The first show of The Monkees' Farewell Tour is now complete. Micky, Michael, and the band performed this evening in Spokane, Washington and presented an eclectic set list that featured The Monkees' greatest hits, deep cuts, selections from their 2016 album, Good Times!, and more. A big thanks to Monkees author and historian Andrew Sandoval, who is producing the tour, for sending this picture of the set list to the Live Almanac.
In many ways, the set resembles the 2018-2019 "Mike & Micky" shows, but a couple of songs made their much anticipated live concert debut this evening in Spokane.
"Love Is Only Sleeping," a perennial favorite from The Monkees' fourth album, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd., is being performed for the first time, as is "While I Cry," a Michael Nesmith original from 1969's Instant Replay and another song fans have long held in high regard. "Through the Looking Glass," the opening track from Instant Replay, returns to the set for the first time since 1989.
"Different Drum," performed throughout the "Mike & Micky" shows and another Nesmith original, was the lead single from Micky's latest solo album, Dolenz Sings Nesmith.
