As has become tradition on Super Bowl Sunday, HT faves Umphrey’s McGee have announced their annual football-themed, interactive UMBowl concert. UMBowl IV will take place in Chicago on April 26th.

Over the next few weeks UM will reveal more information about the concert including the venue, ticketing details and what the theme will be for each of the event’s four quarters. This evening, they shared a look at how they came to a decision on whether to hold UMBowl this year…

For UMBowl I, which was held at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall on April 24th, 2010, the first quarter was an acoustic set, the second quarter was one of the band’s Stew Art sets, the third quarter was an all-request set and the fourth quarter was a “Choose Your Own Adventure Quarter” in which attendees helped guide what the band would do. UMBowl II was held at Park West in Chicago on April 2nd, 2011. “Choose Your Own Adventure” returned as the first quarter, Stew Art came back for the second quarter, the third set was a “Special Teams Quarter” that saw different lineups on each song performed and the fourth set was of the all-request variety. UM returned to Park West for UMBowl III on April 28th, 2012. The first set was an all-request quarter, the second set was a Stew Art event, the third set was a “Choose Your Own Adventure Quarter” while the UMBowl III finale was the “Raw Stewage Quarter” in which the band weaved together the top vote-getters from a list of past “Jimmy Stewart” passages distributed to attendees before the show.
