If you know anything about the history of Rock you know that Mike was an accomplished songwriter (under the name "Mike Blessing") before the Monkees were constructed. Mike always fought against the 'hit-machine" aspect of the Monkees, insisting on contributing his own tunes. Though they were not the hit singles, his tunes were very memorable and highlights of the Monkee's catalog. As their career wound down, Mike's Monkee tunes, often featuring the studio pros who would go on to form Mike's first few solo bands, and featuring no other Monkee performing on them, spotlighted his interest in country and folk music. Mike
was there at the start of so-called "Country Rock" and deserves as much credit as the Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers in popularizing country music to the rock audience.
I've posted the setlist from cool website "Setlist.FM." Mike didn't vary the setlist any, at least from what I saw on the setlist site. The actual set list posted is from another night.
Mike Nesmith 2013 Tour setlist
Mike's band was great. Of particular note was the presence of Earl Scruggs grandson, Chris, who accompanied Mike on every kinda stringed instrument available. During the encore, "Thanx For The Ride" the pedal steel solo from the late, great Red Rhodes who was a member of Nesmith's First National Band was played at the appropriate point in the song. A great and fitting way to end the show.
