Peter Noone's voice and personality
are the backbone of Herman's Hermits, one of pop's undisputed classic
bands. His career with that popular recording act has sold well
over sixty million records.
Noone is a multi-talented entertainer who has been delighting audiences
nearly all his life. He was born in Manchester, England, where he
studied voice and acting at St. Bede's College and the Manchester
School of Music and Drama. As a child, he played "Stanley Fairclough"
in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street.
He was also featured in the television series Knight Errant,
Family Solicitor and Monro's Saki Stories.
At the age of fifteen, Peter achieved international fame as "Herman",
lead singer of the legendary sixties pop band Herman's Hermits.

to sold-out venues the world over. He has a legion of faithful fans
