Monkees’ Mickey Dolenz to Appear in Epcot’s Flower Power Concert Series

Mickey Dolenz, will perform as part of the Epcot Flower Power concert series later this spring, in place of Monkees bandmate Davy Jones.

Jones, who died last month unexpectedly of a heart attack, was scheduled to appear during the concert’s last weekend, May 18-20.  He was a veteran performer for the popular concert series, which takes place during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, and features acts primarily from the 60s and 70s.

Dolenz and Jones were both part of the iconic 60s group, The Monkees.  The band, which was created for the TV series, went on to generate a number of popular songs.  The two apparently remained close as Dolenz told CNN:  “He was the brother I never had, and this leaves a gigantic hole in my heart.”

Davy Jones had been a regular performer during the Flower Power concert series.  2012 will mark the first appearance in the lineup for Dolenz.
