Monkees Oz Tour Announced!

0

On September 8, 1965, when producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider placed a classified ad in The Hollywood Reporter seeking “4 insane boys”, they had no idea that they were about to unleash Monkee-mania! But that’s exactly what happened the following year when the first episode of The Monkees debuted on NBC on September 12, 1966.

50 years later – and in the wake of global acclaim for their new album Good Times! – The Monkees 50th Anniversary show is coming to Australia and New Zealand.

Good Times!, their first new album in nearly 20 years, debuted at #20 on the Australian charts and at #6 on the US Billboard Top Album Chart, the band’s highest chart position in the US since 1968. Rolling Stone calls Good Times! The Monkees’ “best since the sixties”, while the New York Times says “50 years later, The Monkees are still endearing”. After sold-out North American shows, and with Good Times! in the charts, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are bringing the Monkees magic Down Under.

“We’re coming out to Australia and New Zealand and it’s the first time I’ve been back since the 80s and I can’t wait!” said Micky Dolenz at the tour’s announcement.
