Many thanks for everyone's emails! My inbox has been flooded with questions about how and when to get tickets, what's included in the VIP packages and more. However, I have no other information at this time to relay to everyone. Please stay tuned to the following sites throughout the day on Wednesday to insure that you receive the most up-to-date information about tickets sales:
The Monkees Tour Facebook page
What do we know so far?
1.The Monkees Tour Facebook page left a comment that they will be posting all information regarding ticket sales as well as pre-sales within the next day. It is most likely safe to assume that this information will be made available on Wednesday, April 30. The Live Almanac will also share these details here on the blog once it becomes available. However, check the tour's Facebook page and Monkees.com throughout the day on Wednesday for the most immediate news regarding ticket sales.
2. Monkees.com has reported that Pre-sale and VIP ticket packages for all shows will go on sale exclusively at Monkees.com on Wednesday, May 1 at 10AM local time. What is local time? That wasn't made clear and hopefully this will be clarified shortly.
3. VIP ticket packages are said to include a copy of the upcoming Rhino deluxe edition of The Monkees Present. (The Monkees Present deluxe will also be sold separately.) No other details were given about VIP packages, including whether or not they will include meet and greet options. UPDATED 4/30: There will be no options for meet and greet in the VIP packages.
4. No release date has been given for The Monkees Present deluxe edition, nor is a track listing available at this time.
5. General on-sales for all dates, according to Monkees.com, will begin on Friday, May 3.
Thanks for your support of the Live Almanac!
