The original TV boyband to play in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium on 45th Anniversary Tour.
Here they come, walking down the street…
Legendary 60’s popstars The Monkees take to the stage in May to celebrate their 45th Anniversary. They are back together for their first UK tour in 12 years.
Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork return to perform in front of their British fans. The Monkees, responsible for some of the biggest hits of the 60’s, will be touring the country with one memorable night in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium.
Having written the script for modern day pop music, the Monkees truly were original TV boy band, and are the example to all those who have since found musical fame via television.
Selling 50 million records with hits such as ‘Last Train to Clarksville’, ‘Daydream Believer’, ‘A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You’, ‘I’m a Believer’ and ‘(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone’, The Monkees provided the soundtrack to teenage lives on both sides of the Atlantic from the 60’s onwards.
Created in LA in 1966 for the American TV series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968, the musical acting quartet was composed of Americans Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, and Englishman Davy Jones. Although it was cancelled in 1968, the TV series was repeated throughout the 1980’s, and a whole new legion of fans were exposed to their crazy antics.
Although originally created for TV, The Monkees eventually broke their shackles and became a respected band in their own right, embedded in the revolutionary 1960’s pop fraternity. Following the TV show, the band went on to tour the world, releasing hit albums and singles and inspiring generations of bands to follow their winning formula.
Don’t miss your chance to see the seminal TV show band ‘sing and play’ as The Monkees celebrate over four decades at the top at the SECC Clyde Auditorium on 16th May 2011.
