After the commercial and artistic success of their 2012 and 2013 tours, the Monkees are taking the show on the road once again. The group have announced a 14-date tour that kicks off in New Hampshire and winds up in Cleveland, Ohio.

“Can’t wait to hang out with Papa Nez and the Torkmiester,” Dolenz said in a press release, “Looking forward to great music, great fun and truck-stop chili dogs at 4 a.m.”

The three surviving members of the legendary act regrouped following the passing of Davy Jones in early-2012. It was the first time Michael Nesmith had joined his mates on a full-fledged U.S. tour since he first left the band in 1970, although he was on a 1997 U.K. tour.  “Happy to be going back out playing the music,” Nesmith said in a press release. “Sure we will have fun.”

The tour was first announced at the recent Monkees Convention in New Jersey. “Why don’t we do a tour?” Dolenz told the convention crowd, “Why don’t we do a tour in the middle of May? Does that sound like a good idea?” Ultimately confirming, “We’re doing it. We are touring.”

In conjunction with the tour, Rhino Records is issuing a deluxe three-disc version of their 1966 debut album. Nesmith is also heading out on his own for a few stops. “I’m off on another solo tour in April and May — Movies of the Mind — before I go out with the Monkees,” he announced on his Facebook page.
