Former Three Dog Night Vocalist Will Bring “Joy To The World” On ‘Happy Together Tour’ With Aid of Oxygen Glasses

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 22, 2017) – When Chuck Negron found out 25 years ago that he had Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) coupled with Emphysema, he knew his days in show business were numbered. The rock icon whose hits include “Joy to the World,” “One” and “Easy To Be Hard” has been touring hard since then and in June will kick off the iconic Happy Together Tour wearing Oxy-View glasses — a new solution to live performance and breath support that he hopes will inspire fellow musicians and people with disabilities. Fans can also see him on solo dates throughout the remainder of 2017.

“Wearing oxygen onstage or in public isn’t something that any celebrity wants to do, but I had to do something and these glasses were a miracle answer. I can breathe freely, sing 100 percent better and no one knows the difference!” said Negron, adding, “I hope that my story encourages others to get the medical support they need. Live life to the fullest and pursue your dreams no matter what.”

Last year, Negron’s doctors advised him that if he kept performing he would put his health in serious risk. He would either need to retire or find an alternative. Wearing a cannula onstage was out of the question, but so was retiring — so his management went out and discovered Oxy-View glasses.

These unique glasses allow the oxygen to travel through the hollow frames and into two tiny tubes that hook into his nose. The main oxygen line connects to the stems at the back of the glasses and is disguised to look like a guitar cord that runs underneath his jacket and connects to an oxygen concentrator that is placed off stage alongside other stage equipment. This accessory is nearly unnoticeable for fans and helps Negron remain in good health and perform an outstanding show.

Negron will tour for the fourth year on the critically-acclaimed, Happy Together tour, joining headliners The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie as well as The Association, The Box Tops, The Cowsills and The Archies starring Ron Dante.
