Between Rhino Handmade reissuing The Monkees Present and Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork taking the stage together and touring throughout July and August, the summer of 2013 provided Monkees fans a couple of pretty great months. After that, though, the guys went their separate ways – maybe you caught Mr. Nesmith on his solo tour a few months back – so it’s been pretty quiet on the Monkees front.
If you’re in desperate need of a fix, then you’d better check your calendar and see what you’ve got going on between March 14 – 16 that you’re going to have to cancel, because that’s when the Monkees’ Official 2014 Convention – a co-presentation between Then and Now Productions and your friends here at Rhino – takes place in at the Hilton Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The two biggest reasons to attend? Both Mr. Dolenz and Mr. Nesmith will be there.
We're also premiering another new track from PRESENT (DELUXE EDITION) - "Bye Bye Baby Bye Bye (Mono Mix)"! Click here to listen now.
