The Monkees' reunion tour has apparently run into trouble before it has even started with reports suggesting rehearsals have been blighted by internal bickering between the three participating band members.
As previously reported by Spinner, the band, minus original member Michael Nesmith, are set to tour the UK next month as part of their 45th anniversary celebrations. However, with their first date at Liverpool's Echo Arena just over three weeks away it would appear tensions between Davy Jones, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz are running high.
An inside source was quoted in The Sun saying, "It's nearly impossible to get them to agree on anything. All discussions are via a third party -- 'Mr Dolenz wants this, Mr Tork is insisting on that.' They're setting up so many obstacles for themselves that their tour looks doomed before it's even begun."
Glossing over the claims of disharmony, a Monkees spokesperson said, "The band members' requests for the tour are far from unusual. They are all very much looking forward to seeing all their fans again."
