At this point there’s no official word that Michael Nesmith will be joining them but I made a million dollar bet with myself that he would at least make ONE appearance at a show – my guess is Los Angeles or San Francisco. Of course, the Nez heads are all over that one so stay tuned and if we hear anything, we’ll let all of you know!
Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork will both be coming to Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, NJ this April 22-24! They will be performing on the Saturday night with Bobby Hart which is going to be a HUGE treat. They will also be signing autographs and taking photos with fans during the entire weekend so if you’ve never met a Monkee, this is your chance.

I’ll be there that weekend working. And no, I don’t mean “working” as in working the ho stroll trying to get into Micky’s pants (although I wouldn’t put it past me). If you see me running around, stop me and say hello!
And finally, perhaps the biggest news of all.
THE MONKEES ARE RELEASING A BRAND NEW ALBUM!! They have been busy recording in the studio and frankly, the list of songwriters contributing to this album is enough to make your head spin. Finally, the world of popular music is getting their hands in on the Monkees action. As I see multiple articles in the likes of Rolling Stone, all I can think to myself is… “I told you so!”
We as Monkees fans have always known how talented the boys are – not just at singing but with writing, composing, producing and recording music.
Michael Nesmith has joined Peter and MIcky in the studio to record and for more details, CLICK HERE to read Rolling Stone’s article.
“It will feature new songs by Noel Gallagher, Rivers Cuomo, Ben Gibbard and many more. Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne serves as producer on the new LP. “
