The Alt rock /cult favorite rock band Ween brought their “Florida Georgia Line” tour to the Fillmore in Miami Beach on Saturday night, much to the delight of their devoted hard-core fans.

The Fillmore - Miami Beach, FL

This was a rare south Florida appearance for the New Hope, PA quintet. The band, known as much for the multitude of genres that influenced their vast catalogue of songs, as they are for their collective sense of humor, tore thru an extensive 35 song set that spanned their 3-decade long year career.

Ween plays their first show in South Florida in more than 10 years

Dean and company’s 2 ½ set included the perennial favorites “The HIV Song”, “Bananas and Blow” and “Piss up a Rope” to the rarely played “Pink Eye”.  “Dean” lead the group thru a first time cover of the Temptations’ ‘‘Pappa was a Rolling Stone “while Instant Deaths’ “The Enabler” rounded out the covers-excluding “Gene’s” verse of the Jefferson Airplanes “White Rabbit” in El Camino.
