The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork will be taking off to the Great White North for two exclusive concert dates at Casino Rama in Ontario on April 24 and 25. This announcement comes almost thirteen years to the day of The Monkees’ last dates in Canada on 2002’s Monkeemania tour. The group first performed in Canada in April of 1967 and have enjoyed a loyal following there ever since. However, despite numerous attempts to incorporate Canada into their recent touring schedules, this is their first opportunity to perform for their Canadian fans in over a decade.

New Monkees Tour Dates! May & June 2014

Submitted by rhino on Wed, 03/19/2014 - 12:22pm

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.

Hey, Hey It's The Monkees Convention 2014!

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.
