Monkees to Celebrate 45th Anniversary with Live Performances

 

Forty-five years after their groundbreaking show and hit singles took televisions and record players by storm, original Monkees members Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork have announced a tour. An Evening with The Monkees – The 45th Anniversary Tour launches on June 3 at Atlanta’s Chastain Park and rolls through more than 30 cities before concluding July 15 in Los Angeles. These shows mark the first live performances by the band in a full decade, and are sure to draw yet another generation of fans to their mix of music and comedy.

"We need to share this music once again as people want to hear music from times that made them happy," said Davy Jones. "The records are being played all the time. And, the fans are still there… So, we’re going to do it." Micky Dolenz added, "I’m looking forward to getting back together with my old buddies for some good ol’ rock and roll." Peter Tork concludes, "Each one of the tours we do is more fun than the one before."
