Hey hey!

The remaining members of Iconic '60s pop-rocking band The Monkees are embarking on a special, mini tour slated to ignite Nov. 8 in Escondido, CA!

While we can't imagine the legendary band without Davy Jones, who died of a heart attack in February, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork plan on making their Monkee brother's memory an integral part of the show.

We miss you Davy!

But we're so glad his music can live on in the hearts of everyone who loved him.

The Monkees

Sad, but sweet.

Due to the wishes of Davy Jones’ family for a low-key, private funeral, former bandmate Micky Dolenz has insisted it would be detrimental for himself, Peter Tork and Mike Nesmith to attend the funeral in Florida.

The Monkees Were Planning A Tour Before Davy Jones' Death

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

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.

He said:

"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.
