The Monkees reform for 45th anniversary
Date Posted: 22/02/11
The Monkees are reforming to celebrate their 45th anniversary with a string of UK dates.
Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork made their name in the 60s with hits like Daydream Believer, Last Train to Clarksville and I'm a Believer having formed in Los Angeles in the mid-part of the decade.
Fans can book Liverpool hotels and catch their performance at the Echo Arena on Thursday May 12th before they head to Manchester and Newcastle.
Appearances will follow at Glasgow's SECC & Clyde Auditorium and at London's Royal Albert Hall, before they travel round the UK to Sheffield, Birmingham, Plymouth, Cardiff and Nottingham.
Front man Davy Jones told BBC Radio 5 Live that the demand for The Monkees is still apparent: "There's an audience for everything. We tour and we have our own careers. The records are being played all the time. The fans are still there ... So why not?"
