Hi Gang
Its good to see the Monkees back on the road. I missed them the last time they were here in the UK' sadly not the four' but they still sound great.
During their show the Monkees use every piece of the stage and give it 150%.
Good Luck To The Three of Them.
Keep on Rockin
Phil

Hi I have been a fan of the Monkees since the beginning and am delighted that the guys have decided to tour together again. I have seen them perform as the original four, just three of them, just two and I have since solo shows. They always put on a goog performance no matter what. I am only going to two shows this time, which I am looking forward to loads. I know they will put on a lively performance for us. thanks.

I've been a fan since 1966. At the time I was only 8 years old. I 1st saw THE MONKEES live in 1986 for their 20th anniversary show in Albany, Georgia, USA. Went to Chicago in 1988 for Monkees Convention. Have tickets to see them in Clearwater, Florida, USA in June. This will be my 8th Monkees concert. Growing up on a farm in the south, I could only dream of being at a Monkees concert in the 60's. I feel blessed that I've meet all 4 down thru the years. Their music has always been a part of my life. I want to thank Davy, Micky & Peter for doing this for the true fans one more time. I hope that in the near future they will be inducted into the ROCK-N-ROLL HALL OF FAME IN CLEVELAND. I will not visit it until THE MONKEES ARE OFFICIALLY IN! These guys have never received the recognition they deserve. I wish THE MONKEES A SUCESSFUL TOUR IN THE UK & AMERICA!!

Always loved their music. Forget that they didn't play or write early on; the music still sounds as "Fab" as ever on disc.Interesting that I don't like Neil Diamond's own records, but I love the writing contribution he made for The Monkees. Saw them at Portsmouth (In the 80s). C'mon Mike we know you're fabulously wealthy from correction-fluid and MTV, but rejoin the others, for our sakes if not yours.

I've been a Monkees fan for a long time[I'm now 61] I saw them in 1967 at Wembley and 1997 in Bournemouth. There were 4 of them ,but now there's only 3. As far as i'm concerned the monkees are a foursome not a trio.So sorry. I can't get excited about this latest tour.I'll remember them how they used to be.
