The Monkees reform for 45th anniversary tour

This is actually pretty cool because I loved the show- I only found out they weren't a real band and started as a TV show when I was older...It's a shame they won't be touring in the US because this is something I would pay to go see...I grew up singing every song listed below and I'm pretty sure I once announced I was going to marry Davy Jones.

The pop/rock group ' who were created to appear in their own TV show in the 60s ' will play their first shows in the UK for 12 years, including one night at historic London venue the Royal Albert Hall.

Original members Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork will celebrate the milestone year by playing their best loved hits, including 'Daydream Believer', 'Last Train to Clarksville' and 'I'm a Believer', over 10 nights and the tour will kick off at Liverpool Echo Arena on May 12.

The band ' which also included Michael Nesmith in the original line-up ' starred in 'The Monkees' TV series, which was based on The Beatles, from 1966 to 1968, and after the show was cancelled they continued to release albums and tour until 1971.

They sold a phenomenal 50 million records worldwide and were praised by the late John Lennon as the 'Marx Brothers of rock' ' a reference to the revered American comedy siblings.
