The Monkees Considering Another Reunion Tour

The Monkees had a reunion tour last year that ended prematurely after just 43 shows, but bassist/guitarist Peter Tork told Rolling Stone they’re trying to patch things up and get back on tour soon saying, “It would probably be in the next year or two.”  Tork refused to elaborate on what kind of problems torpedoed the last reunion tour saying, ” there were some business affairs that couldn’t be coordinated correctly… I can’t say anything more without getting into the stuff that we have to keep down. We need to work on this stuff outside of the public eye.”

Tork does say the group’s internal problems from the 2001 tour didn’t resurface, noting “Between everybody’s behavior changing enough and restructuring the way that we related to one another . . . We did it all right. We had a good time on stage, laughed and created jokes. Jonsey [Davy Jones] and [Micky] Dolenz are funny guys. Some nights Micky sang [to the tune of ‘I’m A Believer’], ‘I saw her face, not Justin Bieber . . .'”

Peter puts the odds of  himself, Davy and Micky all going back out on tour together at about 50/50.  When it comes to Michael Nesmith, who hasn’t shared the stage with the band since a 1997 U.K. tour, Tork estimates the odds of  Nesmith rejoining the Monkees next tour to be “in the single digits.”  Until tour details are worked out, here’s classic footage of The Monkees:
