The Monkees

Story by Jack Foley

THE Monkees, featuring Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, will perform their first concert in the UK since their sold-out concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011.

The concert will take place at the London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on Friday, September 4, 2015.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 15 from the 24-hour box office at 0844 871 8819 or 0844 249 4300 or by booking online from www.alt-tickets.co.uk or www.eventimapollo.com.

When four young men were cast in the television roles of a struggling rock band inspired by The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night, few could have predicted the impact The Monkees would make on music and pop culture at large, an impact that still reverberates 50 years later.

The Monkees’ cult runs deep in the UK, inspiring boy bands everywhere and racking up two more Top 20 albums in 1989 and 1997. Their last tour of the UK in 2011 climaxed with a sold-out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The forthcoming London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo concert on September 4 will be their first concert since that time and the untimely passing of Davy Jones in February 2012.

Now, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork carry on that tradition with a full evening of magic music and multi-media splendor, including rare films and images from their series.

Their new show features all of the Monkees’ hits, including Last Train To Clarkesville and Daydream Believer, plus an intimate acoustic set and selections from their cult classic, HEAD.

This Evening With The Monkees is sure to be one to remember for fans on every level.
