The Monkees Are Back!

August 9, 2012

The Monkees, an American rock band most popular from 1966 to 1970, are back and headed on a twelve-date reunion tour! Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are reunitng for the first time since 1997. This is the first reunion tour since the death of former Monkee, Davy Jones. Though the Monkees are missing a member, they have made it very clear to Rolling Stone that Jones’ “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 hearts.” The Monkees are focusing on songs from Headquarters, their first real album as a band. A press released issued by the Monkees promised that there will be obscure tracks mixed with classic hits. Some Monkees hits include “I’m A Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville.” The Monkees might be a bit of a throwback but with the success they had in their prime, this twelve-date reunion tour is practically a guaranteed success!
