Recently, Micky Dolenz of the Monkees announced via social media that due to extreme exhaustion from a hectic touring schedule, his doctors have advised him to cancel an upcoming appearance at the ‘Days of the Dead’ Convention in Indianapolis.

He also stated in another post about a couple canceled shows in Utah. “Thank you ALL for the care, love and support you’ve shown me! I now intend to rest up and remind myself, again, that I’m 78, not 28!”

We wish you a speedy recovery, Micky!
