By Andrew Travers

Fifty years after the British invasion changed pop music, one of the movement’s most prominent groups, Herman’s Hermits, comes to the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek Tuesday. Frontman Peter Noone was 15 years old when he began performing as “Herman,” singing the enduring mid-60s hits “I’m Into Something Good,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am” and “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter,” among others.
