Last night at the The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California, Micky Dolenz took the stage with his sister Coco and special guests Michael Nesmith, Christian Nesmith, Circe Link, and Kiefo Nilsson. Micky and Nez performed "Me & Magdalena," a highlight from The Monkees' 2016 album, Good Times!, and later sang both "Listen to the Band" and "I'm a Believer" during the encore.
Jeffrey Sherman posted video of Micky, Michael, Christian, and the band performing "Me & Magdalena":
Joining everyone onstage was Micky's longtime touring group, who have also backed The Monkees in concert since 2012: Wayne Avers (guitar/musical director), Rich Dart (drums), John Billings (bass), Dave Alexander (keyboards), and Coco Dolenz (backing vocals).
Davy Jones' daughters Talia Jones Roston, Sarah Jones, and Annabel Jones, along with Davy's first wife Linda Haines Jones, were also in attendance.
April Hayes shared her photos from the concert on Facebook:
And Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild posted this photo on Twitter of Michael and Micky singing "I'm a Believer":
Family members of Micky's longtime friend Harry Nilsson were also present, and Harry's son, Kiefo, accompanied Micky for the debut live performance of "Good Times." The song, originally demoed by Harry Nilsson for The Monkees in the late '60s, was revived last year after Micky added his vocal to the track, allowing for a modern day duet that ultimately inspired the name of The Monkees' 2016 album. You can watch Kiefo join Micky in the video below, courtesy of Dyana Levinson:
Kiefo Nilsson commented about his guest appearance with Micky on Facebook and posted a picture of the two onstage:
"Had the great privilege of getting to sing my dad’s part to 'Good Times' alongside Micky Dolenz tonight at the Canyon in Agoura Hills. Will be doing it again tomorrow at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills — come hang if you can!"
Thanks to Andrew Sandoval for sharing a photo of the set list with The Monkees Live Almanac:
Videoranch3D on Facebook posted photos and a few short videos of Michael with fans during the post-show meet and greet session. A portion of the proceeds collected from the meet and greet is being donated to the Davy Jones Equine Memorial Fund.
Stay tuned for more updates, and remember that Micky, Michael, and company will be doing it all again at this evening's show in Beverly Hills, California at the Saban Theatre!
