The tour summaries featured on this website first appeared on Monkees.net in March 2001. The Monkees Live Almanac debuted online on July 4, 2011 with expanded tour summaries, photos, YouTube videos, and a daily blog. The Live Almanac's YouTube Channel was created in December 2011, and a Twitter account appeared in May 2014.
Monkees historian, archivist, and producer Andrew Sandoval's book, The Monkees: The Day-By-Day Story of the '60s TV Pop Sensation, is an invaluable resource for Monkees fans and is referenced constantly.
Special thanks to Maggie McManus, former editor-in-chief of Monkee Business Fanzine, the most respected source for Monkees news from 1977-2002. Numerous past issues of MBF were checked to collect quotes, concert song lists, and background details. The Monkees: A Manufactured Image, co-authored by Ed Reilly, Bill Chadwick, and Maggie, was also used to gather information. Otherwise, the tour summaries and information found on this website comes from my attendance at and knowledge of Monkees concerts, from the numerous amounts of reviews, articles, and interviews I have amassed, and from being a Monkees fan for 28 years.
All photos on this website I am assuming to be public domain. They are photos from my collection, contributions from visitors to the site, or ones that I have found around the web on various web pages. A lot of photos found online did not have a credit attributed to them. However, I am aware of names of photographers who have worked with The Monkees in the past. In those instances, I have attempted to give credit to the individual photographer.
If you are one of the photographers whose photo(s) I am using and wish it removed, please use the Contact Form above so I will know your photo is not public domain.
Otherwise, I make no money from the photos on this website and take no credit for any of them (except those coming from my personal collection, which is noted).
The entire Monkees catalog is available from Rhino Records and is downloadable on iTunes.
Special thanks to Kevin Schmid and Al Bigley for their assistance and contributions. Al is also responsible for the various Monkees-themed website banners seen throughout pages of the Live Almanac site. And thanks to Andrew Sandoval, for continually taking the time to answer questions for me along the way.
Last but certainly not least, thank you to Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork for countless years of entertainment and enjoyment.
