As American Songwriter reports, vocalist, drummer, and sole survivor of The Monkees, Dolenz is celebrating 55 years of the band’s third LP, Headquarters, with a 2023 tour where he’ll play the album in its entirety. A special record to the band of “I’m a Believer” fame, Dolenz described Headquarters as “the first studio album that we had been allowed to create entirely amongst ourselves.”
“I remember the camaraderie, the collaboration, the enthusiasm, and the occasional creative angst,” Dolenz continued. “And I particularly remember lying on the floor behind my drumkit between takes eating sunflower seeds.”
A limited edition Headquarters box set will also accompany the milestone anniversary. Scheduled to drop on Nov. 28, the set will feature 69 previously unreleased tracks, including abandoned backing tracks assembled by producer Don Kirshner, a new remix of the album, early demos and studio outtakes.
