2011 – The Monkees announce the bands 45th anniversary tour. Peter Tork, Davey Jones and Micky Dolenz of The Monkees announce the bands 45th anniversary tour at The Groucho Club on February 21, 2011 in London, England.
Ten years earlier, there were problems in the reunion tour where Tork accused Davey and Mickey of drinking too much. Tork changed his story saying, “We were getting along pretty well until I had a meltdown,” he says. “I ticked the other guys off good and proper and it was a serious mistake on my part. I was not in charge of myself to the best of my ability – the way I hope I have become since. I really just behaved inappropriately, honestly. I apologized to them.”
“We’re going to do all the Monkee hits,” Tork says. “Starting with the five major ones: The two believers [‘Daydream Believer’ and ‘I’m A Believer’], ‘Last Train To Clarksville,’ ‘Pleasant Valley Sunday’ and ‘(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone.’ Then we’ll do the top twenties and the top hundreds and then the obscure ones.” Of the many deep cuts to draw from, Tork hopes to revive the a cappella song “Riu Chiu,” and “As We Go Along” and “Porpoise Song” from the Head soundtrack.
