Umphrey’s McGee Winter Tour 2016

Umphrey's McGee - Winter Tour 2016

From Umphrey’s McGee
Umphrey’s McGee announces the start of 2016 with a 25-plus-date national tour kicking off with a three-night run at the historic Beacon Theatre in NYC, two nights in Asheville for our first arena double-header, and a triumphant return to the Left Coast in March. Instrumental rock-fusion quartet, TAUK, joins us for over 15 performances, as well as our friends The Motet in Asheville, and saxophone virtuoso Joshua Redman on select dates.

2016 marks Umphrey’s 18th year on the road! In our continued effort to push the envelope of heightened fan experiences, our immersive high-end audio offering Headphones & Snowcones will be offered during the 2016 tour, alongside umVIP Enhanced Experience programs. Get the full umVIP experience at our triple-headers in New York City and Aspen, as well as our two-night arena stand in Asheville. “Nothing Too Fancy” umVIP ticket upgrades will also be available in Kalamazoo, Richmond, and Sandpoint. Each umVIP program is unique in its offerings, but all of them have the same core principle: we hook it up, so you can GET DOWN.

Pre-sale tickets along with the umVIP packages will go on sale Wednesday, October 21st at 10:00 am ET for Leg 1 dates (January 27th thru February 20th), and Wednesday, October 21st at 10:00 am local time for Leg 2 dates (March 10th thru 26th). Likewise, the public on-sale will occur Friday, October 23rd at 10:00 am EST on the East Coast, and 10:00 am local time on the West Coast.

Stay tuned for more dates to come, more innovative offerings from Team UM (Couch Tour anyone?), and more opportunities to roll umVIP as we kick off 2016 the best way we know how — with rock hands blazing.”

“After our shows on Halloween night and the first weekend of December, we will be taking our first break ever from touring and performing on the stage. In case you missed our announcement a few months back, we will taking an indefinite break starting this winter. We have no time table in mind or determined length of a break, but will definitely be making a return when we are ready. With that in mind, these three shows will be the last times to catch us for a while.

Halloween night we will be making our first appearance at The State Theatre in Kalamazoo, MI. Joining us on the stage for the night will be a horn section led by Funktion’s Terrance Massey. Opening up the show will be the fellow Grand Rapids folk band, The Crane Wives. Also entertaining the crowd for a while will be the most rocking blues band we’ve ever played with, Andy Frasco and the U.N. from Los Angelas, CA. Many of our fans have been discussing and planning on dressing up as a Hippo song or a theme from one of our songs. We fully endorse and encourage our all people attending this show to follow suit since this is totally awesome. If you don’t want to dress up as a UV Hippo theme, just dress up anyways, it is Halloween night!

The first weekend of December we are playing Friday night in Grand Rapids at The Intersection and Indianapolis at The Vogue the following day. Both nights will be An Evening with meaning everyone that attends will be getting three full sets of Hippo each night! Both of these cities and both of these shows mean a lot to us. It is the culmination of 10 years of non stop work and 6 years of non stop touring. We would love to see all of your beautiful faces at both of them dancing in front of us. Make a weekend of it!”
