Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz of The Monkees will hit the road in 2020 for An Evening With The Monkees. The two surviving members of the beloved 1960s group will also release their first live album as a duo, The Monkees – The Mike and Mickey Show Live, on April 3.
The 2020 tour is set to launch on the new album’s release day with a performance at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. The 14-date trek will run through Seattle, Sacramento, Phoenix, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and more. Dates will close out on April 26 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Nesmith and Dolenz previously toured as a duo in 2018.
The duo promises to perform material from throughout their more than 50 years in the Monkees and beyond with hits from the band’s 1966 self-titled debut to 2016’s Good Times. Good Times was recorded with the three surviving members at the time: Nesmith, Dolenz and Peter Tork. Tork passed away in February this year, while original member and singer Davy Jones passed away in 2012.
The Monkees – The Mike and Mickey Show Live was recorded live in March 2019 and produced by The Monkees’ archivist Andrew Sandoval and mixed by Christian Nesmith. The collection includes performances of all three of the band’s No. 1 hits: “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer” and “Daydream Believer.”
