Nez To Join Monkees For September 16th Show!
Reported by Fred Velez
On his Facebook page Michael Nesmith announced that he will be joining Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork at their September 16th Monkees concert at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles, California. According to the post, this will be the only show Nesmith will be participating for the remainder of the Monkees 50th anniversary tour.
Been talking to Micky and Peter about the Los Angeles Pantages Monkees concert and have agreed to come down to play that show with them. They are putting together a world tour after that — off to Australia and New Zealand, and other points global in what sounds like a great time.
I, on the other hand, will be starting my “Infinite Tuesday” book tour in the first quarter of 2017, as well as some solo concerts, and other projects that will make it not possible to be with them on that tour. So this seemed like the right opportunity for me to get together with them as Monkees.
The show is set for September 16th — which I believe is almost a perfect match for the fifty year anniversary of the TV show — at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. I am bringing Gretsch, my beautiful, intelligent blonde to help me, and it looks like I’ll make it once again.
I expect it will be fun, and a great way for me to sign out. I see the specter of the multiple Sinatra retirement/farewells — and this seems like the perfect time for me to step off, sit down and shut up.
Hope I see you there. No, I don’t have any tickets. What a long strange trip it’s been said TGD — and it looks like I’ve made it to the end.
