Saturday, Sept. 15, in Philadelphia, PA, at Franklin Field.

Okay, I’ve got it……
The guys are playing at a Temple Owls football game at Franklin Field.
(Yes, I know Franklin Field belongs to the University of Pennsylvania, but
the Owls play there sometimes, too.) The game is noon on Sept. 15th, and
the Monkees will play post-game. Tickets are available NOW thru
Ticketmaster, but you won’t find it under Monkees. It’s listed as “Temple
Owls vs. Connecticut Huskies, 9/15, noon”.
The stage will face the South Side of the stadium. If you happen to end up
sitting on the North Side, they will let people move to the 2nd level of the
south side for the concert. Tickets range from $20 for premium 50-yard
line seats, on down to $5 general admission seating in the end zone. No
one will be allowed on the field for the performance.
Oh! And the first 2500 people get the Hooter The Owl bobbing-head doll

A mini entertainment article on the Buffalo Sprinfield and their new box set
appeared in the Orlando Sentinel Sunday. One paragraph reads:

“Buffalo Springfield was formed when Stills, the formidable singer,
songwriter, and guitarist whom Peter Tork beat out to become the fourth
Monkee, and his friend Richard Furay stopped and talked to the hearse-driving
Canadian Neil Young on Sunset Boulevard in L.A….”

I heard from a friend that beginning this Fall, THE SCREEN GEMS network will
be airing “The Monkees” and “The Partridge Family” back to back. The SG
website has not been updated (in about a year I think) so I can’t seem to
confirm this – so watch out for commercials during its current “Bewitched”/”I
Dream of Jeannie” schedule!




From: Deidre Corwyn

From AMM:

While channel surfing last night, I heard a quick little blurb about a show
starting on Bravo August 12 – called Popular Sounds. They show the last episode
will feature “Micky” (with an “E”) Dolenz…to be one of the commentators.
Here’s the detailed scoop.

The episode that’s about the Monkees with Micky’s comments will be on next
Friday, August 18th at 7PM and 11PM EDT and 8 PM and 11:30 PM PDT. I
believe that this is that British series that is getting imported over to
the US. The whole series should be of interest to anyone who follows
popular music of the 20th century.

Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story
120 min.
The turbulent ride of the 1960s prefab quartet is recalled in this 2000
teleplay. In 1965, music
hitmaker Don Kirshner (Wallace Langham) teams with TV producer Van Foreman
Ferguson) to concoct a Beatles-type band for NBC. Musicians Peter Tork and
Mike Nesmith
(L.B. Fisher, Jeff Geddis) are cast, along with actors Micky Dolenz and
Davy Jones
(Aaron Lohr, George Stanchev), to play the Monkees. Although their
self-titled TV show and
songs like “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer” become big
hits, the guys grow
frustrated with their teenybopper image and lack of musical input as they
deal with the
pressures of stardom.

Ferguson, Wallace Langham, Edward Glen

I just read a review from a ‘supposed’ Monkee fan that
just cut down their show. Frankly, I thought it was
one heck of a show in North Platte, Ne. Kids of every
age were rockin’. Don’t knock what God has blessed
this world with…Good-Clean-Fun….The Monkees.

Aug. 10th Shoe Suede Blues Concert

Howdy! On August 10th, I went with my parents and two
friends to see Peter Tork and the Shoe Suede Blues
play up in Issaquah, WA. We live in Portland, and,
not having a 3kees concert coming nearby, we were very
excited. Belle and I are diehard Monkee fans, and
Martha likes the Monkees and is out to meet any
celebrity she can. 🙂 A long drive brought us to the
Community Center in Issaquah, where the concert was
being held. The lawn in front of the stage was small
enough that there was practically no such thing as a
bad seat. It was festival-style seating, so we set up
off to one side of the stage until Peter’s set, in the
shade. There was an exhibit of Rock memoribilia
inside the Center itself, which was interesting, and
before the show, we saw Peter walking around quite a
bit. We didn’t go up to talk to him because we didn’t
want to pester him. Later, when Peter started,
Martha, Belle, and I sat dead center, about 30 ft from
Peter himself. It was an excellent concert! Peter
sounded great, played well, and joked with his band.
They told stories about people asking for autographs,
Peter told a few lame jokes (“A skeleton walks into a
bar and asks for a beer and a mop..”), and he played a
few Monkees songs. He played Last Train to
Clarksville, A Little Bit Me A Little Bit You, I’m a
Believer, and Daydream Believer in between some great
blues and rock songs. After the performance, Peter
signed autographs. After autographs were signed,
Peter posed for pictures with fans. It was great. I
never thought I’d get a hug from a Monkee, and I’ll
always have the photos and memories. The Shoe Suede
Blues were excellent, and I recommend that everyone go
see them if the opportunity ever arises!

Concert photos can be seen on my website, GCF. or
