Somewhere, I have black and white snapshots of a Herman's Hermits concert I attended on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, N.J., more than 40 years ago.

The photos are blurry, but you can spot Peter Noone's head bobbing above a sea of transfixed teenage girls. I remember elbowing my way to the front to hand him a teddy bear on behalf of another girl.

If you go The British Invasion Concert, sponsored by MPT, takes place at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave. The show features Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone; Badfinger star Joey Molland; Denny Laine, former singer with Moody Blues and Wings; and Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas. Tickets are $60-$75. Call 800-522-8915 or go to mpt.org. Tickets are also available through Ticketmaster.
