Shoe Suede Blues w/ Peter Tork
Summer 2002 Tour Info!


From: “Sally Carpenter”

TVLand begins airing The Monkees series this Friday and Saturday mornings,
May 31 and June 1, at 1:30 am. Check your local paper for correct air time
in your time zone. Last week while watching “Batman” on TVLand I saw a
commercial for the weekend “Kitchen”, a two hour block of shows “too odd to
show anywhere else”. The “Kitchen” block consists of two episodes of Mary
Hartman, Fernwood 2night (the Mary Hartman spinoff) and The Monkees. The
commercial I saw had two very brief clips from the Monkees show. One clip
seemed to be from the Christmas Show of the guys jumping on the bandstand
for “Simon Says.” The other clip was a two shot of Davy and Peter from one
of the shows, but I didn’t catch what Davy said.

Brady Bunch
Getting Davy Jones
30 min.
Hey! Hey! She’s a Brady—Marcia, that is, and she’s the president of the
local Davy Jones fan club in this episode (originally telecast Dec. 10,
1971, and named by TV Guide among the 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time).
Marcia brashly promises to get the singer to perform at her prom and is
panicked when it looks like Jones won’t be able to appear. But with the
help of her siblings, Marcia finally gets her man. The unstated joke, of
course, is the show’s choice of teen idols. The Monkees split up two years
before the episode was shot, and Jones was trying to jump-start a solo
career. But that terminal unhipness is precisely why we love The Brady Bunch.

This article appears in the CBS Soaps in Depth June 4, 2002 issue. It
features an article on Micky Dolenz appearance on ATWT slated for May 31st
and June 3rd 2002.

A Special Visitor At Bonnie’s Wedding!!

If you thought acting was so easy that even a monkey could do it… Well,
your sort of right! Mickey Dolenz (they had to misspell it), member of the
1960’s TV rock band The Monkees, will preside over Bonnie and Ian’s nuptials
on Friday, May 31st, and Monday June 3.

The In Depth Story: When ATWT needed a vicar for its scottish wedding,
one time Hermans Hermit’s leader Peter Noone (Paddington) not only suggested
longtime pal and fellow ’60s rocker Dolenz for the role, but rang him up
personally to suggest the gig.
After all, the two have been friends for decades, ever since meeting in
England, where Dolenz was doing publicity for The Monkees series. “Peter came
by with– he says– John Lennon and George Garrison,” Dolenz relates with a
chuckle. “And fortunately, I guess I was polite!”
When suprised by daytime’s frantic pace, Dolenz, who has produced and
directed TV in the UK, wasn’t entirely out of his element. Yet the role did
pose its challenges. “The toughtest thing is all those lines!” he exclaims.
“I didn’t have that many, but some of those people, it’s unbelievable. They
must have photographic memories!”
Although Dolenz didn’t recieve any advice from Daughter Ami, watching her
play a candy striper on GH years years ago did introduce him to soaps. And
while his ATWT stint is brief, he wouldn’t object to a long term run. “I
don’t know how they would create a recurring role for the vicar,” he laughs.
“But with all the marriages on soaps…” Anything can happen

There is also a picture of him with Peter Noone in this. Micky looks so odd
as a vicar.

ago … these two are still touring. As Said by Davy and Micky they are
still doing it because they love it. Lets keep em loving it. They also said
a date (and I dont know if you have this one yet, but) California june 14th.

Chicago Trib that Micky Dolenz is going to be playing Vicar when
Bonnie and Ian prepareto tie the knot on As The World Turns…

Maxim magazine. There is a one page article about the
Scooby Doo series titled “Mystery Guests”. Davy was
interviewed and there’s a small picture.

Thought I would share with you my experiences from the Monkees concert last
night. It was wonderful!

My husband and I arrived in Louisville around 1030 in the morning from
Indianapolis. We scoped out the seating field where the concert was to be
and began the head of the line around noon. If you were there, we had a
poster that said “I’m Goin Down”. Someone else there had a poster that said
I can sing I’m goin’ Down.

Anyway, all was well. This group called King Kong opened. The lead
player/singer looked like he was bored and it was past his bedtime. It was a
young kid. He did a good job, the music was something like what you would
hear on the Dr. Demento show. King Kong’s set was cut short because of
lightening. Fans were told they could go to the tents for shelter, and some
did go, but, many did not go because it was general seating in a field, and,
well, quite frankly no one wanted to loose their seats! I was front and
center. We just put up the umbrella, put on rain gear, and stayed put.

