Sole surviving Monkee Micky Dolenz already has several dates on the books for 2022. Dolenz, who is now booking himself as “The Voice Of The Monkees,” wrapped the group's final tour with the late-Mike Nesmith on November 14th at L.A.'s Greek Theatre. Nesmith passed away on December 10th at 78 of heart-related issues. Dolenz has a trio of East Coast double bills with Felix Cavaliere's Rascals.
Dolenz and Cavaliere will play on January 22nd at Manhattan's Palladium Times Square; followed by January 23rd at Lynn, Massachusetts' Lynn Auditorium. The pair just added a May 14th show at Patchogue, New York's Patchogue Theatre.
Micky explained that cross-promoting the Monkees using all the popular mediums of the day was a cutting edge marketing technique that paved the way for how all future pop bands would eventually be sold: “The thing the Monkees did was — the project, not us, four guys — but the Monkees 'project,' was really the first time that the television and radio and record industry had sort of had this convergence. There'd been slight, little bits of crossover here and there; people like Ricky Nelson, y'know, and like, Paul Peterson from The Donna Reed Show, um, but not nearly to the level that happened with the Monkees.”
