Dolenz-Nesmith Tour In 2018

By Fred Velez

According to reports from Michael Nesmith’s appearance at the Chiller Theater Convention the weekend of October 27-29, there are apparent plans for not only a reunion and tour of the First National Band, but also a joint tour of Nesmith with Micky Dolenz.

Convention promoter Jodi Ritzen addressed the rumors on her Facebook page:

It is so much easier to address this rumor here. Is it true Nez told pretty much everyone at Chiller about two exciting events scheduled for 2018? The answer is YES!

Nez made no secret that we will see two shows come together.

First expect The First National Band to reform with two additional Nesmiths. Second was the combination of Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith somewhere close to summer.

If Nez told you, give me a hell yeah and your reaction.

Now I personally cannot help you with dates or cities. No need to send me your requests. I have no information on meet and greets and won’t until details are released.

Your best bet is to subscribe to my website for updates.

They may be coming to your town.

Thanks Nez!!

MICHAEL NESMITH OFFICIALLY ADDED AS SPECIAL GUEST FOR MICKY DOLENZ’S TWO L. A. SHOWS NEXT WEEK – CANYON CLUB (10-20) AND SABAN (10-21)

New York – Micky Dolenz, lead singer of The Monkees, has announced a
special guest for his two L. A. shows next week … fellow-Monkee
Michael Nesmith. The two shows are at The Canyon Club (10-20) and The Saban Theatre (10-21).

Nesmith, who will be joined by his son Christian (and, musical partner Circe Link) will also appear.

This will be the first time the two have appeared together since a Monkees 50th Anniversary tour last year.

Dolenz quote: “It’s always special to play with Nez; let the Good Times continue!”

Dolenz, Nesmith (and, Peter Tork) released the album Good Times (Rhino
Records) last year, which was the group’s first album of new material in 25 years. It was a major success and listed on most reviewers Top Ten lists.

The October 21st Saban Theatre concert will also feature performances by Felix Calvaliere of The Rascals and Marty Ross formerly of the New Monkees. Davy Jones first wife Linda and his daughters Talia, Sarah and Annabel will be attending the October 20th Canyon Club show.

There will be Meet & Greets for both concerts. More details at the following link: Monkees Meet and Greets

Extra! Nez & Micky Skype Monkee Jam!

Reported by Fred Velez

The Monkee Jam fan convention at the Clarion Empire Hotel in Seacaucus, NJ received a special surprise when Micky Dolenz did a pre-recorded Skype introduction for Romeo Delight, the Van Halen tribute band led by his brother-in-law Buddy Blanch.

Later in the evening before Circe Link and Christian Nesmith started their set, Christian did a Skype call to his father Michael Nesmith who said hello to the delighted fans and introduced Christian and Circe’s set. Christian also coax the fans to let Nez know what they thought of the success of the Monkees Good Times album to which they responded with rousing cheers and applause which Nesmith humbly appreciated. Kudos to convention organizer Jodi Ritzen for setting up this delightful surprise.

Monkees live 1969 bootleg – I’m a Believer

May 28, 2012 by  
Filed under tv


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.
