From Umphrey’s McGee
“Umphrey’s McGee is pleased to bring you a fresh batch of 2017 tour dates. On top of our previously announced three-night Atlanta extravaganza, slated for January 13th through the 15th at the Tabernacle, we are dropping nine new ones on you. Right. Now.
Spafford joins us on the road as a Special Guest for the meat of the run, and January 26th thru the 29th, saxophone virtuoso Joshua Redman rejoins UM on stage to bring some serious heat to the Northeast winter.
Let’s kick off 2017 the only way we know how, with face-melting Umphrey’s McGee rock (of course).”
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.”
