Mike Nesmith will join the Monkees for final 50th anniversary show

"It looks like I’ve made it to the end"

The Monkees‘ Mike Nesmith has announced that he’ll do one more show with fellow Monkees Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork on their 50th anniversary tour.

Nesmith made the announcement on his Facebook page, stating that his appearance on September 16 at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles will be his final performance with the Monkees.

The show will make the third time he’s performed with Dolenz and Tork on the tour, having previously joined them via Skype in New York City on June 1 and on stage in Monterey, California, on Aug 5.


Writing on Facebook, Nesmith said that the appearance “seemed like the right opportunity” to “get together with them as Monkees.”

Continuing he wrote, “I am bringing Gretsch, my beautiful, intelligent blonde to help me, and it looks like I’ll make it once again. I expect it will be fun, and a great way for me to sign out.”

Concluding, he wrote “I see the specter of the multiple Sinatra retirement/farewells — and this seems like the perfect time for me to step off, sit down and shut up. Hope I see you there. No, I don’t have any tickets. What a long strange trip it’s been said TGD — and it looks like I’ve made it to the end.”
