Micky Dolenz, the last Monkees member to survive, will embark on a tribute tour: "Like my brothers"

Micky Dolenz is the last survivor of the Monkees.

The 76-year old announced that he will be embarking on a special tour to celebrate the lives and music of his bandmates Davy Jones (Mike Nesmith), and Peter Tork (Peter Tork). These shows will feature songs that are beloved, personal stories and never-before-seen footage taken from the star's archives.

Dolenz stated that he felt it was important for fans to come together and celebrate the lives and contributions of Davy, Mike, and Peter. People have been reaching out to me asking that I pay tribute to them so that the incredible impact of The Monkees is properly recognized.

He said, "We spent so much time together; they were my brothers. I want to share some the great joy that we shared together."

The artist became the last surviving member of the popular '60s TV stars-turned-musicians in December following the death of Nesmith at age 78. They had just finished a farewell tour.

Dolenz said that she was heartbroken and spoke out to Fox News Digital about Nesmith's death. "I have lost a close friend and partner. It was so wonderful that we were able to spend the last few months doing what we love most - singing, laughing and doing shtick. It will be sorely missed. I will miss the shtick. Nez, rest in peace. Mick, I love you so much.

Jones, at the age of 66, died in 2012. Tork died in 2019 at the age of 77.

Bob Rafelson, Bert Schneider and Bert Schneider created "The Monkees", which featured the hilarious misadventures of a group that tore around Los Angeles in a Pontiac GTO called The MonkeeMobile. It won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series in 1967.

Every episode featured two to three new Monkees songs. Six of them were Top 10 Billboard hits over the course of their two-year run. Three other songs, "I'm A Believer", "Daydream Believer" or "Last Train To Clarksville," were No. 1. They had four No. They had four No. 1 albums in 1967.

Jones was the cute lead singer of the group, with his British accent, boyish looks and British accent. Dolenz was the eccentric drummer. However, he had to learn how to play the drums while the show progressed. Tork, a folk-rock singer, played the role of the comically inept bass player. With his Texas accent and wool hat, Nesmith became the serious, but naive, lead guitarist.

The band went on a long concert tour in 1968 where they performed many of their songs live and also played their instruments for adoring fans. Jimi Hendrix was often their opening act.

In 1970, the band split up. Nesmith encouraged the Monkees to reunite for their 30th anniversary. The album was called "Justus." All four of them composed the songs and played the guitars.
