The Monkees' first full live concert was held in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 3, 1966 before a sold out crowd at the Honolulu International Center Arena. The band had arrived in Hawaii on December 1, where they were greeted by several thousand fans at the Honolulu airport. The day before the show, the group visited radio station KPOI, spinning records and going live on the air. This practice became a tradition for The Monkees as they traveled from city to city while on tour.
