Dolenz and Nesmith, June 3, 2018

In addition to the four previously announced dates rescheduled when Michael Nesmith underwent surgery last summer, he and fellow Monkees member Micky Dolenz have now added several new dates to their 2019 itinerary. The entire tour schedule is below, including the four rescheduled shows.

Their schedule now includes newly added dates in Australia and New Zealand, beginning June 8 in Christchurch. Scroll down for all new dates.

As we posted in August, less than two months after the final four dates of “The Mike and Micky Show” tour were postponed due to what was described last June as a “minor health issue” affecting Michael Nesmith, he and Dolenz formally announced the rescheduled dates for March 2019.

Of course, we now know that Nesmith’s condition was far from “minor”: the musician revealed that he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and underwent quadruple bypass heart surgery shortly thereafter.

At the time of the cancellations, the band’s tour manager, Andrew Sandoval, posted on Facebook that they would take place in January 2019. “Michael Nesmith has not been feeling well and will be recuperating in the meantime. We will return to the good clean fun as soon as possible.”

Just before the spring tour’s final performance on June 20, Nesmith revealed “I couldn’t breathe. So I sat down until I got my breath and then I realized the breath wasn’t gettable. That marked the end. People knew I couldn’t keep on like this. It was a road to hell.”

Watch them perform “I’m a Believer” on June 3, 2018
