Still getting the funniest looks from the people they meet, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are resurrecting the band John Lennon once called “The Marx Brothers Of Rock.” As with many past Monkees tours, guitarist Michael Nesmith is not on board for this outing.

The tour launches at Liverpool’s Echo Arena May 12. Other stops include Newcastle City Hall May 15; Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium May 16; London’s Royal Albert Hall May 19; Sheffield City Hall May 20; Birmimgham’s NIA Academy May 21; Cardiff International Arena May 24 and the Royal Centre in Nottingham May 25.

The tour announcement comes one month after Dolenz delivered an Oscar-caliber performance in the SyFy Channel’s epic monster movie, Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid. Although the movie starred ‘80s teen sensations Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, Dolenz’s brief moment on camera when the Monkee-man is swallowed whole by a giant snake is a milestone in the pop-artists-playing-themselves film genre and will be remembered as a giant leap forward in movie making.

(Dolenz’s big moment is at the 4:41 mark)
