Following their sold-out 2012 fall tour, The Monkees are returning to Las Vegas. Dubbed “A Midsummer’s Night With The Monkees,” the tour features all remaining members of the band’s original lineup including Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork. The Monkees will perform at the Grand Events Center inside Green Valley Ranch Resort Saturday, August 10 at 8 p.m.
The trio’s set list will feature a selection of their classic hits, such as “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” as well as deep cuts from their first five platinum albums, including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s. The show will also include fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic “Head” and their Emmy-award winning television series.
The show will encompass a full multi-media evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs culled from the archives. Backed by the same stellar crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio. This foray into tracks from their 1967 homespun number one long player, Headquarters, is sure to be among the highlights of the upcoming dates.
