The Monkees have cancelled the remaining dates on their 45th anniversary tour.
Peter Tork, Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones teamed up for the first time in 10 years for a comeback trek, which kicked off in May.

But now the Daydream Believer hitmakers have disappointed fans by calling off the rest of their planned concerts, which were scheduled into September, without offering an explanation.

A statement on Jones’ Facebook.com page reads, “It has been determined that the remainder of The Monkees 2011 tour has been cancelled.

“No reason has been given at this time… We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support of The Monkees.”

Before hitting the road earlier this year, the ’60s icons denied widespread rumours suggesting they were struggling to get along during rehearsals.
