hey,hey we're the Monkees, and people say we monkey around..but we're too busy singing,
to put anybody down..
http://www.upi.com/Entertainment_News/M … 298316685/
when is too old to tour,too old/..I liked them ,even though they were originally a faux band made up for TV..but they are long in the tooth,nowadays...
this really shows someones age doest it ?????but love them just the same....i think my late father loved this show on thurs nights ...very new idea for tv at the time ...the music was so fun..and loved mickey the most..
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 old...well...so are the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and a few others I can think of!
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.
There they'll go walkin' down the street
They'll get the funniest looks from ..everyone they meet.
Hey hey they're the Monkees...
haha I used to love their show....
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.
I love The Monkees and will DEFINITELY be getting tickets to see them on this tour - on top of that, I think I'll go and watch an episode now!
there like the 3 stooges of music! i use to listen to them when i was little hey hey were the monkees lol
I LOVE The Monkees! I wonder if they've got any dates near me....
Didn't one of them die? wasn't it Micheal Nessmith or Peter Torck?
I really liked them too. grew up with their show lol lol
That would be a FUN concert! I want to go! Thank you for the info!
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.
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".
Probably close to it.
Time waits for no one, no not even you...or me....
Don't that just stink?
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.

Who is the best - The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Bob Dylan, Elvis, Sinatra or MJ?You must have heard that all of them were at the top of the music industry during their heyday. So here is the real question. Who do you think is the best of them all?

So which band was better, The Beatles or The Stones?Oft asked, frequently analyzed, never proven, this question deserves more characters than you can fit into an Answer window.
