He says he is not aware of all the facts of the illness that has caused his bandmate, Mike Nesmith, to shut off their tour when it was almost at the end. Dolenz says in an interview for Billboard, “Truthfully, I do not know. I spoke to him when he left and he sounded a little bit under the weather, and weak. He was apologizing profusely that he had to cancel the tour to which I said, “Do not worry too much about it. We’ll adjust.”
Now the Monkees are set to do the four shows which remain, rescheduling it to January. The statement was issued on June 21 in the presence of the band for the rescheduling.

But we are trying to take it easy as we are not any younger.” Mickey also talks about the possibility of a live album from the tour.
With the tour aside, Dolenz is indulged with other things in his life. Like being a granddad to his new grandson. The Monkees member took it to Facebook to share his one of the beautiful moment.
