The Monkees Take the Last Train to The Palace (Mon., 10/30/21)

“Hey, hey, we’re the monkees / And people say we monkey around / But we’re too busy singing / To put anybody down.” Those were several of the lyrics from “The Monkees” television show theme song. The program was a situation comedy about a pop-rock band that was trying to hit it big and having fun adventures along the way. Well, the innovative TV program did achieve success during its short two-year run, receiving two Emmy Awards in 1967, one for Outstanding Comedy Series. The fictional band became a real one and had real life success. The Monkees weren’t monkeying around when they delivered top hits (assisted by by the songwriting duo of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart) like: “Last Train to Clarksville,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “I’m a Believer,” and “Day Dream Believer,” Unfortunately, the group is down to only two original members with the passing of Peter Tork, and Davy Jones, but hey, Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz can still monkey around! See The Monkees on their Farewell Tour at the Palace Theatre. 7:30 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg.
