Snap Scene: The Monkees, Palais Theatre – 15th June 2019

Mike Nesmith recently announced on Facebook that the Australian Tour in June will likely be the final shows he will perform as part of The Monkees.

He said, “The shows are fun, the songs are good and fun to play, but things are a bit long of tooth now – not that that is a bad thing, but it’s a bit like trying to learn new dance steps.

Mike added in a recent interview, “It’s a big set list. It’s every Monkees hit, material from the vaults, it’s all coming out and if you love The Monkees music, you can’t do better than this. This is the best it has ever sounded to me.”

Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz performed all their hits with The Monkees spanning more than 50 years. As well as all of those marvellous Mike and Micky hit singles, this was the first time Mike has appeared in Australia or New Zealand since the release of his 1977 “Live At The Palais”.
