Concert Gallery: The Monkees at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT
Hey Hey We’re The Monkees! It’s hard to believe that The Monkees (The worlds first boy band maybe? hmmm) have been at it for over 45 years but it’s true!! Three of the original Monkees members (Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork) announced this year that they would be putting together a very special tour called “An Evening with The Monkees – The 45th Anniversary Tour“. The tour got under way at the beginning of June in Florida and will run through August.
The show is a multimedia delivery of songs, nostalgia and all around fun. Covering songs everyone knows and loves to rare tracks, they audiences will help celebrate nearly a half-century of the band’s legacy. The trio performs their mega-hits including “I’m a Believer,””Last Train to Clarksville,” “Daydream Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” “Valleri” and, for the first time ever onstage, songs from their classic albums and rarely heard selections from their cult classic movie, Head.
It’s a show that pleases fans of all ages new and old..so check it out when they come to your town! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity! For a full list of remaining tour dates visit the band’s official website.
