Surviving members of sixties pop sensation The Monkees will hit the road on tour again this November in the USA.
Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork will be back in on stage in front of loyal and nostalgic Daydream Believer fans this November.
It's the first time the band have played together since the death of Davy Jones in February.
"This seems like a good time to do this – the right time. Who knows when we will get another chance?" Michael Nesmith told Rolling Stone magazine.
The twelve-date tour kicks off in Escondido, California and takes in LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York.
