The Monkees’ Dolenz and Nesmith Add Dates to Farewell Tour

Share This:

Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith have announced four additional dates to their Monkees’ Farewell 2021 Tour. The pair were supposed to begin a tour in April 2020 but the shows were postponed – twice – due to the pandemic. The 2021 run, now with more than three dozen dates is scheduled to begin in September and continue into November, and feature “all the hits, deep cuts, and fan favorites.”

Tickets are available here. The four new performances, announced on May 10, go on sale on May 14. See the itinerary below.

The two remaining members of the famed pop group have toured together in recent years, and released an album in 2020, The Monkees – The Mike & Micky Show Live, a 24-track collection recorded in March 2019. This time, it’ll be the last train to Clarksville for the duo.

The 2020 run was originally billed as “A Night of Magic Music & Memories.” It’s now called ”The Monkees Farewell Tour with Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz.”

Dolenz, who turned 76 on March 8, has a new album coming, his first new solo studio effort in nine years, comprised entirely of songs Nesmith wrote throughout his career. Dolenz Sings Nesmith, produced by Nesmith’s son, Christian Nesmith, comes from 7a Records on May 21, 2021.

Nesmith, who turned 78 last December 30, is the subject of a new release, Different Drum: The Lost RCA Victor Recordings, with 22 tracks drawn from the vaults.

    It says the there’s a date for Sep 19 – Phoenix, AZ – Celebrity Theatre. You click the link for Ticketmaster, says there’s dates playing in AZ?

      Some of the venues apparently don’t use Ticketmaster.

        Correct. The Milwaukee venue doesn’t use Ticketbastard, for instance, so it won’t be on their site. Milwaukee’s Riverside and Pabst Theaters are owned by the same group and do their own ticketing.

        For shows not with TM (B) fans should call the venue or go their website for info.

    North Carolina?
    Greensboro, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte? I’d do anything to go. I’d walk to see Mike and Mickey.
    I understand if you can’t though. ❤❤

    Sad to see M&M hang it up, but Father Time remains undefeated. Looking forward to seeing them in Milwaukee!

    Really, I just hope the pandemic continues to decline and the guys stay healthy. There have been questions about Nez’s recent health. Stay well, guys!
