Hey, hey, it's the Monkees reunited

The Monkees are reuniting for a 10-date tour 45 years after they first got together.

Three of the veteran band's original members - Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork - will play a series of gigs in May, including the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The band, who were put together in 1966 to star in a television show, had nine top 40 hits including I'm A Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday.

Critics initially hit out at the manufactured nature of the band, with Californian rivals The Byrds mocking them in their single So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star.

But the band eventually proved themselves, writing more of their own songs and starring in 1960s cult film Head with Jack Nicholson.

Tickets for the tour, which includes dates in Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Birmingham, go on sale on Friday.

The band's fourth original member Mike Nesmith, who went on to record a series of critically acclaimed country albums, is not taking part.
