About The Monkees

If there is one band that captures the bright and breezy sound of 1960s America, it’s The Monkees. But from their arrival on the music scene in the mid-sixties this group of talented musicians were constantly accused of being nothing more than a ‘manufactured’ pop band.

These Monkees, however, played it smart. Rather than fighting against this label, The Monkees embraced it and even satired it in their own lyrics. In the song "Ditty Diego (War Chant) they proudly proclaimed: "Hey hey, we are the Monkees/You know we love to please/A manufactured image/With no philosophies." Put simply, The Monkees may have been a pop band, but they were definitely free of any agenda and their couldn’t-care-less attitude endeared them to generation after generation of music lovers. Now The Monkees are bringing their own unique brand of fun-loving and tongue-in-cheek pop to the UK, and you can pick up The Monkees tickets right here at Gigantic.

Designed as a US response to the Liverpool phenomenon The Beatles, The Monkees first bounced joyfully onto the scene in 1966. Appealing to American youngsters, their frothy blend of pop soon crossed the Atlantic and took hold in the UK. But it’s all too easy to underestimate the real impact of The Monkees, and throughout their long career many other bands have cited them as inspirational. This is a ‘manufactured’ band that wrote its own songs and played its own instruments, and today are regarded as pioneers of the pop video format that nearly all bands and musicians now adopt.

The death of frontman Davy Jones in 2011 during their 45th anniversary tour left a big hole in the band that many believed would be impossible to fill. However, the death of Jones in fact led to the reunion of the three surviving members - Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork ��" and today The Monkees are still bringing their own unique brand of bouncy yet surprisingly complex pop to a new generation of fans.

This year UK Monkee fans are lucky enough to be included in the latest tour, and The Monkees tour dates for 2015 include a one-night special on Friday September 4th at the Eventim Apollo in London. Tickets are bound to be in very high demand both from those who remember watching The Monkees in their childhood and a new generation of fans, so make sure you grab The Monkees concert tickets while they’re still available here at Gigantic.
