American rock and pop band, The Monkees, have canceled the remainder of their tour due to a medical situation of their guitarist Michael Nesmith.


The reunited band that was initially active from 1966 to 1971 announced on their official Facebook page that 75-year-old Michael Nesmith, aka Mike, had a minor health issue on Thursday before his tour date in Philadelphia.

The Monkees' explained that Nesmith had visited a local medical facility and was advised to rest for the next week. They clarified that although his condition was not serious, Nesmith wisely chose to follow the doctor's orders.

Due to the change in plans, the band had to postpone the remaining four dates of their tour titled The Monkees Present: The Mike & Micky Show until a later date.


The band shared that Nesmith was dismissed from the medical facility on the same day of admission and was heading to his hometown, Carmel Valley.

Nesmith was in good spirits, and the band thanked his supporters on his behalf for supporting him throughout and understanding his situation. He was looking forward to getting back on the stage soon.

The four venues where the show got canceled included a Thursday-night performance in Philadelphia's Keswick Theater, followed by performances in New York City on Friday, Huntington, New York, on Saturday and Red Bank, Jersey, on Monday.
