Tour Dates: The Big Wu Turns 20

Thanks in part to the H.O.R.D.E. Tour the mid to late ’90s could easily be looked at as the golden age of jambands, with regional bands turning into national touring acts thanks to an open-minded and enthusiastic fan base that where eager to discover the next big thing. Among the crop of bands that sprang up during this boom was The Big Wu, who formed at St. Olaf College in 1992 and earned a fervent following around the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The Minnesota-based act, who hold the distinction of being the first band on at the inaugural Bonnaroo in 2002, will celebrate their 20th anniversary next month with a nine-date mostly Minnesota-based run. The tour will fittingly kick off on February 10, at their old haunt The Cabooze, in Minneapolis, where they served as the venue’s house band in the mid-90s, that will serve as their official 20th anniversary performance, and will likely see The Big Wu’s original guitar player Jason Fladger reunite with his old band mates for a mini-set.

If you’re not into a night with the Minnesota-based jamband, then maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
