LOS ANGELES, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork have announced plans for a Monkees 50th anniversary concert tour to start in May in Fort Myers, Fla.

The pop-rock musicians are performing nearly 50 North American shows to support their latest album Happiness, which features songs by Neil Diamond, Carole King and Monkees alum Mike Nesmith.

Known for its songs "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Last Train to Clarksville," "Daydream Believer" and "I'm a Believer," the band starred in the sitcom The Monkees 1966-68.

The group broke up in 1971, but reunited numerous times over the years for shows and recordings with front-man Davy Jones, who died in 2012 at the age of 66.
