The Monkees

No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall


Monkees Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz will tour Australia and New Zealand, playing Monkees’ music spanning more than 50 years.

Great hits! Classics from the TV show! Over two hours of Monkees’ magic!

Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz will hit Australia and New Zealand this coming June. As well as all of those marvellous Micky hit singles, this will be the first time Mike has appeared in Australia or New Zealand since the release of his 1977 Live At The Palais album,  so be assured the shows will highlight many of his compositions, including some that have never been performed live.

‘Last Train to Clarksville’, ‘Listen To The Band’, ‘Mary Mary’, ‘Different Drum’, ‘(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone’, ‘The Girl I Knew Somewhere’, ‘I’m A Believer’, ‘Good Clean Fun’, ‘D.W. Washburn’, ‘Circle Sky’, ‘Randy Scouse Git’, ‘Papa Gene’s Blues’, ‘Take a Giant Step’, ‘What Am I Doing Hangin’ Round’… and that’s not even half of what you’ll get to sing along to on the night.

VIP packages are available and include access to the show’s sound check,  featuring deep cuts not performed during the concert’ a signed A3 poster; priority entry to the show;  and a commemorative VIP laminate. A very limited number of Platinum VIP tickets are available, giving fans the opportunity to meet Mike and Mickey and get a photo on their own phone.

"I love being on stage with Micky,” says Nesmith. “We’ve been collaborating for over 50 years, so it’s hard to believe it’s never been just the two of us. I’m excited to dust off some tunes that I haven’t played for a long time too. These are going to be some fun shows.”

"Right from the get-go, I admired Mike's songs. When we used to get together around the campfire to sing in the early days, we were always doing his songs,” says Dolenz. “We always had such a great a vocal blend; he was the one who encouraged me to write songs of my own. I've always been a big fan and now we finally get to do the Mike and Micky show that we riffed on back when we were shooting The Monkees."

The Monkees Present: The Mike and Micky Show is a unique concert experience. Times may change but infectious pop hits and wonderfully charismatic characters stay in our hearts and memories forever.
