I can't believe the Monkees are going on tour in the UK. I guess they have 10 shows planned. It's in honor of their 45th anniversary.

I would love to go, but seeing that I live in IL it will not be happening. Bummer.

I wonder if they will tour the US? I saw them back in 1985 or 1986.

Did one look old? I did not recognise them first of all. Think I would rather go and watch Squeeze at Rochester Castle Gardens this summer!

My mate worked in a quiet little pub in the new forest, so during the uni holidays I used to go over and sit in the bar whilst he was serving ( seemed rude not to) and keep him company. Davy Jones sat next to me and I bought him a pint and we nattered for most of the afternoon, said he couldn't see any reunion happening back then but it was the early 90's

Ha, I had just been looking at the website for tour dates. Sadly, I can't go to any. :(
How is it that I can still remember and sing all of their early songs but I can't remember what I did last week? :lol:

The blonde one (Peter i think his name is) has changed such alot! Mickey is doing Hairspray at the moment, going to see it in April and i think he is still in it then!

:lol: he was in there most days, he often nodded hello after that but he was usually with someone far more interesting.

Me too. Throughout all of my house moves, I have managed to keep hold of issues 2,3 &4 of The Monkees Monthly fanzine from 1967.

Another Wow! That would be so neat to see those! My aunt and I would watch the show...of course at that time it was on reruns.

I guess Davy Jones was in Indiana in January, just a few miles from my aunt and she missed him! I know he usually attends the concerts in WDW during May. I would love to go then to see him too.

There is one on Ebay, but I wouldn't buy it as it's not as good as having the ones that I bought all those years ago when I was in love with Davy. :hearts:
