      As Long as they have the opening act of Bananarama, I would love to see this.

    I think it's pretty neat--I loved them when I was a kid, so it'd be fun to see them perform again!

    As far as being are the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and a few others I can think of! lol

    Too bad Mike Nesmith isn't joining them, though...

    How fun to see a picture of the Monkees.  I have fond memories of pretending to be this band with my friends.  I was Peter.  The show was so campy, but now I am getting the urge to go find an old episode.

    I say never to old to go on tour.

        Hey hey don't tell anyone, but I like the Rolling Stones too.  Well, some of their stuff is disgusting (lol) but I do admire Jagger's raw talent.   If the man ever got born again, imagine him being crazy and struttin' (in more clothing of course and without the lewd lip movements) for the Lord!
        But that's just a wild hope of mine.

        Are you a Stones fan?
        I think the song of theirs that's most memorable to me is one about facing temptation, actually.....
        "I see the girls go by dressed in their Sunday clothes...
        I have to close my eyes until my darkness goes..."

        Or maybe it's "summer clothes".....something like that anyway.

          Yes, I like the Stones, too.  It was great to see Mick on the Grammies this year.

          And, I have to say, you have given me the wildest image so far this year -- Mick Jagger struttin' for the Lord!  LOL!  smile

    I loved the Monkees as a kid.  I got to meet Mikey Dolenz at a car show in the late 80s.  William Shattner (Star Trek) was there too.  I got autographs from both of them too.  Both super nice gentlemen.

    I'll tell you a fun "old" group to catch in concert is Three Dog Night.  They put on a fantastic show that will keep you on your feet.  You just can't sit through it.  They have so many great hits.

      They sure do.  Just an Old Fashioned Love Song, One (is the Loneliest number), Mamma Told Me Not to Come, etc.
      And the Moody Blues were another favorite of mine. I went to one of their concerts years ago.

    I guess I can see how some people would enjoy seeing them.  They're certainly harmless and upbeat.  For me, though, they're kind of a "that-was-then/this-is-now" kind of thing".

    Those of us "of a certain age" have Monkees' songs imprinted on our brains. You just can't be unhappy or low when humming (or singing) "Last Train to Clarksville" or "Daydream Believer" or "I'm a Believer" or any of their fun, up-tempo songs.

    However, I don't think I could stomach watching 5 minutes of their show at my age. Kinda like the Adam West "pow, boffo" Batman series of the same era. Waayy too campy and manic for moi.

    We were sitting in the neat little garden in front of our naval barracks, the foliage a deep green, the mild evening Sun enveloping the trees and jasmine vines, the 4 of us with the day's issue of rum in our hands. Twilight was very soon going to swallow the Sun's rays.  A steady, cool breeze was  caressing us and glasses in our hands.

    BBC's music program was about to come on. We erupted in joy when Elvis started Warden Threw A party.... and we were just high enough to enjoy the music. The last song was announced and it was something no one had heard before.

    The Monkees came on with "We were made for Each other" and the sheer melody and the synchronicity of  Davy's vocals and the instruments made the conversation peter off.  We were high enough to shed our inhibitions and let go and cry at the good music.  By the time the song ended, Silence ruled.  Somebody switched off the radio. 

    Oh, memories...  Thank you, Monkees, May God bless you.

    The Monkees were a cool group. I loved them as a child. I don't know what material they would be coming with now - just have to wait and see if my infatuation is still there.
