MICKY DOLENZ TO PLAY B.B. KING'S IN OCTOBER
MICKY DOLENZ and his band will make a rare New York City appearance, at B.B. King’s on Friday, October 19; and, the show will be recorded for a new live album to be released later this year.
Dolenz, who as part of the legendary Monkees – who will re-group with the surviving members, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork for a series of shows this November – has sold in excess of 65 million records, will have his next solo album, Remember, released on September 25.
If all that weren’t enough, Dolenz will appear in a series of performances of Hairspray marking the 25th anniversary of the original film, in Indianapolis and Baltimore; where he will essay the role of Wilbur Turnblad. He had appeared in London’s West End in 2010 reprising the same role as well as a U.K.-national tour the following year.
Hairspray: In Concert! Will additionally star filmmaker, writer, and artist John Waters as the narrator. Waters of course created and directed Hairspray, the popular cult comedy hit in 1988.
Says Dolenz, "I love B.B. Kings! It's an incredible place to play and I can't wait to record my live album at this legendary venue." For more info, visit www.MickyDolenz.com.
