The Monkees Reuniting for Davy Jones Tribute Tour
The Monkees Reunion Tour Will Remember Davy Jones
The Monkees are set to hit the road again in 2012 for a new tour that pays tribute to bandmate Davy Jones.
This reunion tour includes the return of original member Michael Nesmith, who split from the band in the 70s.
Jones died on February 29, 2012 at age 66.
The surviving Monkees band members are planning a reunion tour, kicking off in the U.S. in November 2012.
The Monkees bandmates, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, will reunite for a tour that's sure to be filled with nostalgic feelings of the 60s, as they're set to sing their hits like Daydream Believer and I'm A Believer.
The Monkees broke up in 1971, when Nesmith left, following a solid career in the mid-60s that included four number one albums.
The members reunited in 1995 for a UK tour and released an album in 1996.
Over the years, they have reunited for tours, but without Nesmith. Most recently, their 2011 tour was cut short because of scheduling issues.
Nesmith noted that the new tour will pay tribute to Jones, as he told Rolling Stone, "David's presence and his past will be throughout the show. He will be missed in his absence, but very much on our minds and in our heart. We will include some of the songs he sang, and do our best."
