The Monkees Are Reuniting

| Filed under: Music Minute

The Monkees
Monkees now

At least three of them are. Yay!

The Monkees are reuniting for a 10-date tour 45 years after they first got together in 1966 to star in their television show that ran until 1968 on NBC.

Peter Tork (left), Davy Jones (middle), and Micky Dolenz (right) will play concerts throughout the UK, while Mike Nesmith, the fourth original member who went on to record a series of critically acclaimed country albums, is not taking part.

The band received some bullshizz back in the day for their manufactured nature, but eventually proved themselves by writing their own songs and landing 9 top 40 hits!

We'd definitely like to hear them play I'm A Believer in concert, but unfortunately their tour is limited to England…for now.

Would U go see the Monkees?

    Hey Hey You're The Monkeys, People Say You Monkey Around, But You're Too Busy Singin', To Put Anybody Down ~ Hey, that's an attitude that has been lost in the U.S.A. I hope you can make that attitude resurge too. LUV, LUV, LUV YA, BABIES. I'M A BELIEVER!!!

    But what are they gonna do when they find out there's no monkeying around allowed these days!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read Heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

    I sure would plus I love how a band like this can go on and on and still have buzz. Davy Jones was my first crush at age 5 and I ended up marrying a David Jones 15 yrs later! LOL :)

    I would see them again, considering they were the first concert I ever went to during their comeback tour of 1986.

    Several years ago MTV ran a "Monkees" marathon. I called my (at that time) very young granddaughters and asked them to give it a look. I can tell you my "cool score" with my little granddaugters went through the roof!!!! They thought it was sooooooooooooo cool.

    Does anyone know is the "Monkees" tv series available on DVD????

    Um…better check your facts…Peter Tork took the proverbial "Last Train to Clarksville" several years ago. In other words…he's dead.



  8. 8

    Ah…correction…my friend just told me he's not dead…but he is dealing with cancer of the head and neck. Hope that the strain of touring isn't too much for him!

    Peter Tork battled cancer in 2009, but is very much alive.

  15. 15

    I loved them as a teenager, but I always thought Mike Nesmith was the biggest talent of the group. I would see them if he were there — otherwise I — oh, hell, YES, I would go!!

    Re: Glen Coco – YOU GO, GLEN COCO! and i was just about to say, if i want to see a monkees reunion for free, i'll watch me some Boy Meets World!!!

    What I would do is try to get all four and do one big concert or one well promoted concert - say in London - and record it with a live album.



  18. 18
