The Monkees with Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz to tour Australia in 2019

David Roy Williams will tour The Monkees in Australia again in 2019 but this time Mike Nesmith is coming.

The last Australia tour featured Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork. Nesmith has not been to Australia since his solo tour of 1977.

I love being on stage with Micky,” says Nesmith. “We’ve been collaborating for over 50 years, so it’s hard to believe it’s never been just the two of us. I’m excited to dust off some tunes that I haven’t played for a long time too. These are going to be some fun shows.”

Mike Nesmith wrote many of The Monkees songs including ‘Mary Mary’ and ‘Listen to the Band’.

“Right from the get-go, I admired Mike’s songs. When we used to get together around the campfire to sing in the early days, we were always doing his songs,” says Dolenz. “We always had such a great a vocal blend; he was the one who encouraged me to write songs of my own. I’ve always been a big fan and now we finally get to do the Mike & Micky show that we riffed on back when we were shooting The Monkees.”
