In the recent history of the band, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have been known to throw quite the Halloween party wherever they land, dubbing each year with its own unique theme. 2015 saw the theme of "Dead Zeppelin" where PPPP mashed up the music of Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead. For 2016, they took on a more abstract theme, "A Tribute To The Letter P," where the band performed covers of songs which began with the letter "P." Last year's theme for 2017 paid homage to those we've lost with the appropriately named "R.I.P.P.P.P. A Tribute to Musicians We Have Lost," complete with music from Frank Zappa, The Allman Brothers, David Bowie, Notorious B.I.G. and more.
Today, the cat's out of the bag for 2018's special Halloween theme. This year, the guys of PPPP will take on the music of The Beatles and Red Hot Chili Peppers for a night of "Red Hot Sergeant Peppers" over their upcoming four-night run, kicking off on October 31st. Of course, beloved songs from the PPPP catalog can also be expected.
"We’re so stoked about this year’s Halloween run! We’ve been flirting with the idea of doing a Red Hot Sergeant Peppers theme for a couple years and I’m happy that we finally decided to do it while we’re back on the East Coast," shares PPPP frontman, Greg Ormont. "It’s been an absolute blast putting our spin on the material, which is so well written and full of energy. Can’t wait to unleash RHSP on The Flock!"
Limited tickets are still available to the upcoming Halloween run through Richmond, VA (10/31), Charlotte, NC (11/1) and the two-night run in Atlanta, GA (11/2 - 11/3). Those can be purchased through the band's website.
