The String Cheese Incident announces Halloween at Hampton Coliseum
The String Cheese Incident announce the final stop on their 2010 calendar: an epic “Hulaween” weekend of Incidents on Friday, October 29, with the Disco Biscuits, and Saturday, October 30 at the famed Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia.
Tickets for the Hampton shows go on sale April 20 at www.stringcheeseincident.com. .25 cents from every ticket sold to these shows will go to support three not-for-profit organizations close to the SCI community: HeadCount, Rex Foundation, and Conscious Alliance.
In the tradition of a decade of legendary SCI Halloween Incidents, and at a venue that holds its own as an east coast favorite, The String Cheese Incident’s 2010 Hulaween weekend at Hampton Coliseum promises to be an over-the-top event that only SCI could invent.
Years past have offered a “Joan Shrivers’” Red Carpet welcome at Hollywood’s Shrine Auditorium, an ode to Michael Jackson’s Thriller in Las Vegas, and many more memorable events.
The String Cheese Incident’s recent live release, Trick or Treat (SCI Fidelity Records / October 2009), best tells the potent musical history of SCI’s “Hulaween” Incidents. Known to perform special concerts comprised heavily of cover tunes each Halloween, Trick or Treat offers selections from SCI performances recorded at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse (1998), Philadelphia’s Electric Factory (1999), Portland’s State Theatre (2000), New York City (2001), Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium (2002), Sin City’s Cox Pavilion (2003), and Madison Alliant Energy Center (2005). The two-disc release is available now on CD, vinyl, and digitally at www.stringcheeseincident.com.

February’s announcement that The String Cheese Incident would perform select summer dates ended a three-year break from touring. Anticipation for these summer plays is high, as demonstrated when tickets to The String Cheese Incident’s Red Rocks and Horning’s Hideout shows sold out just minutes after they went on sale.
For this next era in the band’s career, SCI stays true to its roots by nurturing their community and creating live musical experiences rather than just concerts. In 2010, look for SCI to continue to think out-of-the-box about their musical journey - hosting special events instead of the typical tour-routing, exploring new ways of releasing recordings, and building on their reputation as innovators of fan participation.
