Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, And Peter Tork Join Forces For Nationwide Jaunt
24 Exclusive Dates Announced For U.S.; Presales Start May 1
Following their sold out 2012 fall tour, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this summer for a reprise.

Dubbed “A Midsummer’s Night With The Monkees,” the jaunt kicks off at Port Chester, New York’s Capitol Theatre on July 15 and wraps at Portland, Oregon’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on August 18.

VIP ticket packages will also include a copy of the upcoming deluxe edition of THE MONKEES PRESENT, the next in the acclaimed series of Monkees reissues from Rhino Handmade. General on sales for all dates begin May 3. THE MONKEES PRESENT will also be sold separately.
