The Monkees Kick Off Tour With Michael Nesmith Back In The Mix
The Monkees kicked off a historic tour on Monday, July 15th, in Port Chester, New York. Fans were treated as it was the first time in years that Michael Nesmith was playing his 12 string Gretsch guitar, with Peter Tork on banjo and Micky Dolenz on drums. It was the first time Nesmith played with the band since 1997 when he performed on handful of European gigs before calling it quits.
Prior to the few dates in 1997, the band hand toured together since the sixties but they decided to give it another go after the tragic death of Davy Jones. They had the opportunity to test the waters with a handful of dates last year.
According to Rolling Stone, the group never mentioned Jones during the show but they did give him a memorial interlude when they left the stage and screened Jones' solo tap-dancing showcase from Head, "Daddy's Song."
