The Monkees last tour as a foursome was to the Far East. The concerts were in the same format as their other tours but with newer songs substituted for some of the older ones. One of the Japanese concerts was filmed and broadcast there in a two-part special. This has not yet been released to the general public, but the audio has been bootlegged.  Davy apparently played some bass on this tour (as he is pictured playing one in what appears to be a soundcheck).
