You're parents are going to be super bummed out.

If you were hoping to see Peter Tork, Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones this summer, you better start checking Netflix for reruns of their show. It was announced today that their 45th anniversary reunion tour has been canceled for the remainder of their dates.

No word yet on how come, but Davy took to his Facebook page to express his regrets to his fans. Or more accurately, his rep did, saying:

“It has been determined that the remainder of The Monkees 2011 tour has been cancelled. No reason has been given at this time … We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support of The Monkees.”

Secrets, secrets are no fun! What happened? Who did what to who? Tell us!!!

Whatever the reason, it better be a good one. We don't suspect there will be many more opportunities like this. You guys aren't getting any younger, you know!

    YOUR means your. YOU'RE means you are.

    Peter recently overcame a battle with cancer, and frankly doesn't look so good in the picture provided (though pictures can be deceiving). So it could be health related.

    You don't need to go to netflix!! I watch the monkees every weekend on Antenna TV, right after the flying nun. For me, it comes on at 3 pm. But man, this sucks.

    people forget that they were actors pretending to be a band
    the same way the Partridge Family were pretending to be a band
    the Monkeys worked to parlay it into a career
    in the Monkeys only Davey Jones could really sing
    and in the Partridge family it was Shirley Jones and David Cassidy who could sing
    .
    so not too many peole are upset about the news I'd imagine
    .
    a little info for those who didn't know
    the toque wearing Monkey -who is not with the group - was Michael Nesmith
    and it was his mother who invented Liquid Paper years ago
    younger kids may not even know what it is
    but it was a remarkable thing at the time

    The best idea, I think, is to see if you can get all 4 Monkees for one night's concert. Build it up big. Let them do their concert showcasing all of them. Record it on video. Do a live album. And let it go.

    I saw them in Columbus and Detroit and the shows were AMAZING! The people who think they couldn't sing or play their own instruments are very misinformed about music history and really have no purpose in speaking about them. Micky was considered "the lead singer" so obviously he could sing. Mike Nesmith wrote and produced many songs and could sing…he went on and had other records which, again, he sang on. Peter Tork was the most talented musician among the group, he played piano, guitar, bass, french horn, banjo…and he sang a few songs. They didn't play on their first two albums, but had complete control over their third album, "Headquarters." They also toured in 1967 and played live for thousands of people. Pretty big accomplishment for a band who "couldn't play or sing."

    I love the guys, and was very disappointed that the tour was canceled.
