One of the biggest requests I receive is to add tour dates to the website. I'm happy to announce that the complete tour schedules for the 1966-1969 tours are now available, and the itineraries for the '80s, '90s, '00s and '11 tours are on their way!
This exercise was made possible by an extremely generous contribution by Malcolm Searles from the UK, who is the former webmaster of the Good Clean Fun website that was online in the late 1990s/early 2000s. On his site, Malcolm had a section entitled 'Listen to the Band' that provided set lists and concert dates for past Monkees tours. Malcolm recently submitted to me his files containing tour dates and I'm pleased to now have this information be a part of the Live Almanac website.
Dates, venues and locations are now posted for all Monkees tours undertaken in the 1960s. I cross-checked Malcolm's lists of 1960s dates with Andrew Sandoval's book, The Monkees: A Day-By-Day Story of the '60s TV Pop Sensation, to insure complete accuracy and up to date information.
Stay tuned for tour dates from latter day Monkees tours in future updates. And thank you, Malcolm, for all of your assistance!
LATE NIGHT UPDATE: Tour dates for the 1988 Australian tour and the 1989 European tour are now available.
