The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.



The Long Center  is proud to present The Monkees Summer 2013 tour “A Midsummer’s Night with the Monkees,” July 31st at 8pm.

Following their sold out 2012 fall tour, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork return to the concert stage this summer for a reprise. Due to the limited run of the 2012 tour, many fans were unable to see the show, so The Monkees are bowing to popular demand, coming to all new venues and markets this summer.

Last year’s tour elicited raves from both fans and critics alike. “…Nothing could have prepared the uninitiated for the powerful concert the Monkees delivered…,” wrote Chrissie Dickinson in the Chicago Tribune, “It wasn’t just a recap of the band’s greatest hits. It was an emotionally disarming multimedia show that, for all its backward glance, felt fresh and electric.”

The trio’s set list features a selection of classic hits like “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”. Also, deep cuts from their first five platinum albums (including some performed for the first time since the 1960’s) and fan favorites from the soundtrack to their cult film classic Head and their Emmy-award winning television series. Plus, a few surprises!

The show includes a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs. Backed by the same stellar crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Nesmith, Dolenz and Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio.
