LONDON, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Three of the four original members of the 1960s pop band The Monkees are to tour the United Kingdom together, it was announced Monday.

Starring Peter Tork, Davey Jones and Micky Dolenz, the shows are being planned in honor of the group's 45th anniversary.

The fourth original member, Mike Nesmith, who went on to record a series of country albums, is not touring with the group, Britain's Mirror newspaper reported.

The Guardian said the 10-date Monkees tour is to begin May 12 at the Liverpool Echo Arena.

The band is known for its hits "Daydream Believer," "I'm a Believer" and "Last Train to Clarksville," as well as its eponymous sitcom, which ran from 1966 to 1968.
