Umphrey’s Announces NYE Run

Umphrey’s McGee will return to the Riviera Theater in their hometown of Chicago for a three-show New Year’s Eve run that’s being billed as “3 nights. 7 sets. 1 band.” The sextet last played a New Year’s show at the 2,300 seat venue on December 31, 2004 having moved up to the Aragon Ballroom a year later. UM performed at the Aragon each of the past five years with the exception of 2008 when they played at The Auditorium Theater.

Umphrey’s keyboardist Joel Cummins explains the choice of venues…

“We’ve played nearly every room in Chicago over the course of our career, to continue keeping things interesting, we’ve chosen one of our favorite venues in the city this year, the Riviera Theater, with a perfect combination of lots of open floor for dancing and seats in the balcony with great sight lines. We can’t wait to feel the energy in this legendary Chicago haunt explode!”

Tickets for the 29th, 30th and New Year’s Eve go on sale Saturday, September 11th at 10 AM CT. A pre-sale of three-show ticket packages begins tomorrow at Noon CT. The band has also added a slew of shows to its fall tour plans including a two-show run at the Canopy Club in Urbana, IL on Oct. 28 and 29 as well as a two-night stand at the Higher Ground in Burlington, VT on Nov. 3 and 4.
