Michael Nesmith - The Monkees Kick Off Summer Tour With Nesmith

Michael Nesmith rejoined The Monkees in Port Chester, New York on Monday night (15Jul13) for the first time since he walked out on the band at the beginning of a European tour in 1997.

The guitarist has reunited with drummer Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork for a summer tour after reconnecting with his former bandmates following group frontman Davy Jones' death last year (12).

The trio appeared at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester for a hits set and screened video footage from The Monkees 1960s heyday.

The latest shows come two years after the group's 45th Anniversary Tour, which marked Jones' last dates with the band.

The late singer wasn't mentioned by name, but a video of him tap-dancing in the film Head was screened as the existing Monkees walked off at the beginning of an interlude, and the trio insisted on inviting a member of the audience to the stage to sing Jones' signature tune Daydream Believer, with Dolenz declaring, "None of us can really sing this song because it doesn't belong to us anymore. It belongs to you."
