Monkees Announce US Tour -
The Monkees have announced their first live show since the death of Davy Jones in February.

The Monkees will play a varied selection of their biggest hits from their first five albums plus music from their film, 'Head' as well as their TV series. The tour will also be accompanied by a multimedia showcase which will 'highlight' Jones and will feature rare films and photographs.
