Thanks a lot to Jeremy Roberts for sharing his recently published article on Medium about a stop on The Monkees' triumphant 45th Anniversary World Tour!
Here's an inspired performance of "Steppin' Stone" live at NYCB Theatre at Westbury in New York on June 17, 2011. Performing in a theatre in the round, watch as a "dizzy" Micky halts the show for a little good clean fun. And man, seeing this reminds me of how much I miss Davy!
On July 23, 2011, five years ago now, Davy Jones gave his last performance as a member of The Monkees. The concert, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Marcus Amphitheater, was the final stop on the group's successful 45th Anniversary World Tour. Sadly, Davy passed away on February 29, 2012.
Thank you very much to Sherri Hansen for sharing previously unseen video footage from that show, which can be viewed below. Sherri has a few other items related to this historic performance that she's going to submit to the Live Almanac a little later, but for now, enjoy:
