A great deal of fun was had by the The Monkees and their fans during the course of the group’s 2014 official convention this past weekend, including Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork all being on hand to receive their plaques certifying the The Monkees’ induction into the American Pop Music Hall of Fame. Arguably the most tantalizing tidbit to emerge from the event, however, was the announcement that the trio would be kicking off a new tour in May, one which would be taking them along the east coast and through the Midwest.
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.
