The Monkees Have Put Aside Their Differences to Do Another Tour

The Monkees put some previous animosities behind them to do this tour.  The last time they hit the road, which was 10 years ago, things didn’t end well. You may remember that Davy actually got into a fist fight with a crew member after their appearance in Lubbock. I got to witness the altercation and…I must say…it was AWESOME!

Anyway, Peter Tork raised a stink about all the drinking Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz were doing.  And those two had issues too, with Davy saying in 2009 that he couldn’t imagine ever taking the stage with Micky again.

But Peter is now taking the blame for their problems on the last tour saying, quote, “We were getting along pretty well until I had a meltdown.  I ticked the other guys off good and proper and it was a serious mistake on my part.”

Founding guitarist Michael Nesmith will not be a part of this reunion.  He wasn’t involved with the 2001 tour either and has only toured with The Monkees once over the past 20 years.  He joined them for a U.K. tour in 1997.

(One of the reasons he’s not interested is because his mother invented Liquid Paper, and left him with a fortune, so he doesn’t need the money.)

You can see all the dates, here.
