This is extra sad now!
We were so sad when we heard that Davy Jones had died but now it looks like The Monkees were planning a new tour!
Bandmate Peter Tork said:
"Before this terrible news Davy and I were emailing each other so we could make the new tour happen.
We were looking forward to more tours. But those won't happen - at least not with Davy."
The last time Peter saw Davy it was during the band's last show last summer when the rest of their tour was cancelled due to a "glitch in our business department."
The last thing he said to him was:
"Goodbye, I'll see you later."
He doesn't think the band will play any more shows, though a tribute show isn't out of the question.
"It's not absolutely impossible. The Monkees have gone out as a threesome for most of the past 20-some years. But there are no plans, no discussion. This is way too early to begin to think about that.
Certainly if there's some kind of concert in his honor, I think we would all attend if we could arrange it."
So Monkees fans, even though a great loss was suffered, it might not all be over.
You never know.
