The remaining members of the band The Monkees will embark on a US tour this summer, according to the group.

Monkees members Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork will kick off their tour July 15 with a performance in Port Chester, N.Y. Band member Davy Jones died in February 2012. 

The three went on a reunion tour last year after Jones’ death and the response, Dolenz told Rolling Stone, convinced them that they should keep going.

“The reaction to the last tour was euphoric," Dolenz said. "It was pretty apparent there was a demand for another one.”

Tour dates run from the Port Chester performance to Aug. 18, when the trio will perform in Portland, Ore. But Dolenz said the tour may continue after their US journey.
