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 Monkees' cult runs deep in the UK, inspiring boy bands everywhere and racking up two more Top 20 albums in 1989 and 1997. Their last tour of the UK in 2011 climaxed with a sold-out show at London's Royal Albert Hall. The forthcoming London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo concert on September 04 will be their first concert since that time and the untimely passing of Davy Jones in February 2012.
The show will include rare films and images from The Monkees' series. Their new show features all of their hits, including Last Train To Clarkesville and Daydream Believer, plus an intimate acoustic set and selections from their cult classic, HEAD. This Evening With The Monkees is sure to be one to remember for fans on every level.
