Final show of Monkees 2012 tour in New York City 12/1/12

Mon Dec 03, 2012 8:44 am

Was lucky enough to get a really good seat at the show without breaking the bank.

Mike Nesmith sounded fabulous, great energy from both Micky and Peter. For a 70 year old that dealt with a bout of cancer Peter is exceptionally lively and funny on stage. Good for him! The set list brought out alot of great stuff that these guys have never done live and there were a few nice tributes to Davy. The only disappointment for me is that they sold out of tour programs by the time I got there, and I didn't get there late! Grrrr, I really wanted one of those. They did alot of songs from 'Head' too. Great show, great to see Nesmith play live.

Great set list. Wish I could have been there. I have been a fan of the Monkees since they started.

Have you heard any of the tracks from the new Micky Dolenz CD "Remember?" Its outstanding-and really the best work he's done aside from the Monkees.

The 30th anniversary shows I caught in England in 1996 featuring all four Monkees were the best live shows I have EVER seen!

Great to see Mike is doing shows with the guys again. He will always be my favourite Monkee.

Great set list - bet it was a joyous night! Must be really weird without Davy though. I can't imagine a Monkees show without him. :(

The more I glance over the setlist from that night, the more I think that it really was the ultimate Monkees show. They dug pretty deep in the repertoire. It seemed like they were out to please the hardcore Monkee fans instead of just doing a greatest hits show. With that said it sucks even more that Davy wasn't around to be involved. Really a shame. He just seemed like a nice guy, didn't he.
