Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz, the surviving members of The Monkees, will go on a farewell tour in fall 2021.

Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz will bid adieu to The Monkees with a farewell tour this fall that will end where the band’s career began – in Los Angeles.

The tour kicks off Sept. 11 in Seattle and will hit Atlanta Symphony Hall Oct. 8 as part of its three-month run.

A pre-sale for tickets begins at 10 a.m. May 6, with the general public onsale at 10 a.m. May 7, both via ticketmaster.com.

The “Monkees Farewell Tour” will commemorate 55 years of “Monkeemania” with a career-spanning setlist expected to include “I’m a Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” The shows will also spotlight other songs from their ’60s-era TV series, such as “The Girl I Knew Somewhere” and “For Pete’s Sake,” as well as songs from their most recent studio album, 2016′s “Good Times!”

In 1996, the original foursome – Nesmith, Dolenz, Peter Tork and Davy Jones – reunited for the album, “Justus” and TV special, “Hey, Hey, It’s the Monkees.” Jones died of a heart attack in 2012, while Tork passed away in 2019 after a decade-long battle with cancer.
