Davy Jones and Dolenz performed under the Monkees banner on the group’s last Canadian dates also at Casino Rama in 2002. The full group performed in Canada in April, 1967 at the Arena in Winnipeg and the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, which also was the scene of concerts by the Beatles.
Dolenz and Tork say they will be digging back into The Monkees’ songbook to perform a show featuring their Canadian hit singles, including “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You,” “She Hangs Out,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “That Was Then, This Is Now” and “Daydream Believer.” The show will also include deep cuts, acoustic numbers and fan favorites, plus a multimedia show.
