Today, The Monkees Announce 2014 Spring Tour…
After the commercial and artistic success of their 2012 and 2013 tours, the Monkees are taking the show on the road once again. The group have announced a 14-date tour that kicks off in New Hampshire and winds up in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Can’t wait to hang out with Papa Nez and the Torkmiester,” Dolenz said in a press release, “Looking forward to great music, great fun and truck-stop chili dogs at 4 a.m.”
The three surviving members of the legendary act regrouped following the passing of Davy Jones in early-2012. It was the first time Michael Nesmith had joined his mates on a full-fledged U.S. tour since he first left the band in 1970, although he was on a 1997 U.K. tour. “Happy to be going back out playing the music,” Nesmith said in a press release. “Sure we will have fun.”
The tour was first announced at the recent Monkees Convention in New Jersey. “Why don’t we do a tour?” Dolenz told the convention crowd, “Why don’t we do a tour in the middle of May? Does that sound like a good idea?” Ultimately confirming, “We’re doing it. We are touring.”
