Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork Announce Fall US Monkees Tour
The three surviving members of The Monkees -- Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork -- will hit the road in November for a brief 12-date tour.
The performances will mark Nesmith's first live appearances with the band since 1997.
The news follows the death of former Monkee Davy Jones, who died of a heart attack on February 29. Jones, Dolenz and Tork have toured frequently as The Monkees since reforming in the mid-'80s.
The tour will kick off at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, California, on November 8 and will wrap up at New York City's Beacon Theatre on December 2.
The shows will feature a selection of the band's hits, including “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday." Some songs will be performed for the first time since the 1960s. The shows also will feature a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photos, all of which will honor Jones.
Speaking of events honoring Jones, the David T. Jones Memorial / Monkees Convention will take place March 1, 2 and 3, 2013, at the Sheraton Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The event will feature appearances by Dolenz and Tork. Visit Monkeesconvention.com for the details.
