American rock band ‘The Monkees’ have announced a tour, to reunite this Fall. They released music from 1966 to 1970. The members include Americans Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork, and Englishman the late Davy Jones and past band member Michael Nesmith
The Monkees will go on tour together for the first time since singer Davy Jones died of a heart attack in February, the group announced today. They will tour for twelve days which will start in November and included in the tour are three surviving Monkees along with Nesmith.
According to Rolling Stone, the set list will span The Monkees’ career, from their TV series to their movie “Head” to more obscure album tracks.
“I never really left,” says Nesmith of his time with the group. “It is a part of my youth that is always active in my thought and part of my overall work.”
“It stays in a special place, but like things in the past it fades in and out in relevance to activities that are current. Getting together with old friends and acquaintances can be stimulating and very fun and even inspiring to me.”
“We all did some good work together and I am always interested in the right time and the right place to reconnect and play.”
The Monkees plan to remember the late Davy Jones in a multimedia show with some rare photographs and videos throughout the tour.
