The Monkees - The Monkees Reunite For Davy Jones Tribute Tour!09 August 2012
The Monkees Reunite For Davy Jones Tribute Tour!
The remaining members of the original line-up, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork will be playing some of The Monkees' biggest hits, including 'Daydream Believer' and 'I'm A Believer.' The band was originally formed when they were brought together by TV producers for a television show in 1966. At the time, many commentators were touting them as America's answer to The Beatles. Whilst they never quite reached the levels of superstardom that The Fab Four achieved, they still became one of the biggest pop bands of their time and enjoyed four number one albums in just over a year.
The band broke up in 1969, when Mickey Nesmith left. In 1995, all four band members were reunited for a UK tour and in 1996 they even released a new studio album, entitled 'Justus.' A number of other reunion tours took place, but without Nesmith on board, though their 2011 was cut short over a scheduling dispute. Nesmith told Rolling Stone that he "never really left" the band and added "David's presence and his past will be throughout the show. He will be missed in his absence, but very much on our minds and in our heart. We will include some of the songs he sang, and do our best."
