Lynne was one of the opening acts on The Monkees' 1967 summer tour.
The video below is labeled as being from Detroit, Michigan in July 1967, but the Detroit concert was actually held on August 13, 1967 at Olympia Stadium. The originally planned July date was canceled and rescheduled due to rioting.
You can also see Lynne Randell, who opened the shows in America, before The Monkees take the stage.
Lynne was one of the opening acts on The Monkees' 1967 summer tour...
Lynne Randell was a British born singer who experienced her greatest pop music successes in Australia. At one point in the mid-1960s she was Australia's most popular female performer and had hits with "I'll Come Running Over" (a song originally recorded by Lulu), "Heart," "Goin' Out of My Head," and "Ciao Baby." In 1967, Randell toured the United States with The Monkees (along with Jimi Hendrix) and wrote for teen magazines during this time period. Lynne passed away in 2007.
In this insightful 1988 interview on the Headquarters radio program, Lynne speaks with hosts Paris Stachtiaris, John Di Maio, and Valerie Lionel about her experiences on tour with The Monkees and Jimi Hendrix, her music career, Peter's push to get Lynne on the bill for the '67 tour, meeting Davy, her recollections of Hendrix, and much more. You'll also get to hear Lynne performing live in 1967.
