After this weekend's concerts, Micky & Peter will travel across the pond to England for The Monkees' first live appearances there since the 45th Anniversary World Tour in 2011. The duo is scheduled to be guests on BBC Radio 2 to promote the shows.
Johnnie Walker Meets Rod Stewart (Monday, 8pm, Radio 2) really ought to touch on the fact that Johnnie was already famous when Rod was still the support act, while Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork of The Monkees are Simon Mayo’s guests (Tuesday, 5pm, Radio 2) as they begin a UK tour, a barely believable 50 years since they were first put together in a TV producer’s Petri dish. Mayo needs no interviewing help from me or anyone else, but I do hope he asks them whether they realise that they are now the most influential pop group of all time.
