Michael Nesmith Announces Solo USA Tour Dates

After the huge success of last year’s Monkees tour, the usually
reclusive Mike Nesmith has been recharged and is embarking on his own
solo tour this spring. Nesmith took to Facebook to deliver this
information today (Jan. 28). The dates are listed below.

“This is the tour to break in the show,” he wrote. “See if you like
it, earn the promoters confidence, and see if anybody comes. If it
goes well we will keep going later in the summer/fall and hit the
states we missed on this half-lap of the U.S. If it goes poorly we
will stare blankly into the future and post pictures of cute animals
and food.”

Two weeks ago, Nesmith teased his fans – also on Facebook – with the
news of an upcoming solo tour in an amusing and offbeat post. “I
thought the man and woman at the door might be from a religious

group,” he wrote. “I was wrong. It was an easy mistake to make, it
turns out they were from TIAPWWGAI (The International Association of
People Who Wont Go Away) and I had been per-approved for membership. I
found out later that acceptance in the club is automatic at a certain
age. I wondered how they got my name and they said they heard I was
going on tour in the U.S. this Spring.”

The band for this tour will consist of Nesmith on guitar, bassist Joe
Chemay, Paul Leim on drums and Boh Cooper on keyboards. Rock on, Papa

    This is exciting new. I missed him in November when he came through Chicago with Micky & Peter. Here’s a change to make up for that. Anyone know when tickets go on sale? i checked Pollstar & ticketbastards, (I mean tickemaster) but they have nothing listed for him.

    Good to see group come back “home” to Texas this summer.
    Mike’s a native Texan; Mickey’s mom a Native from Austin.
    Hope they perform “What am I doing hanging round” when they play Austin!
