Michael Nesmith to join The Monkees for tour

Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this winter for a brief tour of the United States. These performances will mark their first concerts together since 1997. 

The trio’s shows are set to feature a selection of their classic hits (“Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday”), deep cuts from their first five platinum albums (including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s), fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic Head and their Emmy-award winning television series.

The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films, and one-of-a-kind photographs. These dates comprise the first U.S. Monkees tour to feature Michael Nesmith since 1969. He has reunited with the group over the years; his last stateside concert with the band was a rare private show in support of 1997’s Justus album.

These dates also follow the passing of Davy Jones last February. Plans call for Jones to be saluted in the show’s multimedia content.
