The Monkees to Reunite in a 2011 Tour


The Monkees to Reunite in a 2011 Tour


Frontman Davy Jones would like to make sure his bandmates would shape out before next year's tour because he doesn't 'want to get on stage with a bunch of old guys'.

Singer Davy Jones has announced plans to reform The Monkees, just a year after ruling out a reunion with his bandmates. The "I'm a Believer" hitmakers, who found fame in the 1960s, last performed together in 1997 but, in an interview last year, Jones claimed a Monkees show would never happen again.

He said, "It's not a case of dollars and cents. It's a case of satisfying yourself. I don't have anything to prove. The Monkees proved it for me." However, the singer appears to have had a change of heart - the group is eyeing a string of concerts in 2011.

Jones says, "We're talking about doing a tour next year with The Monkees. There's talk about a show with dialogue." But the 64 year old is urging his bandmates to shape up before they hit the stage again: "My thing is I just don't want to get on stage with a bunch of old guys."

    You tube on line has put out a session on (You Just May Be The One) T.V. version better sounds with other drums and bass and remasterd over again from 1966 along with (The Kind Of Girl I Could Love)in its first back up singers that were later removed for the T.V. series.The sounds and singing on both Nesmith tunes are great! I never heard a better version! I made some VCDs on them. Very rare sessions.

    Was the song and dance "WHAT WE GONNA DO" and "CUDLEY TOY" done in the same Theatre? Why was Valleri and You Just May Be The One recorded over again? The T.V. versions were better!
