Micky Dolenz is honoring his late Monkees bandmates Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones with a very special tour this April. Dubbed Micky Dolenz Celebrates the Monkees, it will visit seven cities within the Midwest and Southern United States.
With support from the Mike & Micky Show band, Dolenz will play various Monkees hits, older album tracks, and songs he hasn't performed onstage before, such as “Can You Dig It?” and “Valleri.” Dolenz will also share stories from his time in the made-for-television band and show special images and videos of the group from his personal archive.
“I felt it was important to gather the fans and properly celebrate the lives of Davy, Mike and Peter,” Dolenz said in a statement. “People have been contacting me, requesting that I honor them in a way where the extraordinary impact of the Monkees can be properly acknowledged. We spent such a great deal of time together; they were like my brothers, and I want to share some of the great joy we had together.”
Dolenz is the voice heard on many of the group’s most famous songs, including “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer,” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” Dolenz became the last surviving member of the Monkees last December, after he and Nesmith embarked on an extensive Monkees farewell tour. It wrapped up just 26 days before Nesmith died from heart failure. Peter Tork and Davy Jones died in 2019 and 2012, respectively.
Pre-sale offers for the show can be found here and a general ticket sale begins Friday.
