CATOOSA, Okla. – Former Monkees member Micky Dolenz will give fans a glimpse into his lengthy music career on Nov. 5 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

Tickets start at $25 and go on sale Sept. 14.

Dolenz starred as the drummer in the Emmy Award-winning 1960s show “The Monkees,” a show he describes as “a half-hour Marx Brothers musical on TV.” Dolenz’s career skyrocketed as The Monkees sold more than 65 million records.

From there, Dolenz went on to continue his acting career in the United Kingdom with a role in Harry Nilsson’s “The Point.” He also added writing, directing and producing to his résumé, including writing and directing credits for “Bugsy Malone.”

A musical theater career was next for the actor. He starred in the Nat Tour/West End production of “Hairspray,” the Nat Tour/Broadway production of Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida,” as well as the Broadway production of “Grease.” He also participated in a Monkees revival and recorded an album called “Justus.”

Dolenz has expanded his storytelling skills and is a popular radio DJ, a children’s book author and a successful solo artist with three albums: “King for a Day,” “Remember” and “A Little Bit Broadway; A Little Bit Rock & Roll.”

In 2016, he celebrated 50 years with The Monkees, who launched a world tour and an album titled “Good Times.”