When Barry Williams came out, the crowd was thrilled. Barry opened with a
song about the Rain being gone, and then sang a song about Sunshine. His
timing on those songs couldn’t have been better, since most of the crowd was
drenched. I felt badly for those on blankets, they were soaked and the
security people kept telling everyone to sit down. After Barry sang a bunch
of oldies and the Greg Brady song, he went to the merchandise tent to sign
autographs. I didn’t go there, because they said the Monkees were going to
start really soon.

So, here is the set list, I got a copy from a Roadie named Eric..Thanks Eric!

Last Train to Clarksville
Little Bit Me
Girl I knew
Randy Scouse Git
Mary Mary
Nice To Be With You

think they didn’t play it because they had to shorten the show due to the
Meatloaf/Micky..I don’t know what this is???
Papa Gene’s Blues
No Time

That was Then
Since I fell for you
I wanna be free

Pleasant Vally SUnday

Okay, The concert was wonderful! The guys did a great job! Davy was dancing
all over the stage, more than I have noticed in the past, even.

Micky started the show with, look at the crowd, They’re Dripping wet! And we
were, it was still sprinkling. Micky and Davy were well rehearsed with their
moves and their dancing. Most of the dity’s were the same. Much of the
banter was eliminated though, I think that it is because they didn’t know how
much they were going to be able to be on. Also, at the end, the announcers
said that they had to run and catch a plane. Actually, a Limo pulled up to
the back of the stage to drop them off and stayed there until the concert was
over. Barry Williams drove himself there. We saw him come in the zoo, he
was running late.

When Davy sang Love you forever, he dedicated it to his four daughters all
over the world, to a couple of friends that were on the side of the stage,
and to Leslie. Okay, who is Leslie?

Throughout the concert there would be times when a girl would rush the stage
to give Davy a flower and then, they would kiss Davy on the Cheek. Girls
were getting lots of thrills from that. One chick near us made an eggplant
design thing for Davy with glow in the dark stuff on it. She said that she
knew Davy and was able to call in and talk to him on the radio. I believe
the part about calling in on the radio…The first time she tried to get on
stage, two security guards intercepted her, and one of them pushed her onto
the ground…NOT NICE. Zoo sercurity! She was just trying to give Davy his
present. She wasn’t rushing the stage, or causing any trouble. The way the
stage was set up, there was a platform in front of the stage, so you couldn’t
really get close. Security was on the edges, not allowing anyone to give the
guys flowers, or anything, So, there was no choice for others but to run up
the platform. It was almost a game between two security guards and hundreds
of Monkees screaming girls.

The guys didn’t come out on the platform and noone got to sing Goin’ Down
with micky. The platform was not under cover, and it was soaked. I hope to
get my pics up on the web this week, and I’ll send out an email when I do. I
thought they played just as much as other concerts, but the banter was less,
in the interest of time. It was wonderful!

Okay, merchandise was outrageously expensive.

Ball caps $25
T-shirts $30
key chains (2 different kinds) $8
Posters $10
Monkees CD of Toronto $15
Barry Williams CD $10
Stuffed Monkees $20
Babydoll T(just a sleeveless Tshirt with the Pieces, Capricorn record cover)

Okay, I have only been home six hours now, but I gotta go to work…Pray for
my patients! Katherine

Hey Brad!
I just wanted to let you know that Davy was in my
hometown of Richmond, VA today. He threw out the 1st
pitch of the Richmond Braves game. I was unable to go
see him, but I do believe he is staying around the
area for the next couple days, for anyone in the area
who wants to go on a “davy hunt”. I just wanted to
pass the word! Thanks!
Peace, Love and Monkees,
Lily Adams

Pleasant Valley Sunday…

That’s what it was here in St. Louis, Mo. today when the Monkees played at
the Rib America Festival before a huge crowd of all ages. It’s been 35
years since my sister and I saw them play and it was right across the
street from the arena they were at in 1967. They sounded just as great as
they did then, and we got to be alot closer to the stage today, than we did
back then. That was totally cool! They sang all the great one’s we wanted
to hear and were funny and very entertaining. Afterwards Davy was signing
autographs. Barry Williams (Greg Brady), opened the show, and he sounded
wonderful, too. It was a beautiful, sunny day, with “charcoal burning,
everywhere” as the song goes, and we were very happy we were able to go.
Thanks, Micky and Davy!
