Over half a century after America’s answer to the British Invasion made a televised incursion into the U.S. rock scene, Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz the two surviving members of the Monkees, have a new live album and a tour in the works.

The album, “The Mike & Micky Show Live,” comes out on April 3 and the band will embark on a tour to coincide with the release. The show, billed as “An Evening With The Monkees,” will feature songs that span the band’s entire 50+ year career. It arrives at ACL Live in Austin on April 20.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 15. More info.
