It has been a colorful year of highs and lows for eclectic rockers Ween. The band entered 2011 on a low note with co-frontman Gene Ween’s January meltdown onstage in Vancouver. Luckily Ween bounced back with a string of fiery festival sets, an acoustic tour featuring Gene and bassist Dave Dreiwitz, the release of the Caesar Demos and a sold-out Halloween show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan.
To end the year right Ween is invading Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium for a three-night New Year’s Eve extravaganza starting tomorrow. According to the band’s website the boys are going to attempt to set a record for most songs played during a three-night stand. Adding to the excitement, this is the band’s first New Year’s run since 1998; there is no guessing what they will do. Hidden Track will be on the scene to count songs and recap all the glory. Tickets for all three nights are still available, including three-day packages.
