Hey, hey, it’s The Monkees! 45 years after their groundbreaking show and hit singles took televisions and record players by storm, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are on the road, with a new tour to dazzle five decades’ worth of fans. An Evening with The Monkees – The 45th Anniversary Tour is the first live performance by the band in a full decade. And they hit Tacoma’s Pantages Theater on Saturday, July 8th.
Audiences will get a multimedia experience celebrating the band’s legacy. Jones, Dolenz and Tork will appear to perform their mega-hits including “I’m a Believer,”“Last Train to Clarksville,” “Daydream
Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”. The Beatles were one of The Monkees’ biggest supporters with John Lennon naming them “the Marx Brothers of Rock”. In fact in 1967, The Monkees outsold both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones combined.
According to Rolling Stone, this tour is “…[A]n excellent show from a legendary pop band giving out much, much, much more than they had to.” Tickets are $69, $79, $89, $175. The $175 price gets you a post-show Meet & Greet for VIP guests. Includes appetizers and one free beverage coupon.
