The Monkees: Empire Pool, Wembley, London

Peter Jones, Record Mirror, 8 July 1967

CERTAINLY THE best-produced pop-music presentation I've ever seen — that's a summary of the Monkees in concert at the massive 10,000-seater Wembley Pool. Constant changes of costume from the boys, with colour stills and movies shown on a huge screen, and a tremendous amount of verve and apparent improvisation from the four boys.

Total word count of piece: 332
