While the UK gets first dibs, The Monkees' 45th anniversary won't be without some live performances in the country that made them famous.
The Monkees are returning to the US this summer July for a 24-date tour, and will be hitting the Beacon Theater in New York , NY showing for one date only on 16 Jun 2011! , Dubbed "A Midsummer's Night With the Monkees." the lineup will comprise the three surviving members; Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork. Following the success of their 2012 reunion engagements, the guys decided to do another for the fans, in the country that cemented their fame, as the unlikely rivals to the Beatles.
The concert will present the Monkees' back catelog in chronological order, making use of archival video and photograph projection to tell their turbulent yet uplifting story. Expect to hear such hits like "Last Train to Clarksville" and "I'm a Believer" before providing the main focus on their 1967 album "Headquarters" and then wrapping up with material from their final albums, such as "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and "Listen to the Band."
They will also be taking the show to Canada, in what will be their first Canadian engagements in over a decade.
