Michael Nesmith reunites with The Monkees
Rolling Stone reports that Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork will hit the road for a 12-date trek that will incorporate late member Davy Jones, who died in February, in the show's multimedia content.
Nesmith has been estragned from his bandmates since their acrimonious split in 1997.
"I never really left," he told the magazine. "It is a part of my youth that is always active in my thought and part of my overall work as an artist. It stays in a special place, but like things in the past it fades in and out in relevance to activities that are current. Getting together with old friends and acquaintances can be very stimulating and fun and even inspiring to me. We did some good work together and I am always interested in the right time and the right place to reconnect and play."
The tour starts in Escondido's California Center for the Arts on November 8 and wraps up in New York City's Beacon Theatre on December. No Canadian dates have been announced. The band will play a seletion of hits, deeper cuts and music from the film Head and their TV show.
