Micky Dolenz, The Last Surviving Monkee, Tours In Honour of His Friends and Band Mates

At age 77, Micky Dolenz is the last surviving member of The Monkees. Davy Jones died 29 February 2012, Peter Tork passed 21 February 2019 and Mike Nesmith died 10 December 2021.

Dolenz started tour his ‘Micky Dolenz Celebrates The Monkees’ shows in March and includes tributes to each of his late friends.

Dolenz, Jones, Tork and Nesmith came together in 1965 for an American television series to capitalize on the success of the Beatles. Initially, the songs were written for the show by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, then additional professional songwriters like Neil Diamond or Neil Sedaka, with instruments played by session musicians but Dolenz, Nesmith and Tork would eventually also perform on Monkees records.

After the show was cancelled in 1968, The Monkees continued on as a real band.
