Following their sold out 2012 fall tour, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this summer for a reprise. Because of the overwhelming demand from fans unable to see the limited run the trio undertook last November, The Monkees are bowing to popular demand, bringing their show to all new venues and markets this summer.
Last year's tour elicited raves from both fans and critics alike. "…Nothing could have prepared the uninitiated for the powerful concert the Monkees delivered…," wrote Chrissie Dickinson in the Chicago Tribune, "It wasn't just a recap of the band's greatest hits. It was an emotionally disarming multimedia show that, for all its backward glance, felt fresh and electric."
The trio's setlist will feature a selection of their classic hits (such as "Last Train To Clarksville," "I'm A Believer," "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone"), 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. Plus, a few surprises!
The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs culled from the archives. Backed by the same stellar crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio. This foray into tracks from their 1967 homespun #1 long player, Headquarters, is sure to be among the highlights of the upcoming dates.
