8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: When four young men were cast in the television roles of a struggling rock band inspired by The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night, few could have predicted the impact The Monkees would make on music and pop culture at large, an impact that still reverberates 50 years later. The quartet of Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and the late Davy Jones brought a singular mix of pop, rock, psychedelica, Broadway, and country to their music.
The Monkees' first single, "Last Train to Clarksville," was released in August 1966, hitting #1 and serving as advance publicity for their new TV series. More hit singles followed with "I'm a Believer," "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone," "Daydream Believer," "Valleri," and many others, all finding their way into the Billboard Top 40.
In the wake of Jones's death in 2012, the surviving members of the Monkees reunited and performed a series of sold-out concerts. Now, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork carry on that tradition with a full evening of magic music and multi-media splendor, including clips from their Emmy Award winning series. Their new show features all of the Monkees hits, plus an intimate acoustic set and solo spots for each of the singers.
