Photos of Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith during Tampa Bay’s last Monkees concert ever


Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith—the last of The Monkees—showcased their final performance together in Tampa Bay on Wednesday night at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall. The nearly two-and-a-half-hour show with intermission was an affair filled with deep cuts (“St. Matthew,” “Auntie’s Municipal Court”), a weepy Nesmith story about being young and lonely (“While I Cry”), and all the snark and goofiness you could want in a Monkees circa 2021 show. If this indeed was the last hurrah from Mike and Micky, they’re not going out with a whimper.—Josh Bradley
