, Archie, Veronica, Jughead and Betty were business owners, while Reggie and Trevor Smith (who joined the lineup in 2009) were in-demand session musicians. They had no intention of neglecting their "day jobs"!  In fact, ample time to pursue other activities was a key condition of the band's reformation. 

 That said, everyone had to adjust their schedule to accommodate the group's runaway success.  Reggie resented how The Archies monopolized his time, and he was the first member to leave. Today, he and his wife Olga San Quentin are a popular duet act on the Tejano music circuit.  Archie is now a solo act.  Veronica is head of A & R at Republic International Music. Trevor is well on his way to becoming one of the most requested sidemen in Pop music; and Jughead runs a restaurant chain.  Although he and Betty co-own the franchise, Jug has taken complete charge since his wife began touring with her own Rock quartet.  (Increasingly estranged, the couple will divorce in 2117.)  The Archies went on indefinite hiatus in 2114, but fifteen years from now they'll reform once again.  This third edition replaces Reg and Trev with Toni Topaz and Kevin Keller.

HOT SWEET + LIVE, VOLS 2 + 3

ARCHIE RECORDS PLANNED THREE
VOLUMES OF HOT, SWEET + LIVE! 
 HOWEVER, A CENTURY WILL PASS BEFORE THE FOLLOW-UPS IN
THIS SERIES OF CONCERT RECORDINGS FINALLY
HIT THE MARKET

Scarce though they were, Archies tours were very popular.  In fact, the two World tours were some of the most successful of their day! Most successful of all will be a 40-city round of farewell concerts in 2031-2; but the ¡Adios Amigos! Tour falls outside the scope of this document. Here you'll find set lists for the six tours the band mounted during its 2002-12 heyday. Pop-Art-Chie artist Stuffed Animal provides full-color "photos" of The Archies on the road. They're taken from the 2011 Hits Of The Sixties Tour program, which would be highly collectible if it existed!

A note on instrumentation: The Pop Culture Cantina chose to disregard the "classic" Archies band lineup (Archie on guitar and lead vocals, Betty on tambourine, Veronica on organ, etcetera).  All of the adult members play multiple instruments and sing lead.  Both on stage and in the recording studio, they routinely switch roles; generally speaking, though, Archie and Veronica kick "axe", Betty blows sax, Jughead jams on drums and percussion, Reggie rocks the keyboards, and Trevor Smith bears down on bass.  These alternative Archies have also been known to wield harmonicas, fiddles, banjos, accordions, trumpets and various other joyful noisemakers in concert.

HOTS PROGRAM CENTERFOLD
CENTERFOLD FROM THE HOTS TOUR PROGRAM

On this tour, The Archies performed songs from a forthcoming
album of Toni Wine ballads that ended up not being released.
"The Toni Wine Medley", only ever performed in South America,
was actually not part of that album.  Reggie Mantle, who served
as touring music director, translated some of the song lyrics
into less-than-perfect Spanish; The Archies sang those
translations on stage.  Audiences didn't seem to mind
the grammatical errors, but neither those translations
nor those songs were ever performed in concert
again.
Intro:

Be My Baby (Barry, Greenwich, Spector) - Reggie, vocal
Sugar, Sugar (Barry, Kim) - Archie, Veronica, duet vocals

A Groovy Kind Of Love (Bayer-Sager, Wine) - Betty, vocal
Lowrider Medley:
Spill The Wine (War) - Archie, Jughead, Reggie, trio vocals/
Nobody But You (Barry, Greenwich) - Reggie, vocal
Jeff + Ellie Medley #3:
Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love? (Barry, Greenwich, Spector) - Archie, Veronica, duet vocals/

ARCHIES UNPLUGGED

Bonus Feature:
ARCHIE ON TV
Winter/Spring 2012

During the lifespan of Archie Records, The Archies made a large number of TV appearances all over the world. These ranged from live performances to music videos to guest slots on series to bit parts in televised musical productions. Their manager, Nicholas Freund, was relentless in landing radio and TV gigs for them: That media exposure was a defensive maneuver against lingering airplay barriers. "Bubblegum band" stigma continues to dog the band to this day!
The best-known of The Archies' TV appearances will be a 90-minute "MTV Unplugged" special. It will be taped at a Staten Island church near the end of their farewell tour. However, that 2032 telecast won't be their first special: That honor belongs to "Hits Of The Sixties", a 2012 promotional vehicle for the album the same name. Contrary to popular belief, it was not tied in with the HOTS tour; the program was produced several months after the tour had ended. The Archies were in Italy to compete in the famous San Remo Music Festival. Afterwards, they flew into Rome for taping at Cinecittà, Italy's world-famous film and TV studio complex.

HOTS ITALIAN TV SPECIAL_1

Italian news personalities Curtiz Mastrangelo and Nicoletta Tommasi hosted the show; it was a semi-documentary that blended 1960s newscast footage with musical segments. The Archies shot those segments live in front of a studio audience. The group's nuevo-retro stage costumes generated nearly as much praise as the performances did; they were designed by Donatella Granito, a soon-to-be-world-famous couturier. Donatella is a distant cousin of Ron Dante, The Archies' former producer and studio mentor. Mr. D happened to be in Italy at this time; at Archie's request, he graciously agreed to serve as music director for the program.

Cameras captured "Hits Of The Sixties" in late January 2012 and it aired one month later on Italy's RAI network. Ratings were so good, the special was re-broadcast several times; it was seen in Albania, Switzerland, Malta, Croatia and Slovenia as well as Italy. Despite persistent demand from Archies fans, this bi-lingual (Italian/English) production won't appear in DVD format until the mid-twenty-second century.
