The Monkees "Farewell Tour" Coming to Huntington
By Nolan Cleary
After multiple COVID-19 delays, the 1960's pop band The Monkees has officially begun their farewell tour - and on October 28th, at 8:00PM, are scheduled to perform at the Paramount in Huntington.
The Monkees "Farewell Tour" finally began on Friday, September 10 and will continue to run until November. The tour was originally set to start in April of 2020, but had to be pushed back as a result of the COVID-19 lockdowns.
Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith remain the last two living members of the group.
In 2021, it was announced that the tour had been re-branded as ”The Monkees Farewell Tour" with Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz, seemingly confirming the end of the band’s 55 year run.
Songs performed included “Mary Mary”, “Daydream Believer”, “The Girl I knew Somewhere”, “Circle Sky”, “Randy Scouce Git”, “Pleseantville Sunday”, “Last Train to Clarksville”, “Sweet Young Thing” and “Papa Jean Blues”, just to name a few.
Tickets for the tour remain available at the Paramount, and for most upcoming events from the band.
