The Monkees! Rare 1967 Live Concert Pics! Davy Jones! Peter Tork!

Just unearthed! Dig these rare candid 1967 pics of the Monkees in concert! These are from early in the band's concert experience, but clearly display the fun and excitement of the Monkees performing in person, as the group delivers electrifying live versions of their hits and LP cuts, and interact with their fans! Click below to enlarge!

Above: Dig all that debris on the stage! Fans would toss home-made
gifts, candy, and paper onto the stage during concerts!

Above: Micky performs during the mid-show "solo spots," and an attendee gets his
pic with the magnificent Monkeemobile, which often traveled with the band, making
its own attention-getting appearances at many tour stops!

Above: Note the rear-screen projection over the band as they perform! The Monkees were
one of the first groups to not merely rush thru a half hour's worth of hits before leaving the stage, but
one that gave fans a multi-media hour-long show, with video, bits, costume changes, and more!

Above: Frantic fans and photogs follow the four, even after the live shows!

BONUS! Click below to see a rare 1993 clip from ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT! Monkee Micky Dolenz discusses his delirious days in the 60s, and so much more!
