Performance: The Monkee’s Atlantic City
Description: The Monkees live at the Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ on 5/23/2014
During a joint appearance at Monkees Convention 2014 March 15, Monkees Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Mike Nesmith announced they will be touring again this summer.
Unlike most bands of the time, the Monkees were not formed by its members, but rather by TV producers: they were a fictional band in the TV show of the same name. TV producers, Bert Schneider and Bob Rafelson, formulated an idea for a show about a Beatles-like band, then put ads in newspapers, seeking musicians to star in the series. The band was composed of Mike Nesmith, Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, and Peter Tork. All of the members had some musical experience.
The show debuted on NBC in 1966 and became a huge hit. When the series got the greenlight to go ahead, development of the musical side of the project accelerated with Columbia Screen Gems and RCA Records forming a partnership called Colgems Records to distribute Monkees records. The Monkees audience consisted of young teenagers and children. Singles like 'I'm a Believer' became Top 10 hits, and the 'Prefab Four' became media icons. By 1967 the Monkees were the most popular band in the US, their records outselling the Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
Other top hits included 'I'm a Believer', 'A Little Bit Me A Little Bit You', 'Mary Mary' and 'I'm Not Your Stepping Stone', with the group selling over 65 million records worldwide..
