On Tour with The Monkees

Have THE MONKEES come to your town yet?

This is what a visit by the fab four is like…

  • Davy Jones
  • Davy Jones
  • Peter Tork, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith
  • Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz
    Here, Davy and Micky check out the auditorium where they’ll be performing that evening. Every stage has its own special problems, which The Monkees have to work out so that their spec sound doesn’t change from city to city. If this groovy tour didn’t convince everyone that each of The Monkees plays their own instruments, then nothing ever will!
  • Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones
    The biggest problem for the guys is coming and going—without getting hurt. In each city, at every show, The Monkees have to scramble for safety. Here, Davy and Micky get ready to rush backstage. Peter, traveling in a second car, can be seen in the background.
  • Mike Nesmith
    Doing two things at once, Mike works on another mike while giving the crowd a quick once-over. Both the microphone and the crowd flipped for Mike!
  • Peter Tork
    Breathless and sweating, Peter pauses for a second on-stage, ready to give the crowd even more madness and music! If you’ve been lucky enough to see it, you know what kind of a great and groovy show they put on!
  • Micky Dolenz
    Responding to the crowd, Micky grabs the microphone off the stand and flips out with another song!

  • Davy Jones
    Tambourine in hand, Davy swings out…
  • Davy Jones
    In a different get-up, Davy keeps go-go-going! Which is really what Davy, Mike, Micky and Peter have been doing all summer!
  • Micky Dolenz
    Micky gets carried away and gives it everything he’s got!
  • Mike Nesmith, Micky Dolenz
    This is what it would look like if you were on stage with The Monkees!
