The Monkees — surviving members Micky Dolenz and Mike Nesmith — have announced the group's farewell tour. The final run of shows will play 20 cities kicking off on September 11th in Seattle, Washington's Moore Theatre, with the tour wrapping on November 10th when the tour hits Kansas City, Missouri's Uptown Theater.
Set for release on May 21st is Micky Dolenz' take on a number of Mike Nesmith's tunes, titled Dolenz Sings Nesmith. The album, which is being released on the Monkees-based rarity label 7a Records, was produced by Nesmith's eldest son Christian Nesmith, who also tours as part of his father and Dolenz' Monkees revue.
Dolenz Sings Nesmith features songs written throughout Nesmith's career — including his Monkees years. It will be released on 180-gram colored vinyl, on CD, as well as on all digital platforms.
