Circe Link and Christian Nesmith will once again be a part of The Monkees' backing band when Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork perform in front of a sold-out audience at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, California on September 16. The show is already more than noteworthy as it will apparently be Michael's final live performance with the group.
When his father returned to the stage in 2012 for a Monkees tour that year after the passing of Davy Jones, Christian joined the band, playing guitar beside Wayne Avers. His companion Circe Link was welcomed aboard for the 2014 Monkees Tour. Both Circe and Christian have their own music careers, often recording and performing together.
As a preview of the Pantages show, here's Christian, Circe, and Micky Dolenz performing stellar versions of both "Porpoise Song" and The Beatles' "Good Morning Good Morning" during a special 2015 online performance:
