The concert was great. It was nice to meet some of you at the show!
Here we go...the last round of dates on the 2012 Monkees Tour will begin Thursday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the sold out Keswick Theatre. After that, the band will play at the following venues:
November 30 - State Theatre Regional Arts Center, New Brunswick, NJ
1 - The Paramount, Huntington, NY
2 - The Beacon Theatre, New York, NY
These dates are sold out, too. In fact, ticket sales were brisk back in the summer when these shows went on sale. (There might be some tickets available at secondary ticket agencies if you wanted to try and score a ticket at this late date.)
I guess the question now is, will there be more concerts?
Courtesy of our friends at Monkee Bootlegs comes this rare silent 8mm footage of Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart performing live in concert in the mid-1970s. (Audio from a DJBH show has been dubbed over it.) I've never seen it and nothing else is known about the footage.
Anyone have any information?
This video is posted on the 2011 page, but thought I would post it here in the event you missed it. It's Micky and Peter on Later with Jools Holland from England, promoting the May 2011 UK tour. I'm not sure where Davy was for this appearance, but be certain to catch Micky belt out "I'm a Believer" at the end (with Peter and Jools on piano).
This one's from Chicago. I have to post it again...sounds great!
...in Philadelphia on Thursday, enjoy some music and other goodies.
Here are Peter's two songs from the Head soundtrack, "Can You Dig It" and "Do I Have to Do This All Over Again," live in Buffalo, New York on November 18, 2012.

Here's a great shot of Andrew Sandoval with Mike, Peter and Micky backstage at the Greek Theatre earlier this month. The Monkees were awarded Gold records for the Best of The Monkees compilation.
This is a recent Facebook post by Michael Nesmith discussing how he ended up impersonating the Moog synthesizer while rehearsing "Daily Nightly" for the 2012 Monkees tour.
One of Davy's daughters, Annabel, speaks about her dad in this nice article.
