The surviving members of The Monkees are preparing for a farewell tour this fall. Michael Nesmith is ready to call it a career but Micky Dolenz says he wants to keep going.
On retirement, Dolenz said, “I tried it once, and I got bored,” he told “Closer Weekly. ”He added, “so it’s not in my plans right now.”
The Nesmith-Dolenz farewell tour kicks off September 11th in Seattle. Regarding the tour, Dolenz said, “I think this is the last time Mike and I will get together as The Monkees.”
He added, “We questioned whether we should have even called it The Monkees.” He also said, “It’s a different show because the other two main guys, David [Jones] and Peter [Tork] aren’t with us anymore. So, yes, I think this is probably the last hurrah.”
