The Monkees continued to prove their musicianship with this second tour. The Monkees' summer tour began at Wembley and then worked its way through the US. The group kept a similar stage show to their first tour with the substitution of newer songs and played the same instrumental roles as on the previous tour with Epifocal Phringe and The Sundowners taking the place of The Candy Store Prophets in backing up Mike's, Davy's, and Micky's solo sets.

Although a live album from this tour was not released until 1987's Live 1967, the final three concerts were recorded. The album contained the best takes of songs from the three concerts combined into one set. The Seattle version of "Steppin' Stone" was released on Rhino's box set. Also, the Mobile concert has been bootlegged. It had been recorded for testing purposes.

Throughout this tour, The Monkees worked on their fourth album.
