Here is a rare chance to own a DVD of a Monkees concert from the group's 45th anniversary tour in 2011, which featured Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork.
With the unfortunate passing of Davy Jones--in many ways the face of the group--the 2011 tour may unfortunately be the final Monkees tour ever, especially given Michael
Nesmith's hesitancy to commit to major road tours.
Two DVDs have surfaced from the tour--Both of which I have available on iOffer.
The first is from the Mohegan Sun concert from June 10, 2011.
The second is from the Beacon Theater in New York City from June 16, 2011.
Each has its advantages and disadvantages. In short, the video quality is better from the Mohegan Sun, but the group performed a bigger setlist at the Beacon.
This DVD comes from the Mohegan Sun concert from June 10, 2011.
The video quality is pretty solid, with the camera
alternating between the stage performances and the video screen the group had playing throughout the concert. (The Beacon DVD does not capture the video screen at all.)
The setlist is as follows:
1. I'm a Believer
2. Mary, Mary
3. When Love Comes Knockin'
4. Randy Scouse Git
5. Your Auntie Grizelda
6. Papa Gene's Blues
8. It's Nice to Be With You
9. That Was Then, This is Now
10. All of Your Toys
11. What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?
12. Someday Man
13. Sometime in the Morning
14. Long Title: Do I Have To Do This All Over Again?
15. The Porpoise Song (Theme from Head)
16. Daddy's Song
17. A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You
18. Cuddly Toy
19. Goin' Down
20. Last Train to Clarksville (End Cuts Out)
21. I Wanna Be Free (Picks Up Toward the End)
22. Saturday's Child
23. She Hangs Out
24. (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone
25. Daydream Believer
26. Listen to the Band
27. Pleasant Valley Sunday
28. I'm a Believer (Reprise)
The DVD is very watchable and enjoyable--a great pick-up for any Monkees fan; just do not expect commercial quality.
I have other Monkees rarities on iOffer and upon inquiry, including the 45th anniversary show from the Beacon. Note my feedback and purchase with confidence.
