After the huge success of last year's Monkees tour, the usually reclusive Mike Nesmith has been recharged and is embarking on his own solo tour this spring. Nesmith took to Facebook to deliver this information today (Jan. 28). The dates are listed below.

"This is the tour to break in the show," he wrote. "See if you like it, earn the promoters confidence, and see if anybody comes. If it goes well we will keep going later in the summer/fall and hit the states we missed on this half-lap of the U.S. If it goes poorly we will stare blankly into the future and post pictures of cute animals and food."

Two weeks ago, Nesmith teased his fans - also on Facebook - with the news of an upcoming solo tour in an amusing and offbeat post. "I thought the man and woman at the door might be from a religious group," he wrote. "I was wrong. It was an easy mistake to make, it turns out they were from TIAPWWGAI (The International Association of People Who Wont Go Away) and I had been per-approved for membership. I found out later that acceptance in the club is automatic at a certain age. I wondered how they got my name and they said they heard I was going on tour in the U.S. this Spring."

The band for this tour will consist of Nesmith on guitar, bassist Joe Chemay, Paul Leim on drums and Boh Cooper on keyboards. Rock on, Papa Nez!
