The Monkees Tour News and Updates
Say "Hey, hey" to the Monkees because they're making their comeback to the stage! The American-British quartet first won the hearts of music and TV lovers across the world in the late 60s and early 70s. The Monkees have peculiar origins: the group was formed in 1965 by producers for the American TV show "The Monkees," in Los Angeles and were essentially a "fake band". Though the show was short-lived, the actor-musicians definitely had some real musical talent and decided to (literally) take their show on the road. After getting the rights to make their own music, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones took talent into the studio and onto stages everywhere--effectively becoming one of the biggest boybands of all time.
Serving as the American response to the Beatles, this pop rock sensation lit up stages with their catchy tunes and equally irresistible personalities, thanks to their charming acting chops. The three surviving members of the original band (Dolenz, Nesmith, Tork) have always loved to perform, partaking in numerous Anniversary tours and specials, but now, they're teaming up for a nationwide tour! As a follow-up to their successful 2012 fall tour, the Monkees are gearing up for a jaunt that will take them across the US from May 22 through June 7. Now's your chance to hear ubiquitous hits, "Last Train to Clarksville", "I'm a Believer" and "Daydream Believer" in all their glory! Don't miss out on Monkees tickets this summer and re-live the good old days with their unforgettable tunes!
