In April, Micky Dolenz of the Monkees will honor the memory and legacies of his late band mates Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith & Peter Tork with a special tour titled ‘Micky Dolenz Celebrates the Monkees.’

The news was announced on Monday, and follows the December passing of Michael Nesmith.

In a statement, Dolenz explained his motivation for the tour and honoring his late band mates and friends:

“I felt it was important to gather the fans and properly celebrate the lives of Davy, Mike and Peter,” says Dolenz. “People have been contacting me, requesting that I honor them in a way where the extraordinary impact of The Monkees can be properly acknowledged. We spent such a great deal of time together; they were like my brothers, and I want to share some of the great joy we had together.”

And more on the tour, per a news release:

Commemorating more than 50 years of music, Dolenz will be backed by a seven-piece band, performing all of The Monkees’ worldwide hits (“I’m A Believer,” “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train To Clarksville,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” and “That Was Then, This Is Now”) as well as paying tribute to the songs of Mike Nesmith (“Different Drum,” “Mary, Mary,” “Papa Gene’s Blues,” and “Listen To The Band”) and Peter Tork (“For Pete’s Sake” and “Can You Dig It”).
