Michael Nesmith: Live in Ferndale, Michigan 4/8/13 - Concert Review

Written by General Jabbo

For years, Michael Nesmith famously avoided the concert stage, both as a solo artist and as a member of the Monkees. His last Monkees shows had been the European leg of the 1997 tour for Justus, while his last solo tour came in 1992. Fans clamoring for a live appearance by “The Wool Hat,” had learned to temper their expectations.

Then, in late 2012, Nesmith decided to hit the concert trail again, beginning with some solo shows in England and later reuniting with the surviving Monkees (Davy Jones died last February) for a reunion tour. The shows with the Monkees were Nesmith’s first in America since 1969. While he was possibly sensing his own mortality in light of Jones’ passing, Nesmith has stated he missed playing live — which brings us to 2013.

Nesmith is in the midst of a 17-city U.S. tour, which made its way to Ferndale, MI, just outside of Detroit on April 8, 2013. Backed by an ace band, which includes Boh Cooper on keyboards, Nesmith alums Paul Leim on drums and Joe Chemay on bass and Chris Scruggs (grandson of Earl) on pedal steel and lead guitar, Nesmith played songs covering all aspects of his solo career up until 2006’s Rays.
