The Monkees are preparing to play a special show at Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith - as a duo.
Assembled in 1965, The Monkees originally consisted of Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, Michael Nesmith, and the late Davy Jones.
The band have a whopping 11 studio albums under their belts, and they're sure to play some of the hits when they perform at the Apollo on Friday September 4.
Always a joker, when asked what the audience could expect from the show, keyboardist and bassist Peter Tork told getwestlondon : "Well, we have a contract with the Royal Air Force, they're gunna drop smoke bombs on stage... There'll be some elephants, and kangaroos.
"We'll throw in some old hits, some Beethoven's 9th, Chopin, Bach. Maybe some Miley Cyrus at the end."
In reality, two original Monkees members, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, will be performing a full evening of music and multimedia, including rare films and images from their series; there will be a full selection of The Monkees hits, plus an intimate acoustic set.
Tork said: "There will be lots of visuals and videos. Some fans have been there from the start, they'll be stunned at the number of things that they've forgotten.
"For the people who have come along since, it'll be like a time capsule."
The September concert at Eventim Apollo will be the first concert The Monkees have played since the tragic passing of singer Davy Jones in February 2012. The last show they played was in 2011, a sold-out show at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Monkees have played as a trio in various formats, but this will be their first show as a duo.
Tork said: "We're all comfortable in threesomes. Playing as a twosome is a little perculiar... But the show is the same Monkees still. Mickey has the iconic voice. He's an astounding performer... I pick up the slack!
"You can remember the guys through video."
The band will be playing their biggest hits including; Last Train to Clarksville, Daydream Believer, I'm A Believer and I Wanna Be Free.
Tork said: "You know, pop songs these days are much more highly arranged, but beneath they're not that different from Monkees songs... Maybe we'll hear some remixes soon."
Of the UK show, Tork said: "I enjoy being in England...I'm an Anglophile... Perhaps Scotland won't be a part of the UK when I get there. Maybe Scotland are waiting for The Monkees to do the show before leaving."
