Hey hey, they're retiring.

The Monkees have revealed their upcoming tour of Australia will be their last.

The band, formed for a 1960s TV show, went on to have massive hits with songs such as Daydream Believer and Last Train to Clarksville and will be marking their 50-year anniversary when they kick off the tour on Friday in Brisbane.

However, the original quartet has been reduced to two with Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork the last original members standing, following Davy Jones' death in 2012 and Michael Nesmith's withdrawal from the spotlight.

On Thursday, Dolenz and Tork announced this would be their final Australian dates. The pair have been touring this show for the past 18 months around the world and will finish up in the Gold Coast on December 16.
