Micky Dolenz will hit the road this April for a special series of shows designed to pay tribute to his longtime bandmates Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. "Micky Dolenz Celebrates The Monkees" opens on April 5, 2022 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and will close in Madison, Wisconsin on April 16 at Overture Center for the Arts.
Joining Micky onstage will be the members of "The Mike & Micky Show" band: Wayne Avers, Emeen Zarookian, Gemma Dolenz, Rich Dart, Alex Jules, John Billings, and Pete Finney.
"We will be fully delving into The Monkees' songbook, as well as Micky's personal archive of films and photos to create a unique evening of memories," said manager Andrew Sandoval earlier today on social media. "It will give Micky and the band an opportunity to share the music he made alongside Davy, Peter, and Michael and reminisce on their journey as brothers for five decades. We have also been talking about Micky singing some songs he's never done on stage before, as well as pulling out older Monkees album tracks that have not been performed in many years. It is unclear if we will be doing anything beyond these nine shows in this format, but we are truly looking forward to being together again to celebrate the Monkees in song."
Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 11 but presales will begin on Tuesday, February 9 with the presale code CELEBRATE for all shows. Check out the official press release with tour dates below, as well as the most up-to-date press coverage regarding the announcement of the tour.
