The Monkees

The Monkees are touring this summer, kicking things off at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on July 15 and will play two other NY-area shows: Red Bank, NJ's Count Basie Theatre on July 17 and Westbury, NY's NYCB Theatre on July 19. Tickets to the Cap show go on sale Friday (5/3) at noon; tickets to NYCB Theatre go on sale Friday (5/3) at 10 AM with a Live Nation presale starting Wednesday (5/1) at 10 AM. Tickets to the Count Basie Theatre show also go on sale Friday at noon.

While Davy Jones died of a heart attack in February 2012, the surviving Monkees (Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork, Michael Nesmith) will all be involved. (Nesmith has sat out of previous tours since 1970 up until last year.) Dolenz sang lead on some of the band's most famous songs ("Last Train to Clarksville", "Take a Giant Step" and "I'm a Believer"). For this tour, which they're calling "A Midsummer's Night With the Monkees," the setlist will go in chronological order, using videos and photographs from throughout their career. It's an interesting approach, and one that will put their biggest hits at the start of the show.

All tour dates are listed below.

I wish Hermins Hermits would tour soon.

This is more exciting than NMH touring.

To the same guy that constantly posts a Herman's Hermits line... it's HERMAN'S NOT HERMIN'S.

Let me fix that for you 5:07

"This is more exciting than NMH touring, if you are Rockin Daddy"

Herman's Hermits do tour, constantly, but not as much as Dylan.

Seemed like Nesmith sat out until Davey died.

Herman's Hermits do not tour. Peter Noone is using the name. He bills himself as Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone.

It is not the same 1960's band... only the original singer.

and it's not Davey it's Davy.

Has anyone ever heard that hardcore techno remix of that one Herman's Hermits song "Misses Brown You Have a Lovely Daughter"?
The bassline is so sick and it's a real dancefloor stomper.

Encore: Head in it's entirety.

I wish somebody would make an entire album of "Hardcore Techno" remixes of Herman's Hermits songs.
I bet it would sound a lot like the new Daft Punk album.

The line about the setlist going in chronological order is not exactly true.

The Zombies suck

"Nesmith has sat out of previous tours since 1970 up until last year."

That is false too, for several reasons.

The Monkeys and The Zombies and The Beatles and an entire boatload of mid 60's English bands all sound the same. All little happy numbers that are good for skipping around in the park high on LSD...

British music sucks

One of Neil Diamonds best songs!

The Monkees are an all time favorite of mine with all their variety and talent!

My friend, dancing upside down in the corner of a bar in South Souix. Lord, I miss you my dear friend! It's a wonder we didn't all get tossed out the door!
