Micky Dolenz has announced the details of his upcoming solo tour, “The Monkees Celebrated by Micky Dolenz.” The tour will include 19 shows, including a stop in Virginia Beach, where Dolenz will present The Monkees’ triumphant third album Headquarters with a live performance and videos alongside all of the band’s biggest hits.

The Langley Federal Credit Union Concert Series presents “The Monkees Celebrated by Micky Dolenz” on Tuesday, April 4 at 8 PM at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts.

The presale for this show will take place on Thursday, November 3 from 10 AM to 11:59 PM. This tour will celebrate the release of Micky Dolenz’ new box set, Headquarters, based around the Monkees’ #1 album of the same name. Dolenz is right to celebrate. Headquarters represented a peak moment for The Monkees in terms of both creativity and camaraderie. Released in May 1967, Headquarters was the first album the group recorded after winning a hard-fought battle for control over its music earlier that year. It sold three million copies and topped the charts, making it the band’s third consecutive #1 album in less than a year. "After completing our first tour as a four-piece band in late 1966, Nez perceptively remarked that, 'Pinocchio had become a real little boy.' By the end of March 1967, Pinocchio had actually become quite a cool little dude (if I do say so myself) with the completion of Headquarters, the first studio album that we had been allowed to create entirely amongst ourselves,” says Dolenz.

“Monkee music was great music. Terrific songs crafted by gifted writers and produced by skilled producers. But Headquarters will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember the camaraderie, the collaboration, the enthusiasm and the occasional creative angst. And I particularly remember lying on the floor behind my drumkit between takes eating sunflower seeds.”
