Michael Nesmith has returned, and it’s not a prank. For decades, Nesmith—the “brainy one,” heir to the Liquid Paper fortune, and pioneer of the music-video format—never toured with the Monkees. But after the untimely passing of Davy Jones, he rejoined Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork for a triumphant 2012 tour, which now has flourished into the 2013 A Midsummer’s Night with the Monkees.
Just like the tour’s Shakespearean namesake, there’s magic, mischief, and at least one person who turns into a donkey when the Monkees are together. Dolenz practically floats as he drums. Tork grins as he pulls off rope-a-dope basslines. And Nesmith charms with his 12-string acoustic shimmer and Texas drawl. The lengthy set is a treasure chest of greatest hits, including “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer,” a raw take on “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” and an audience sing-along to “Daydream Believer.” Eye-loads of rare and unseen film footage project behind the band as they cheerily harmonize through their trove of chart-toppers. But Nesmith claims the show also will be loaded with deeper cuts from the band’s pivotal album, Headquarters, as well as soundtrack selections from the Monkees’ psychedelic cult film, Head.<p>
