David Cassidy to step in for Davy Jones
Music » Cassidy to perform tribute to late Monkee in Layton.
First Published Jun 28 2012 08:58 am • Last Updated Jun 28 2012 08:58 am

Pop culture icon and "Partridge Family" heartthrob David Cassidy will appear in a special tribute to his friend Davy Jones of the Monkees, who was scheduled to perform for the Layton series before his untimely death. In a Tribune interview, Cassidy said he and Jones first met when Cassidy’s Hollwood Hills neighbor was Jones’ manager. The two developed a close friendship over the years, bonding over shared experiences as teen idols who had been theater-trained, as well as a common love of horses. "There was much mutual respect," Cassidy said. Jones and Cassidy share an agent, so the agent asked Cassidy to step in for a few shows after Jones died in February with shows already scheduled for Jones. The show will include many songs from Jones’ years with The Monkees, while Cassidy’s fans will also be treated to a "musical journey through the years" of Cassidy’s catalog, Cassidy said.
