Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this November and will mark their first concerts together since 1997. The trio’s shows are set to feature a selection of their classic hits such as Last Train To Clarksville, I’m A Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday, deep cuts from their first five platinum albums (including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s) and fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic Head and their Emmy®-award winning television series. The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs. Since the tour dates fall forty-five years on from their epic struggle to become legitimate music makers, the concerts will be highlighted by a set performed by just Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork.
These dates comprise the first U.S. Monkees tour to feature Michael Nesmith since 1969. He has reunited with the group over the years; his last stateside concert with the band was a rare private show in support of 1997’s Justus album. These dates also follow the unexpected passing of their musical comrade Davy Jones in February. Plans call for Jones to be saluted in the show’s multimedia content. Although the Monkees and their fans will undoubtedly feel Davy’s absence, these concerts will be an opportunity to share their memories amidst the music and the movies that brought them together. Moreover, the band look forward to performing for their many new fans who have discovered their music through repeats of their TV show on Antenna television, classic rock radio, or via social media. One thing is for certain; these concerts will be a once-in-a-lifetime series of shows that are not to be missed.
