On last night’s TONIGHT SHOW on NBC, Monkees’ Micky Dolenz made a special appearance, sitting in with the show’s house band, The Roots. Check out the appearance at left!
This July, Micky Dolenz appeared in his new show “A Little Bit Broadway, A Little Bit Rock ‘n’ Roll” at New York’s 54 Below. The show combined his love of Broadway with his love for rock ‘n’ roll and included some of the Monkees greatest hits, a few rarities and songs from musical roles he has performed and from shows he loves.
Dolenz is best known as the lead singer of the hugely successful rock ‘n’ roll band, The Monkees, which originated from the classic sixties TV show of the same name. The Monkees sold over 65 million records and has toured the U.S. (and much of the world) many times over.
Micky has also starred in musicals on Broadway, the West End, and in national tours including Disney’s AIDA (Broadway), Pippin, Hairspray (West End), Grease, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Tom Sawyer, and more.
Micky has recorded two solo albums (Remember and King For A Day) and recently appeared in the world premiere of the new play Comedy Is Hard (Ivoryton Playhouse) by four-time Emmy winner Mike Reiss (The Simpsons).
