Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have a history of playing special-themed sets for their Halloween and New Year's Eve shows, and this year is no exception. For members of The Flock attending the New Year's Eve party Pigeons Playing Ping Pong are planning at the Madison Theater in Covington, KY on Sunday, December 31st, there's a real treat in store. Today, the band has detailed the night's theme – DISNYE: A Whole New Year. That's right, the night is going to be Disney-themed!
"The DISNYE idea has been brewing within the band for a few years and we're so excited to finally play the music that we all grew up on," remarks frontman, Greg Ormont. "We always love playing at Madison Theater and we're just bursting with ideas for this one. Let's just say, be prepared."
Attendees of the Madison Theater show can expect a rare set of original and cover songs, teases and mashups, a musical countdown to 2018 and maybe even some never-before-heard material. Check out Pigeons Playing Ping Pong's "Horizon > Help On The Way > Eyes Of The World > Fool In The Rain > D'yer Mak'er > Fool In The Rain > Horizon" cut from their special "Dead Zeppelin" 2015 Halloween set at 9:30 Club in D.C. here for a sense of what's in store.
It is not too late to snag tickets to the Pigeons Playing Ping Pong NYE spectacular; those can still be purchased here. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of show, of course, if the show does not sell out before the 31st. The band will kick off the weekend with a 2-night run at Cleveland's Beachland Ballroom on December 29th and 30th; tickets are available here for night 1 and here for night 2.
