The Monkees stopped by radio station KCPX in Salt Lake City on May 16, 1968, the day before the live concert filming of "Circle Sky" for use in the group's feature film, Head.
On location to film the "Circle Sky" concert performance for the movie Head:

The Monkees, or their stand-in dummies that is, get torn to shreds after performing "Circle Sky" live in Salt Lake City during filming for Head. Jack Nicholson, of course, co-wrote and co-produced The Monkees' only feature film.
In this photo, Bert Schneider, Bob Rafelson and Michael Nesmith are photographed at the Valley Auditorium in Salt Lake City, Utah. The live "Circle Sky" performance for the movie Head was shot there in May 1968.

After filming the "Circle Sky" live scene for the movie Head in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 17, 1968, The Monkees played a brief set at Lagoon in Farmington, Utah for a packed house of 5,000 fans. Micky, Davy, and Peter returned to the venue in 1986 during the 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour:

May 25 – The Doors
May 29 – Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention / The Youngbloods / War Of Armageddon
