The Monkees are returning to the road in July and August for a 24-date tour they are calling "A Midsummer's Night With the Monkees."
It will feature surviving members Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork. Member Davy Jones dies in February 2012. The band toured late last year and paid tribute to him, which they won't do as much this time out.
"This time we probably won't lean so heavily on the David situation," Dolenaz said to Rolling Stone. "I think we have to move on. Everybody has to move on. He'll always be remembered and acknowledged, but possibly not as much as on that particular tour. We will, of course, still perform 'Daydream Believer' and all the other hits."
"The David Situation?" That sounds a bit cold, no?

What do you think of a Monkees tour sans Davy Jones? Blasphemy? Sacrilege?
