Phil Lesh, who turned 82 yesterday (3/15) continues to prove age doesn’t matter and that octagenarians can rock on with the announcement of another run of Halloween shows, billed as Phil-O-Ween, at The Capitol Theater in Port Chester, N.Y.
The former Grateful Dead bassist announced yesterday on his birthday that a yet-to-be-revealed incarnation of Phil Lesh and Friends will take up residence for nine nights – marking his 100th performance at the storied venue – October 14-16, 21-23, and 28-31.
Tickets for Phil-O-Ween go on sale Friday, March 25 at 9:00 a.m. PST here.
