The tour summaries on this website first appeared on Monkees.net in March 2001. Monkeesconcerts.com debuted online on July 4, 2011 in expanded form with photos, YouTube videos, a blog, and other items. You can visit the Live Almanac's YouTube Channel by clicking here. The site's Twitter account was created in May 2014.

SOURCES Special thanks to Maggie McManus, former editor-in-chief of what was the most respected source of Monkees information for 25 years, Monkee Business Fanzine. Numerous past issues of MBF were referenced to collect quotes, concert song lists, and background details found on this website. The Monkees: A Manufactured Image, co-authored by Maggie, Ed Reilly, and Bill Chadwick, was also used to gather information for this website.
Otherwise, the summaries and information in each section of 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.
PHOTOGRAPHS APPEARING ON THIS WEBSITE 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).
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 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, Monkees historian, author, and archivist, 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.
