The Monkees – Good Times: The 50th Anniversary Tour
The Monkees are ready to have some fun this year as the iconic band celebrates its 50th anniversary with a tour and the group’s first new album in 20 years, appropriately titled GOOD TIMES!
In addition to the new album GOOD TIMES, produced Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork will launch a Monkees 50th Anniversary Tour. The jaunt boasts nearly 50 North American dates through the end of the year including a stop at the City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, October 21. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 11 at noon.
During the band’s time together, The Monkees amassed a dozen Top 40 hits, including a trio of tunes that soared to #1. Between September 1966 and December 1967, “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” and “Daydream Believer” collectively occupied the top position for 12 weeks. Sales of their LPs were more phenomenal still: The Monkees occupied the #1 position for 13 consecutive weeks, and More Of The Monkees for 18 weeks. Both Headquarters and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. went to the top as well, for a four-in-a-row feat in the incomprehensible space of 13 months. The final tally: 16 million albums and 7.5 million singles sold in a mere 2 1/2 years.
