2013-07-15 · By Editor
Join Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork as they return to the stage this summer for their “Midsummer’s Night with the Monkees” tour. The group makes their way to the Terrace Theater on Tuesday, August 13th, 2013, at 8PM.
The trio’s set list will feature a selection of their classic hits (such as “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”), deep cuts from their first five platinum albums (including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s) and fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic Head and their Emmy®-award winning television series. Plus, a few surprises!
The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films, and one-of-a-kind photographs culled from the archives. Backed by the same stellar crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio. This foray into tracks from their 1967 homespun #1 long player, Headquarters, is sure to be among the highlights of the upcoming dates.
“We look forward this summer to hosting one of the most popular American music acts ever,” said Dan Spellens, Director of Theaters & Entertainment for SMG at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. “We are very pleased that The Monkees have chosen to play in Long Beach at the Terrace Theater during their ‘A Midsummer’s Night with the Monkees’ tour,” he concluded.
