Fact: Surviving members of The Monkees Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork have signed up to play a rare live gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo in September (15). The gig will be an acoustic set of some of the band's greatest hits. Guitarist Michael Nesmith is reportedly not involved in the reunion, which marks the band's first U.K. gig since frontman Davy Jones passed away in 2012.
Quote: "When Davy passed, it was traumatic. I'm not sure I'm still over it (sic). It's like a family member, a very close family member, like a brother, but the music is so powerful, the music it does sorta (sic) see you through." The Monkees star Micky Dolenz is still struggling to come to terms with the loss of his bandmate and longtime friend Davy Jones, following his death from a heart attack in 2012.
