TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Monkees at the Warner Theatre, 7/21

I have extremely fond memories of being a toddler sitting in complete silence in my grandmother’s lap as she played the 1966 self-titled debut album by The Monkees. When I was 20, I ended up finding that exact same album in a hole-in-the-wall thrift store and took it over to her house for Christmas. She was just as giddy as she was when I was a kid.

It’s been 47 years since The Monkees graced us with their presence on television screens and record players, and they’ve been collecting different generations of daydream believers ever since.

Although The Monkees haven’t come out with a new album since JustUs in 1996, they’ve been making the rounds with reunion tours for the past few years with positive reinforcement. “I’d love to make a new [record]. We haven’t had any discussions about that beyond, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to have a new one?’ We’re just taking this whole thing one step at a time,” says drummer and vocalist Micky Dolenz. We’d love that too, Micky!

In February 2012, Monkees member and Yahoo! Music‘s “Number One Heartthrob of All Time” Davy Jones sadly passed away, and the group paid tribute to him many times throughout the duration of their tour later the same year.

“This time we probably won’t lean so heavily on the David situation,” says Dolenz. “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.”

Even with the sad passing of heartthrob Davy Jones, The Monkees still captivate their audiences just as they did in ’60s. To prove it to you, the band is coming to the Warner Theatre this Sunday as part of their short American summer tour to show you they’re still rockin’. We have a pair of tickets to give away for you to see The Monkees at Warner Theatre on Sunday, July 21.

If you want to win the tickets, then tell us in the comments below, your favorite song by The Monkees. Mine has to be “I’m A Believer.” You just can’t go wrong with that song when you’re driving around in the summer with the top down, you know?

The winner will be chosen at noon on Thursday, July 18. Tickets are still available.
