After the departure of Peter Tork, The Monkees conducted a tour across North America throughout 1969. They were backed by the seven-piece R & B band Sam & The Goodtimers. One concert from this tour (thought to be the May 10, 1969 performance in Wichita, Kansas at the Century II Convention Center) exists as bootleg, and “I’m a Believer” can be heard here. It’s an absolutely horrible recording that I’m only posting for the historical curiosity of it. For years there have been rumors that the band recorded a show on this tour, but no tapes have ever turned up. Please visit my website at www.monkeesconcerts.com.

As The Monkees fought for creative control of their music, tensions began to mount and tempers raged out of control leading to a few “punch-ups”.
