The Monkees Will Do Another Tour!?!?

THE MONKEES have announced the dates for their 45th anniversary tour.  It’ll start in the U.K., and will hit America on June 5th in Pompano Beach, Florida. 

(You can see all the dates, here.)

(Pompano Beach is a good choice.  It’s just a few miles north of your grandparents’ retirement home in Fort Lauderdale.  So in other words, The Monkees are kicking things off with a HOME GAME.)

The Monkees put some previous animosities behind them to do this tour.  The last time they hit the road, which was 10 years ago, things didn’t end well.

PETER TORK raised a stink about all the drinking DAVY JONES and MICKY DOLENZ were doing.  And those two had issues too, with Davy saying in 2009 that he couldn’t imagine ever taking the stage with Micky again.

But Peter is now taking the blame for their problems on the last tour… saying, quote, “We were getting along pretty well until I had a meltdown.  I ticked the other guys off good and proper and it was a serious mistake on my part.”

Founding guitarist MICHAEL NESMITH will not be a part of this reunion.  He wasn’t involved with the 2001 tour either… and has only toured with The Monkees once over the past 20 years.  He joined them for a U.K. tour in 1997.

(One of the reasons he’s not interested is because his mother invented Liquid Paper, and left him with a fortune, so he doesn’t need the money.)
