The Monkees commenced their 2013 summer tour at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Many thanks to Jennifer Winkle for sharing her photographs from that night!
Thanks a lot to Jennifer Winkle who submitted these photographs from The Monkees' 2014 tour stop at the Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, New Jersey on May 23, 2014.
In an August 2016 interview with Rolling Stone, Michael Nesmith spoke about his composition "Circle Sky," a key song from the soundtrack of The Monkees' 1968 feature film, Head:
"I also wrote this one when we were performing. I wanted to explore the power trio of us. In a strange way, we were actually pretty good. Micky was a real garage-band drummer. I was a real scream-and-shout guitar player and Peter was a very precise player. He could play interesting lines and fills on the bass. The power trio that existed between us was seldom explored. The lyrics are about television and the corporate man."

In the January 1969 issue of Tiger Beat, editor Ann Moses brings you the latest about The Monkees:
Michael Nesmith performed Bo Diddley's "You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover" during his solo spot in The Monkees' stage show, beginning with the first Monkees live concert in Hawaii in December 1966 and throughout the group's summer 1967 tour of the United States and England. The Sundowners, one of the opening acts for the '67 summer concerts, backed Nez (and Davy, Micky, and Peter) during their individual segments.
Listen to Peter Tork introduce Michael Nesmith, with a little inspiration from The Beatles:
Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues performed live in concert last evening in Westbury, New York at NYCB Theatre. The group opened an evening of entertainment dubbed "Hot Autumn Nights" on a bill that included Peter Noone, The Grass Roots, and The Buckinghams. This marked Peter's first concert appearance since the conclusion of The Monkees' 50th Anniversary Tour last December, and his first public event since early May, where he took part in Wizard World Comic Con in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Peter and the band performed the following songs:
A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You
Bring It With You
Cross Cut Saw
I’m a Believer (with Peter Noone)
Pleasant Valley Sunday
Jennifer Winkle was in attendance and shared her photos on Facebook, along with audio of Peter's set:
Peter Noone made a surprise appearance and performed "I'm a Believer" with Peter:

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Micky Dolenz welcomed Michael Nesmith and friends back to the stage during his concert at The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. Previously on Friday night, Nez had joined Micky at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California for their first concert appearance together since September 2016.
Jodi Ritzen shared video from the show on Facebook, which includes the duo's performance of "Me & Magdalena" and the encore selections of "Listen to the Band" and "I'm a Believer."
Kiefo Nilsson, son of Harry, once again joined Micky for "Good Times" just as he had during Friday night's debut of the song at the Agoura Hills show.
